Who should be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft? There’s no consensus pick this year like there was in 2012 when Andrew Luck was considered the surest player to enter the draft since Peyton Manning nearly 15 years earlier. There are some very safe picks near the top of the board this year, but they’re all linemen, so although these studs are just as valuable as players like Luck, they don’t get the same attention because they’re not skill-position players.
Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel is widely considered the best option available for the Kansas City Chiefs, who hold the No. 1 overall pick. Joeckel is a stud of a left tackle who would undoubtedly provide solid protection to new Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith‘s blind side for the next several years. However, he’s not the only hoss of a left tackle who could go first overall.
Eric Fisher is getting no attention whatsoever, but that’s only because he’s from Central Michigan. He’s a big, strong and relatively quick offensive tackle who will be a brick wall on the left side of an NFL team’s line for the next decade just like Joeckel. He’s also very deserving of the first overall pick in this year’s draft.
The best quarterbacks available are not worth the first overall pick, or even a top-10 pick for that matter, but they’ll definitely be over-drafted simply because of the position they play.
