St. Louis takes Jason Smith, KC on the clock

As expected, the Rams took the ultra-athletic Jason Smith with the second pick, putting the Chiefs on the clock.

The Chiefs selection at #3 is there this draft could go haywire. Scott Pioli is actively trying to trade this pick and could have interest from clubs looking to get ahead of Seattle, who could take WR Michael Crabtree, QB Mark Sanchez, or LB Aaron Curry.

Ultimately, the Chiefs are going to struggle to trade this pick, which likely forces them to consider one of three options here:
A. LB Aaron Curry
B. DE Tyson Jackson
C. OT Eugene Monroe

Each would fill an area of concern for the Chiefs. Ultimately, the safest and best fit for the Chiefs is Jackson, who could give Kansas City a Ty Warren-like presence at defensive end.
