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 is7 rounds. You don't necessarily draft your biggest need in the first round, even though it looks to make sense in a mock draft.
