They wouldn't just suck for next year. They would suck for at least another 2 or 3 seasons (development), and more depending if they can find a good QB in the draft, which is incredibly difficult. Last year was an anomaly in terms of drafting a QB.
While KC's poor history of drafting likely means that there won't be enough talent to surround Smith with, that in itself doesn't mean it's a bad trade. Had they not made this trade, maybe they'd hit on one of those two picks ( at a non-QB position) and they would still be stuck in the same position had they traded for Smith, still being a bad team. It's arguable that even with two very good players at non-QB positions, they would still be a bad team.
There's no harm in making this move. At worse, it's a different way to suck, but in the end, they would still stink either way.
