The folks over at FanSided.com will be releasing weekly 2013 NFL mock drafts from now right up until zero hour. Each Tuesday, we’ll being you a recap of who they have the Chiefs choosing and we’ll link you the mock.
Last, week, the Chiefs selected QB Matt Barkely out of USC. While Barkley wasn’t the most popular pick, most of our readers seemed happy with the QB selection.
Now on to this week.
With the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia.
Here is what they had to say about the pick.
The Kansas City Chiefs need to find a franchise signal-caller. There is no debating that. Unfortunately for Kansas City, this is a weak year to have the first-overall pick but they need to grab the top quarterback on the board in hopes of moving the franchise forward. In the 2013 NFL Draft class, the top quarterback is none other than Geno Smith.
I am still doing my research but as of now this would be my pick. I know that Smith cooled somewhat after a very hot start. Still, he has an impressive skill set for a QB, he takes care of the football and he has very solid down-field accuracy… something a Chiefs QB hasn’t had since, well, maybe ever.
