The post-Super Bowl 2013 NFL Mock Draft is out at FanSided.com and once again, the Kansas City Chiefs are selecting a tackle.
And yes, it is the tackle you’d expect.
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.
These picks are getting a little repetitive to be sure but to be fair, there aren’t many other mocks out there predicting anything different. Just take a look at this list from Walter Football.
Don’t discourage, however because draft season is about to heat up. The NFL Scouting Combine kicks off later this month.
