Past history shows that Philly under Reid was never a team that reached, so it remains quite open whether or not Reid will reach for Smith who is clearly the top QB in this year's draft but likely only a 13-18 ranked prospect.
I see zero opportunity for KC to find a trading partner unless they severely discount the #1 overall pick.
Smith will move up peoples' rankings quite a bit once he gets back in the public eye. Things are silly right now. And his value went up exponentially after the Senior Bowl.
Even so, if a QB is ranked among the Top 32 players, he's good enough to go #1. Especially with the rookie salary slots.
