The latest FanSided mock draft is up over at FanSided.com and for the first time in a few weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs are not drafting QB Geno Smith.
Here is the pick:
1. Kansas City Chiefs – Luke Joeckel, OT/Texas A&M
The Chiefs need a signal caller, but they can easily get on later in the draft. With Andy Reid in town, the Chiefs will be going in an entirely new direction (well actually it’ll just be nice for them to be going in a direction), plus both Reid and new GM John Dorsey have said the Chiefs will draft the best player available with the first pick, and that’s Joeckel. Reid lost his job because his offensive line in Philly couldn’t block and now that he’s in Kansas City, it has got to be in the forefront of his mind. If the Chiefs go with Joeckel here, expect Landry Jones or Matt Barkley to come off the board at the start of the second day.
This fits in nicely with a very popular post we had over the weekend from AA staffer Nathan Bramwell. Nathan, though he is on the QB bandwagon, made a case for this pick. The post is well over 150 comments so jump in and join the discussion.
