The Chiefs would be great. Basically I'd like to see him go anywhere but Cleveland or some team that needs help almost everywhere.
But my prediction is Cleveland at the beginning of the 2nd round.

He needs to go somewhere that has a somewhat decent offensive line. He's not mobile and, at his age especially, don't want him taking a beating like Stafford or Gabbert did their first years. If he goes to a team that will give him a fighting chance to stand in the pocket and toss it to a couple decent receivers he'll be alright. He's a natural leader and a gamer, but he's not going to bring a team back from the depths. Not many rookie QB's can.
Going to a team like KC that has a pretty decent defense (top 15 or so if I remember right) would really help him and maybe give him a couple extra chances a game. Rookie QB's that are coupled with trash defenses (see Stafford for quick example) are prime recipe for a 10/20 TD/INT first season in the league. He'll find success wherever he goes because that's the type of person he is, but if thrown into the right circumstance and with a little bit of luck, Weeden could find some W's very early in his career.
