The San Francisco 49ers have completed a trade with the Chiefs for Alex Smith, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports (https://twitter.com/JayGlazer/status/306809645597605888). The trade won't be official until March 12th.

Adam Schefter of ESPN (https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/306816197364682752) reports the Chiefs will trade second-round pick this year - the top pick in second round - as well as another conditional mid-round pick in 2014.

A good trade for both teams IMO. The Chiefs really pick the wrong year to have the no.1 pick. Alex Smith no doubt is a better investment.

They get the LT they need in the draft

Are you referring to Geno Smith?

Should've used the second rounder on a quarterback that you can groom for the future. How many years does SMith have left. Bad trade on both sides tbh. Kaep has a legitimate chance to regress from this year with all the time and new tape teams have to study, plus his style of play increasees his chances to get hurt, and Smith's a proven player who thrived under Harbaugh.

Alex Smith definitely improved his game under Harbaugh. I think it was a good move by KC. If Kaepernick continues to improve SF will be in good position as well.

Smith has more years than a coach with no QB would have. Who could they get in the 2nd who's better?

Mock drafts I've seen have had bothGeno and Barkley in the late first-early second bracket. Wouldn't surprise me if either fell to the 33rd pick, and Barkley particularly has a shot to be a franchise qb in the league if he starts in a good system. I'd rather keep the picks and take my chances on someone to build around. Both of their ceilings are higher than Alex's, and they would both generate fan interest more than Alex. Besides, Alex has failed more often than not when forced to learn a new system, it was only until Harbaugh came along when he really became pretty good. Reid's system isn't the most friendly to a game managing quarterack like Alex. I just don't see it ending well for them.

Some months back this pundit spat out this fact that the Chiefs have not drafted a QB who has STARTED for them since Todd Blackledge.

Smith makes [at least] four former San Fran QB's since 1990 (Montana, Bono, Grbac).

As far as availability/choices/moves go this is probably the best the Chiefs could do. Considering the Chiefs lack of offensive threats and their solid D, a 'game manager' like Smith may be a solid fit to maximize thier limited winning potential.

It will be interesting to see how Smith fares in Reid's system on an offense which will probably be on par with the 49ers during his first three years in the league.

geno smith....
3 raiders - this wouldn't be the craziest draft choice they've made. plus palmer is 33 years old.
6 browns - weeden was a desperation pick.. the guy will be 30 this year.
7 arizona - still needs a qb
8 buffalo - desperate for a franchise qb
9 jets - the sanchise chapter is ova
10 tenn - locker has shown nothing
18 cowboys - romo is 33, with nobody behind him

I think Geno goes to Zona.

Bruce Arians is thought of as being an excellent choice to develop young quarterbacks. And as several members of this forum will tell you... Arians is the bestest coach of all time because he got a meaningless award last year. I think the Chiefs will trust Arians to turn G. Smith into a franchise quarterback.

Smith ain't goin to tha cowboys, anymore than he is the steelers, romo probably has more years left than ben does.
