***For the 2nd edition of the 2013 NFL Mock Draft…CLICK HERE***
The promise has come true, as the first edition of the 2013 NFL Mock Draft is released.
Now this is based on my interpretation, and not copying some other professional prognosticator.
This is a very weak draft, and thus it might allow teams to wait until later rounds to take players at specific positions.
The one big difference you might see is the absence of a certain quarterback. West Virginia QB Geno Smith has a lot of skills, and that might be more of where the league is going. However, of the top quarterbacks, Southern Cal QB Matt Barkley is the better prospect.
Now, I do believe Smith gets picked up in the first round, but based on the teams right now, he is not in the mock draft. But there will be some team that will jump back into day one of the draft to pick him up.
