2013 NFL Mock Draft: Updated January 3rd, 2013

1. Kansas City Chiefs
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia (SCOUTING REPORT)
There isn’t an Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III in this draft class, just like most years. That isn’t to say that this class of quarterbacks doesn’t have talent – they’ll just need a little more development.

Smith has phenomenal touch down the field and is comfortable with pressure in his face, two things that the Chiefs have lacked with Matt Cassel under center. Kansas City could also take the best player available here and target a second tier quarterback (Matt Barkley, Ryan Nassib, Mike Glennon, Zac Dysert) with their second round pick.
