2013 NFL Mock Draft: 2 Round Regular Season Final

<strong><strong>1. Kansas City Chiefs</strong> - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia</strong><br>
What is clear is the desperate need for a quarterback in Kansas City. A couple weeks ago, I picked USC's Matt Barkley and was pretty comfortable with him in the top spot. But a lot of what I've seen and heard is that Barkley's stock is plummeting and Smith is viewed by many in the NFL as the better prospect. Smith had a ridiculous season this year (71.4 completion percentage, 40 touchdown passes and only six interceptions) and is big enough (6-3, 208) to step into the NFL. If they don't trade for an available veteran, the Chiefs will likely use the top pick on a quarterback.

We also have nearly one-third of the league looking for a new head coach and a half-dozen teams replacing their general manager… so far.

Next spring’s NFL Draft could be one of the more intriguing in recent memory.
