Tuck: 2013 NFL Mock Draft

My initial thoughts:

I've never seen so much debate on a draft board. ?Guys can go top 5 in one mock, and outside the top 20 in another.

The Chiefs decision may hinge on whether or not they resign OT Branden Albert.

Health is a major concern for two of the best players in this draft. ?Star Lotulelei and Jarvis Jones are almost impossible to project today.

I didn't include a quarterback in the first round, but I'd expect all the teams picking in the late-20's to get phone calls about moving down into the second round so that someone can move up to grab a quarterback or two.

And finally, a reminder that the draft is?7 rounds. ?You don't necessarily draft your biggest need in the first round, even though it looks to make sense in a mock draft.
