NFL Mock Draft 2013: Kansas City Chiefs Linked With Georgia's Jarvis Jones

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently seeing signs of life in former Georgia linebacker Justin Houston, the team's third round choice this spring. The reason for selecting Houston was because of his pass rushing abilities in college and the hopes he could become the same threat at the pro level across from Tamba Hali. Yet Charlie Campbell looks ahead a couple of years to see what the Chiefs could pick if Houston doesn't work out. He has the Chiefs selecting another Georgia linebacker in Jarvis Jones in a 2013 Mock NFL Draft.

Campbell writes, "If Justin Houston doesn't prove to be a quality edge rusher in 2012, the Chiefs will have to find a pass rusher to pair with Tamba Hali. Jones has been one of the best pass rushers in college football in 2011. He has the second most sacks in the nation, 13.5. Jones also has 69 tackles with 19.5 tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles. The USC transfer has fit well in the Georgia defense and looks like an ideal 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level. The 6-foot-3, 241-pounder should be able to add some bulk to hold up on the edge in the NFL."
