2013 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs Linked To Cornerback Johnthan Banks

Over at BuffaloBillsDraft.com, a new 2013 NFL Mock Draft is up that's interesting for the reason that it defies commonly held beliefs for the Kansas City Chiefs in next year's draft. Most draft pundits have the Chiefs taking the highest possible quarterback available given that Matt Cassel has proved to be rather average his first few seasons on the job in KC. However, this mock has the Chiefs addressing the secondary.

That's an interesting point to make since the Chiefs lost Brandon Carr this offseason to the Dallas Cowboys and grabbed Stanford Routt to replace him. Routt is a nice player to put in Carr's spot, but given that Brandon Flowers will be another year older and wiser, it makes sense to go all in on another first round talent at cornerback in a league where you can never have enough talent in the secondary.

In this case, Johnthan Banks of Mississippi State is the pick:

While the Chiefs did add former Raiders CB Stanford Routt to try and help get over the loss of Brandon Flowers. In the end though the better choice may be to draft another young CB and with Banks laying here that decision is made even easier."

Banks had 71 tackles and 4 interceptions last season.
