On the Monday mailbag version of the Arrowhead Satisfaction Laboratory, we had been requested if the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs ought to contemplate drafting a quarterback on day three that Andy Reid and firm can develop right into a succesful backup or one they might doubtlessly flip sooner or later.
Reid has been capable of maximize the skills of quarterbacks previously. He does an incredible job taking part in to his quarterback’s strengths no matter if it’s Patrick Mahomes or Chad Henne. If there’s ever a scenario to showcase younger, developmental expertise, the inventory on that participant may rise and also you may be capable to get a superb return on funding.
Reid has acknowledged previously that he prefers to have a younger man and an older veteran at quarterback. As Alex Smith aged, the Chiefs aggressively pursued their subsequent quarterback. As Mahomes settled into the beginning position for the Chiefs, they introduced in a veteran in Henne. Mahomes nonetheless qualifies as a youthful quarterback and advantages from the sounding board that Henne and veteran Matt Moore have been to him over the previous few years. That hasn’t stopped the Chiefs from not less than taking a look at some youthful quarterbacks.
Jordan Ta’amu has been on and off the apply squad this final yr. He’s a gifted participant who confirmed promise within the XFL with the St. Louis Battlehawks. To be frank, he’s received extra potential and promise (and nonetheless is simply 23 years previous!) than the day three picks which can be obtainable on this specific draft class. If the Chiefs are going to flip somebody ultimately, Ta’amu has a greater probability than gamers obtainable on this class.
The Chiefs have signed 2020 undrafted free agent Anthony Gordon to a contract as effectively. They’re taking their swings on gamers like these — simply with out investing any draft capital. And the promise of those guys has me extra than this draft class.
