Ravens Drafting A Quarterback In 2018 Would Be Ludicrous


By Glenn Clark, PressBox

I don't know what would have happened if the Kansas City Chiefs hadn't traded for and then drafted quarterback Pat Mahomes in the 2017 NFL Draft. Perhaps they would have stayed in the 27th spot and taken the same player (cornerback Tre'Davious White) the Buffalo Bills ultimately selected in that spot.

If you're unaware, White had an exceptional season for the Bills. In fact, Pro Football Focus named him their 2017 Rookie of the Year. There's no guarantee that if White had played for the Chiefs he would have ended up being responsible for creating the same seven turnovers he did for Buffalo this season. But it feels like it might not be unreasonable to think that after losing All-Pro safety Eric Berry, Kansas City would have been better off with a player such as White in their secondary. Maybe it's not such a stretch that White would have been a better option for solving their problems than pulling veteran Darrelle Revis off the scrap heap.

Just maybe if the Chiefs had drafted White instead of a player whose only game action came in a meaningless Week 17 contest their season may have gone differently. Perhaps they would have been in better position to get a first-round bye and make a deep run in the playoffs. Perhaps the team that overwhelmed the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., this season (with a healthy Berry) would have had a chance to make their first trip to a Super Bowl in nearly five decades.
