The Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock and will soon be deciding which player they will select No. 1 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Most experts believe KC will select one of the top tackles in the draft, either Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel or Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher.
Speaking recently with John McMullen of The Sports Network, Joeckel reflected on his excitement entering the draft.
“It’s just crazy to think about,” Joeckel said. “Starting football in the second grade, you don’t really think about that kind of stuff.”
While it is one thing just to be draft, having the potential to be taken No. 1 overall is something else entirely. The concept is not lost on Joeckel.
“It would be really cool. A dream come true,” Joeckel added. ” But the way I’m just looking at it, I want to get there. I am definitely striving to be the No. 1 pick, going through this entire process. But my dream is to just play in the NFL.”
Joeckel should be excited to join the Chiefs. Then again, I’d guess he’d be equally excited to join the Jaguars should Jacksonville be picking No. 1.
In the QB era, it is pretty rare for a tackle to be taken at the top of the draft.
While it seems pretty obvious that the Chiefs will take a tackle, I admit I am totally clueless as to what they will do. As far as I can tell, KC could be just as interested in Fisher as they are in Joeckel.
Thankfully, we only have to wait a few more weeks for this to all play out.
