The race to be number one has come to a finish — sort of.
With today’s 21-3 loss to the Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs have secured the number one overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Who will be the man in charge of making the first selection in April? That will be the next question for Kansas City.
The first pick in the draft can be a blessing for teams looking to turn around the future of their franchise. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, this is believed to be one of the worst years in recent memory to have the top pick due to a lack of any elite prospect.
Who are some possibilities for the Chiefs? Well, all Kansas City needs to do this offseason is talent, so here is a list of who many to believe the top five prospects eligible for this year’s draft:
- Star Lotulelei, Defensive Tackle, Utah
- Damontre Moore, Defensive End, Texas A&M
- Luke Joeckel, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M
- Chance Warmack, Offensive Guard, Alabama
- Jarvis Jones, Defensive End/Outside Linebacker, Georgia
Of course, the Chiefs are also in serious need of a franchise quarterback, so they could very likely pull the trigger on a signal-caller with the first pick in the draft. Out of the quarterbacks in this year’s class, Geno Smith of West Virginia appears to be the only one receiving consideration at the top spot.
We won’t know what the Chiefs will do with the first pick for a few months, but we now know that they are locked in to the first selection.
