2013 NFL Draft Preview From Rant Sports
It’s clear the Chiefs should focus on selecting an offensive lineman in this year’s draft class and even though they have a few prospects to choose from, Joeckel seems like their best and safest option. Other players like Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson will most likely end up being top-10 picks as well, but there’s a reason why Joeckel has arguably been considered the best offensive lineman in this year’s draft class.
Plus, Kansas City already acquired Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers during the offseason–so there’s no reason for them to use the top pick on a quarterback.
When looking at the quarterbacks from this year’s draft class, USC‘s Matt Barkley is certainly one to keep an eye on as nobody really knows what to expect from the college star. A team like the Buffalo Bills could easily select Barkley at No. 8 with the fear of missing out on him if they try to wait until the next round to draft him. Despite what happened with the Trojans last year, keep in mind that Barkley would have been a top-10 pick last year if he didn’t return to school for his senior season–so the potential is there when it comes to being the top quarterback from this year’s class that seems the most NFL ready.
As for the wide receiver position, it wouldn’t be a surprise if West Virginia’s Tavon Austin gained interest from a team like the St. Louis Rams at No. 16. The Rams could certainly use an explosive playmaker on offense to provide Sam Bradford with another effective weapon–so it will be interesting to see if he’s still available at No. 16 once the draft gets under way.
