Chiefs had DeShone Kizer in for a visit

The Chiefs kicked off this week by having Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson in for a visit and he’s not the only quarterback they’re checking out with the draft approaching.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer has also been in for a visit with the team. Kizer has drawn a great deal of interest in recent weeks, working out for the Chargers, Bears, Jets and Browns during that span, and joins Watson, North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky and Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes as the most-discussed prospects at the position.

Part of the discussion around Kizer has come from his college coach Brian Kelly, who said this week that he believes Kizer should still be in South Bend playing for the Irish rather than preparing to get paid for playing football. Kelly praised the quarterback’s skills while calling himĀ “an unfinished product” who would benefit from more tutelage at the college level.

That may not be a major issue for the Chiefs, however. With Alex Smith still on the roster, Kizer would have time to continue learning and refining his game before Kansas City would be thinking about putting him in the lineup and their meeting may have given them a better idea about how well that would fit into their plans at the position.

    I just hope whichever qb the Chiefs draft, it turns out to be a good one. How many teams have taken qbs in round 1 that have flopped.

    Prediction…Watson, Mahomes, Trubisky & Kizer will all be gone before the Chiefs have a chance to get any of them. Unless Andy does something unprecedented in Chiefs history and actually move up in the draft to get a QB.

    Proving that Brian Kelly’s ramblings mean nothing to the Chiefs or any other NFL team.

    Had him in for what? Offering him a position of being charge of food and beverage for the North endzone concourse?

    No way this guy is an NFL QB.

    When was the last time the Chiefs got a good QB in the draft?

    As Carson searches for the next Dak Prescott to replace Philip Rivers, rookie Lynn should stop talking about it. The Beavis and Buthead “mob” leaders (Spanos/Fabiani) should cut that talk off immediately. It’s good to start looking, but why talk about it when Rivers and numerous team members question and outright dislike the disastrous re-location to La-La-Land. This team would have had an outstanding bounce-back season in San Diego with the real possibility of the playoffs. Not gonna happen in Carson with NO HOME GAMES. The Spanos timing is pathetic. Spanos management is pathetic and always has been. Until he sells the team which is being set up to do.
