Jeremiah: Draft QB question marks
After a long bowl trip, Daniel Jeremiah shares his thoughts, including not-so-glowing remarks about a few QBs. More ...
"We all know there is some pressure involved in (selecting No. 1)," Dorsey said on Monday, via The Kansas City Star. "You make the right pick by choosing the best player available. I know of no other philosophy."
With no Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III-type surefire top-end quarterback in the 2013 draft, many draft experts have debated if the Chiefs should take the highest-rated quarterback -- at this point, widely viewed as West Virginia's Geno Smith -- or bypass the position hoping to find value in later rounds.
During Dorsey's 14 years in Green Bay, the Packers drafted in the top 10 just twice, so he's familiar with helping uncover talent later in rounds.
Winning teams have lived by the best-player-available mantra to great success, and having a quarterback-friendly coach in Andy Reid on the sideline will make it easier for Dorsey to follow that plan. The Chiefs aren't devoid of talent on either side of the ball and are a candidate to be one of next season's pathetic-to-playoffs teams if they can answer the quarterback question.
