Don Banks SI Mock Draft
 
1 OT Luke Joeckel Texas A&M Jr. 6-6 310
Quarterback is clearly the crying need in K.C., but there's not an Andrew Luck or RGIII in sight atop this year's board. Maybe a passer gets pushed up into this spot at some point, but for now the value of the slot says you take the franchise left tackle in the first round and then try to pick off a quarterback to start the second round. Everybody knows Andy Reid likes to build his roster from the lines out, and with Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert eligible for free agency, Joeckel is the logical replacement.

4 QB Geno Smith West Virginia Sr. 6-3 220
This is where the real guess-work begins, because so much depends on whether new Eagles coach Chip Kelly believes he currently has his starting quarterback on the roster or not. Smith's talents aren't a perfect mesh for Kelly's up-tempo offense, but he's got enough mobility to get the job done, and his pocket-passing skills are NFL ready. We know quarterbacks get pushed up by need, but the Eagles defense needs so much help that Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner could be tough to pass on.


7 QB Matt Barkley USC Sr. 6-2 230
The Cardinals have other options to fix their quarterback issues, perhaps by trading for Alex Smith or Matt Flynn. But if their division rivals in San Francisco or Seattle won't play ball with them, the Cardinals might talk themselves into Barkley, who was presumed to be a slam-dunk top five pick in 2012, had he not opted to return to USC for what proved to be a damaging senior season. Some don't consider Barkley a first-round talent any more, but let's see what happens once the NFL digs into his tape.


8 QB Mike Glennon N.C. State Sr. 6-6 220
This pick doesn't reflect where Glennon's stock stands today, but where I think it's headed. Granted, Buffalo's need at quarterback is driving this projection of Glennon cracking the top 10. If the Bills don't find him intriguing, he very well may not make the first round. New Bills head coach Doug Marrone probably loves his collegiate QB, Syracuse's Ryan Nassib, but he's more likely to earn a second-to-mid-round grade. Just got a hunch that Glennon's size and arm strength will grow on NFL personnel men as the draft approaches.

I really don't get shit like this. It's ok to take a QB at 4 7 8 but not 1. SMH

This is total and unmitigated dumbassery.

There are no Lucks or or RGIIIs in this draft, so #1 overall is too high for QB.

Meanwhile, Geno Smith has mobility and pocket passing skills are NFL ready.

Can one be more stupid?

htismaqe 01-27-2013 09:57 AM

He not only put Geno at #4, he OPENLY admitted that Geno doesn't even fit Kelly's offense.

Absolutely retarded.

I don't get it either.

You pass up the best available player at the position you need the most just because of the draft order?

At some point you have to believe in your coaching staff's ability to teach a guy what he needs to do to be successful considering he already has the physical skills.

Is there some unwritten rule that a qb has to be once in a decade prospect to go first overall?

htismaqe 01-27-2013 10:23 AM

Don't worry about it. Our coach and GM have seen 1st-hand Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, and Donovan McNabb.

We are not taking Joeckel.

Brainiac 01-27-2013 10:27 AM

If only the Chiefs didn't have such a high draft choice. Then they could take the player they really need. /mockdrafters

I've said this before.

These national media types have no real clue about the roster and the needs of the Chiefs.

They spend about as much time covering the Chiefs as I do watching soccer.

The "logical" thing to do would be get Albert re-signed and draft a QB.

But these idiots don't have any real idea how good Albert actually is.

Only in the eyes of the idiot reporters and mocksters.

QB has gone first overall ten out of the last twelve years.


2012: Andrew Luck
2011: Cam Newton
2010: Sam Bradford
2009: Matt Stafford
2007: Jamarcus Russell
2005: Alex Smith
2004: Eli Manning
2003: Carson Palmer
2002: David Carr
2001: Michael Vick

And the importance of the position has only gone up since the 2004 pass interferrence rule change/enforcement.

And one could seriously make the argument that Matt Ryan should have gone #1 instead of #3 in 2008.

And Geno Smith is, IMO, a better prospect at the same level than every guy above but one.

Don Banks is a retard.

Joeckel isn't Willie roaf or Orlando Pace so we can't take him

Thig Lyfe 01-27-2013 12:26 PM

I hope his family and friends all beat him to death with bats covered in barbed wire for writing such a terrible thing

Chris Meck 01-27-2013 12:51 PM

Dumb mock. It's like they've forgotten the last 20 drafts all because Luck and RG3 came out last year. And you can take a guy at #4 but not #1?!

Stupid.

And Star Lotulelei didn't play in the Senior Bowl, so we can't take him either.

Guess we're stuck, huh?

There is now....I guess.

Before the league was as QB-centric as it is now, QBs were going 10 spots ahead of where they would've.

Now that the QB is the single most important position on the field (and it's not even close), evidently it's folly to do what teams have been doing for the last decade+

I'm about to give up on humanity at large simply because of the staggering idiocy of everyone that talks about the draft these days. This mock from Banks is truly the height of stupidity. It takes every single thing I've bitched about coming from truefans and puts it into one article.

From the "let Albert walk" angle to the "Not Luck...but good enough to take at #4", this couldn't be a better example of national ****wittery. All he needed to do was suggest franchising Albert and moving him to guard for the Mona Lisa of dumbshit draft experts.
