Reid: Chiefs would listen but not likely to deal No. 1 pick

INDIANAPOLIS _ Andy Reid had the No. 2 overall pick with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999 and chose quarterback Donovan McNabb, who became the club's franchise quarterback for a decade or more.

Now in Kansas City, Reid is charged with rebuilding the woebegone Chiefs and has the No.1 overall pick to do so. He needs a quarterback, but there doesn't appear to be a player of McNabb's potential worthy of being taken that high in this year's draft.

Yet, Reid sounds as if the Chiefs will use the pick to bolster another spot of need, and try another route to find a quarterback. Left tackle Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M has been speculated as one possibility.

As for trading the pick, Reid indicated Thursday at the NFL Combine that he would listen, but apparently would have to be overwhelmed with an offer to part with it, even if there is no sure-thing franchise quarterback to be taken with it.

"It's a pretty valuable pick," Reid said of having this year's top selection.

The question now becomes what to do what that "pretty valuable pick."
