NFL Mock Draft 2013: Will Chiefs Find Long-Term Starter Next Season Instead of 2012?

New, 1 comment

It's impossible (and almost silly) to look ahead one full year to the 2013 NFL Draft, but then again the draftnik in all of us cannot help but reading such projections even if they are meaningless. Charlie Campbell of Walter Football gives the task at hand a shot with a 2013 mock draft that has the Kansas City Chiefs taking a long-term starter at quarterback. Of course, this presumes that they will make no major moves at the position and that their season will not end well. Like I said, it's all silly.

Still, Campbell has the Chiefs grabbing quarterback Tyler Bray of Tennessee. He writes, "In 2011, the 6-foot-6, 210-pound sophomore Bray completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,983 yards with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions. He had a hand/thumb injury that caused him to miss five games and hurt him down the stretch. Bray has all the physical tools to be a first-round quarterback, and before the hand injury, made progress to improve his accuracy compared to his freshman season."

If the Chiefs have to select a quarterback next year, that doesn't bode well for the position or their finish this season in 2012. Here's hoping something can happen this year to solidify the position and ensure the Chiefs have a draft choice much later in 2013.
