That may sound like an insult to his ability, but it's not; I see nothing wrong with being a starter rated somewhere between 15 and 20. Is that enough to go 1st overall to the Chiefs? Honestly it probably is because they need a guy who can manage a game and make the necessary throws since they have an established ground attack and a bunch of talent on defense. I don't see an especially high ceiling with Geno nor do I see a low floor. Sam Bradford and Alex Smith, both being 1st overall picks, have come in and become steady QB's, nothing special, and Geno will be much the same.
I like your analysis of the situation with Smith. what I think is entirely possible is that guys like Wilson hand Glennon might actually be better NFL QBs. To me it's still t be determined.
