2013 NFL trade rumors: Darrelle Revis worth Chiefs 1st-round pick?

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Could the Chiefs get the best cornerback in football for the No. 1 pick?

Here's something to wrap your head around: Would the Kansas City Chiefs trade the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft for Darrelle Revis?

It might be a smart move for the Chiefs, writes ESPN's Bill Williamson:

I could see a scenario where the Chiefs could use the No. 1 pick as bait and get Revis, who played for new Kansas City defensive coordinator Bob Sutton in New York, and the No. 9 pick in return. There may have to be some additions on either side, but I'm not sure the Jets could get a better offer.

The Chiefs could then pair Revis with Brandon Flowers and have one of the best cornerback situations in the NFL.

There is no inkling that this trade is going to happen. In fact, there is no inkling that the Chiefs have ever even thought about trading the No. 1 pick to the New York Jets for Revis. This is just Williamson throwing the idea at the wall to see what people think.

However, there has been talk recently that the Chiefs might be interested in trading the No. 1 pick.

Williamson argues the No. 1 pick has become "murky" over recent weeks. Will it be West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith? Probably not if the Chiefs acquire quarterback Alex Smith via trade. Williamson also writes that with Star Lotulelei having a heart condition, the No. 1 pick is even more up in the air.

In the latest SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, Matthew Fairburn has the Chiefs selecting Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the No. 1 overall selection.
