2013 NFL Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs linked to Geno Smith

Justin K. Aller

Both CBS Sports experts still have the West Virginia quarterback heading to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs are fighting with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the worst record in the NFL at this point, but most mock drafts have them picking first overall after such a horrific season so far. In short, it's hard to see the Chiefs winning another game in 2012. If that's the case, they will have the first overall selection and the latest from CBS Sports experts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have the Chiefs taking West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith at No. 1 overall.

This draft lacks an obvious top-of-the-draft impact quarterback like Andrew Luck last year, but let's not forget that no one thought that highly of Robert Griffin III when the season first started for Baylor -- or even halfway through it. His ascension to No. 2 overall accelerated as the college football season progressed, and the private workouts and interviews cemented his status.

Smith has a 70.1 completion percentage this season to go with 35 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Overall he's thrown for 3,361 yards, although the Mountaineers have really struggled in their first season in the Big 12. That's likely to hurt his draft stock to some degree.

Still the Chiefs could use a quarterback without question and Smith fits the bill.
