The trade that will send Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers to the Chiefs apparently will cost Kansas City a second-round pick in this year's draft and another second-rounder in 2014, per Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.
The second-rounder in this year's draft is a pretty valuable pick, considering the Chiefs 2-14 record, as it would be the 34th overall choice. The value of the 2014 pick obviously remains to be seen, depending upon how much Smith and new head coach Andy Reid can improve the Chiefs this season.
By acquiring Smith, the Chiefs may have solved their biggest dilemma before the draft, especially seeing that there was no quarterback in this year's draft regarded as a sure-fire prospect, the way Andrew Luck was seen last year when the Colts chose him first overall.
