Summary

Veteran signal caller Alex Smith returns for his third season as Chiefs starter. He is an accurate passer with good decision making ability but is considered a game manager with limited downfield ability. Smith has the mobility to pick up some yardage on the ground when the situation calls for it and has been durable throughout his time with the Chiefs. If the OL improves play from last year as expected, Smith will have plenty of time in the pocket to show off his accuracy and decision making ability. The WR position was bereft of talent last season but the team has upgraded the position through free agency and the draft, while RB and TE will continue to be strengths of the team. Expect Smith to be a solid QB2 with some upside and the potential to outperform his draft ranking. (May 16)
