2013 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs stick with Geno Smith in latest mock

Chris Graythen

Another week, another debate over what the Chiefs should do with the top pick.

Are Chiefs fans sick of discussing the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft yet? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Here at SB Nation, we recently unveiled our latest mock draft, which was a collaborative effort between Dan Kadar and me. I was in charge of the odd numbered picks and stuck with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith for Kansas City at No. 1.

Smith is far from the consensus pick at this point. Many Chiefs fans want the team to upgrade the offensive line with Luke Joeckel or add one of the impact defensive players this class has to offer. But with the the quarterback situation in its current state, prior to free agency, the Chiefs have to do something to address it. Granted, the team could look to make an upgrade at quarterback through free agency or trade, but that's tough to predict at this point. Instead, we stick with Smith at the No. 1 spot, a player who fills a need and has the talent and upside to warrant the pick.

Here's the explanation from the mock.

I've said it before and will say it again, if a team needs a quarterback, that is the team's biggest need. Geno Smith is getting mixed reviews at the moment, but at this point in the process, he is still our No. 1 rated quarterback. Between now and April, a lot can change as far as the Chiefs' needs are concerned. For now, we'll stick with the quarterback.
