NFL Mock Draft 2013: Chiefs Select Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson

Many fans of the Kansas City Chiefs wonder whether Brady Quinn represents the "competition for Matt Cassel" mentioned by the front office in press conference this offseason or whether more names for the quarterback depth chart are coming later. But if the competition stays between Quinn, Matt Cassel and Ricky Stanzi on the roster, it might mean the Chiefs will find their long-term answer at quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft. As Charlie Campbell looks forward, he believes that Kansas City will do just that. He writes:

The Chiefs need a long-term quarterback. In 2011, Wilson completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,638 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions. He improved as the season progressed and has gotten good preparation for the pro game from Bobby Petrino. Wilson has good field vision, a strong arm and accuracy. He should produce a big 2012 season even though he is losing a good cast of receivers.

Coming from a Petrino offense, Wilson would definitely be an intriguing candidate for the Chiefs. It's an exercise in futility to look so far ahead, yet it's also part of the fun of figuring out how the Chiefs roster will continue to turn over and find new talent. Whether it's Tyler Bray or Wilson, the Chiefs are a solid bet to find someone next year if they fail to acquire anyone else in 2012.
