Reminder: 2013 NFL mock drafts are going to be all over the place over the next two months until the actual draft in April. The latest one from NFL.com has the Kansas City Chiefs taking a left tackle.
The latest 2013 NFL mock draft from The Godfather Gil Brandt has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Luke Joeckel, left tackle out of Texas A&M. I have my gripes with not picking a quarterback here but I can understand some of the logic behind it -- left tackles are generally close to sure-things high in the NFL Draft. So pick someone where you can assure yourself you know what you're getting.
Usually when someone sends a non-quarterback to the Chiefs in their mock draft, it's because they don't feel that a quarterback is worthy of the No. 1 pick.
That's where Brandt's mock loses me a little.
So Brandt obviously feels that a quarterback could go early in this draft -- two of them he has going in the top 10.
I just don't know why he wouldn't have the Chiefs taking one of those quarterbacks.
His board of the top 25 players -- just the best players, not a mock draft --includes no quarterbacks.
Also, a reminder that mock draft opinions are going to be all over the place this year:
Just filed my first Mock Draft of 2013. And how about this ... No quarterbacks in the first round. Will be up at NFL.com soon.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 15, 2013
