2013 NFL mock draft: Trades will screw up all of our predictions

Gil Brandt's 2013 NFL mock draft has been released and to no one's surprise he has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel. Boring! (But still a good pick!)

What else is going on in Gil Brandt's 2013 NFL mock draft? Lots of stuff. Take a look below at a few of the notables in the top 10:

Ziggy Ansah goes No. 2 overall -- Maybe 'ol Gil Brandt knows a thing or two about the draft. This would be a surprise pick but you also have to remember that Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and GM John Dorsey also traveled to BYU to work out Ansah, which could mean he was at least under consideration for the No. 1 pick for some period of time.

Jets trade up to No. 3 (Raiders) to select Dee Milliner -- Replacing Darrelle Revis. Good luck with that. No. 3 is apparently just far enough down to garner some trade talk while No. 1 is too high.

Chargers trade up to No. 4 (Eagles) to select Eric Fisher -- Hmm. The Chargers do need offensive line help. It's why that BS rumor that started the other day about the Chiefs trading Branden Albert to San Diego actually fooled some people. The Eagles are said to be looking to trade back and they look like they're in a terrific spot to do so. If the Jaguars and Raiders pass on Eric Fisher (or Luke Joeckel if the Chiefs don't take him), teams wanting a day-one starter at offensive tackle will need to call the Eagles.

Top OTs off the board by No. 5 -- Lane Johnson to the Lions with the fifth pick. A few weeks ago it was crazy talk to put Lane Johnson in the top five. Now it's crazy talk to leave him out. The draft, everybody!

Raiders take Sharrif Floyd at No. 9 -- Many people are mocking Floyd to Oakland with the third pick. The Raiders would probably love this scenario -- get picks and the player you want.

Eagles take Geno Smith at No. 11 -- A little more reasonable at 11 than four.
