2013 NFL Mock Draft

2013 NFL DraftThe 2013 NFL Draft is finally upon us as we are five hours away from the start of the event. The Kansas City Chiefs hold the all important number one pick and it is almost a certainty that they will take an offensive tackle. Consensus says they’ll take Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckle, but the last two days there has been rumblings that they may take Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher. Unless the Chiefs trade the number one pick, which is a possibility, it looks like they’ll be taking an offensive tackle to protect their new quarterback, Alex Smith. After that pick, the draft is completely wide open and anything can happen. Many experts, NFL reporters, and NFL general managers are saying that this will be the most unpredictable NFL draft in a very long time, and for some, in their whole careers. Their not many prospects at all that people are absolutely crazy about and that’s why this draft is so unpredictable. There may well be a lot of trades tonight with some teams trying to move up and some teams trying to move back. There are more teams interested in moving back, then up. The New York Jets, St.Louis Rams, and Minnesota Vikings each hold two first round picks, and those three teams very well could be the three most likely teams to trade down. With this draft so wide open and no concrete plans yet for any picks, expect a lot of “WOW!” moments and quite a bit of trades. This draft is heavy on the offensive and defensive lines, and not so much at the skill positions, especially running back and quarterback a little bit, depending on how you view this years quarterbacks, and if you’re me, you’re not too impressed with this year’s crop of quarterbacks.

In this mock draft I enlisted the help of two friends, Joe and Kevin, who both know their stuff when it comes to football and the draft, to make this a more fun and interactive mock draft, rather than me doing it all by myself. You can follow Joe on twitter at @JoeyReg14. I’d add Kevin’s twitter handle, but he isn’t involved in any social media sites, so you can’t follow him anywhere. We did not inflict any trades in this mock as that is way too unpredictable and not needed at this point. If you have any questions or points you want to make to us about this mock draft, feel free to tweet us, you can also find me on twitter at @ScoreboardSteve. Enjoy our mock draft and enjoy the 2013 NFL Draft tonight!
