I highly doubt that KC goes for Geno, now that they just traded a R2 pick for Alex Smith. In the top ten, who knows who takes Geno...

Oakland? Maybe.
Buffalo? Possibly.
Arizona? Likely.

Regardless, my instincts tell me that Dallas is looking strongly at EJ Manual... and so are a few other teams (Oakland, Buffalo, Arizona) who might trade up from the top of R2 (assuming that they didn't draft Geno).

Geno will be the first pick and KC won't be making it. I thought that was obvious. It will be Clev, Oak, Buf or even Philly trading up.

Obvious? You think its obvious that someone will trade up to #1 to take Geno? What? Why not trade to nnumber 3 because you know the first 3 won't take him

Yes, because he won't get past the 2nd pick if KC stands pat. The other suitors know that.

The BPA on the Steeler board will be picked first. That's Colbert's MO.
We need an infusion of talent everywhere which is why I think he's going to trust his scouting dept. and board at each and every pick.

KC is clearly looking to trade their #1 pick and will offer it to any suitors. They need more talent than that one pick will give them so if they can get some extra picks this year and even next, they will trade it. Andy Reid is building a team and does not want to simply inherit a team.

I agree they would like to trade it but there are no Lucks or Griffins this year so I doubt anyonewwill take that first pick considering what they would have to give up. Nobody really stands out as a must have number one pick this year

BUT, think about the red-zone. BB loves the TE (always has). Heck, even Pope got a TD. More importantly, the Steelers run a two-TE set on 50% of their plays.

Thus, I am not at all opposed to a TE... because, a TE is indeed a "tall pass-catcher."

R1: Eiffert
R2: Ertz
R3: Escobar
This article entitled "NFL draft rankings: Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert has Pro Bowl potential" sounds just like you (and me):

Holy crap!!! I should get some sort of commission from Sporting News... the "Big-E" thing has been my mantra for months. LOL

Good find, man.
