NFL Mock Draft 2013: Chiefs still eyeing a quarterback

Andy Lyons

Experts weigh in on who the Chiefs will target in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The 2012 season has been a trying one for fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, but if there is one solace, it would be having the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft in April. With that pick, experts still believe the Chiefs are eying a quarterback to improve the passing game.

According to the latest mock drafts from CBS Sports, analysts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have the Chiefs selecting West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith with the first overall pick.

Smith was perhaps the most accurate quarterback in college football in 2012. In addition to his second-best completion percentage of 71.4 percent, Smith also boasts the nation's best touchdown to interception ratio. The 6'3 quarterback threw 40 touchdowns passes and only six interceptions in 490 pass attempts.

Smith also threw for more than 4,000 yards in both his junior and senior seasons, and has thrown only 21 interceptions in 1,437 career pass attempts.

Such an accurate quarterback would be a welcome site for Chiefs fans as Kansas City's passing offense currently ranks second-to-last in the NFL.
