One of the most well-respected NFL draft analysts out there, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, says there are only four players the Kansas City Chiefs should consider taking with the #1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Mayock said on a conference call Monday that some people will say he’s crazy to potentially take a guard at No. 1 overall, but Mayock says Warmack is the best player in this draft. So he doesn’t see it as crazy at all.
In the end, Mayock believes the pick could come down to Joekel or Warmack. This is a draft in which the top-shelf players don’t stand apart too much, and there might not be a huge difference between picks No. 5 and 25. That makes it a tricky spot for the Chiefs.
Could thinks be much worse for the Chiefs? The team was perfectly set up to lay and egg in 2012 and instead, they rallied around Romeo Crennel and somehow managed to win enough games to put themselves out of the running for Andrew Luck and RG3.
Now here we sit, a year later, with the #1 pick, and the best draft analyst in the game is telling us we should probably take a guard.
I don’t know if any of the QBs in this year’s draft are going to make it in the NFL but I do know that the Chiefs aren’t going to win squat if they don’t get a QB. And taking a guard or a tackle, even if the kid can block three defensive players all by himself at the same time, won’t mean a damn if the Chiefs can’t score.
If there is one thing worse than having your team be so bad that they have the #1 pick, it is there not being any players worth being excited about to use the pick to select.
