2013 NFL Mock Draft: Pre-Combine Edition

<strong><strong>1. Kansas City Chiefs</strong> - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M</strong><br>
The Chiefs' new coach, Andy Reid, will want to build an offense, but their front office will have a tough decision this summer. Both WR Dwayne Bowe and OT Branden Albert need a new contract, and the team can only franchise one of them. If they cannot pay Albert, replacing him with the top tackle in the draft makes sense.

The salary cap, accompanying the unprecedented change at head coach... Read more »

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Seventh Heaven
Over the course of the 2012 NFL season, we’ve spent time every couple weeks looking ahead to the 2013 NFL Draft.

There has been a lot of movement with... Read more »
