Here is a mock draft of the top 10 picks in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft.
Kansas City Chiefs
Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M
With no Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III “can’t miss” franchise quarterback to take, the Chiefs will have to settle for the best (and safest) player available.
Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Athletic 320-pounder commands constant double-teams and is one of the few legitimate candidates to go No. 1 overall in the draft.
Demontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
Von Miller’s replacement at A&M could very well go one spot lower than the 2011 Defensive Rookie of the Year and 2012 Defensive Player of the Year candidate.
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
If Smith doesn’t go to Kansas City’s new regime at No. 1 or Jacksonville’s new regime at No. 2, he’ll probably land with Chip Kelly and Philly’s new regime here at No. 4 overall.
Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
Motown’s secondary was one of the worst in the game last season, Milliner is an immediate upgrade with the versatility to play nearly any scheme and play it well.
Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
Health concerns may cause the top Dawg to fall down draft boards, but the best 3-4 outside linebacker in the draft would be a perfect fit in the Dawg Pound.
Matt Barkley, QB, USC
At the end of the day, who would the Cardinals rather have under center, Kevin Kolb? John Skelton? Sure, Matt Barkley might be Matt Leinart 2.0, but it’s worth a shot.
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State
Like Barkley, the 6’7” cannon-armed Glennon may fall to the late first round — but that’s what “experts” said about Jake Locker (No. 8) and Christian Ponder (No. 12).
New York Jets
Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
An athletic freak whose production has not matched his potential, Mingo is a classic boom-or-bust prospect with a low floor but a sky-high ceiling.
Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
The Berlin born Bjoern has a relentless motor; a strong Combine showing would give Werner a chance to be the highest-drafted FSU player ever (No. 3, Andre Wadsworth).
