So the 2013 NFL Combine is behind us. We now have a clearer indication of the top draft prospects after they were put through their paces in Indianapolis. Here is a Mock Draft reflecting the progress of College hopefuls as we move ever closer to Draft Day.
1. Kansas City Chiefs:
Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A & M.
While I still think this pick might be Geno Smith, word coming out of the Chiefs is they have traded for 49ers QB Alex Smith. This is not the smart way to go in my opinion. Certainly not at the price (2nd Round, 2nd next year). This pick now becomes a no-brainer. If they want their investment to thrive he must be given time to go through his progressions.
Joeckel is the best Offensive Tackle prospect in this Draft and is in the top 5 on everyone's boards. He cemented this status by having a solid Combine and fills a huge need for the Chiefs. They have to keep whoever is throwing the ball upright, something Cassell and Quinn haven't had the luxury of. Joeckel should be a first day starter at Left Tackle and that position will not be a worry for the foreseeable future.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars:
Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida.
