There is no consensus on the Kansas City Chiefs No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft but several mock drafts are beginning to send Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel to Kansas City at No. 1. Will Joeckel become the consensus pick as the draft nears?

Get familiar with Luke Joeckel. Mock drafts have repeatedly sent Joeckel to Kansas City -- along with a quarterback here and there -- and Mel Kiper's latest is no different.

ESPN Mel Kiper Mock Draft:

1) Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel

Analysis: He has started every game at left tackle since he arrived on campus, protects the passer with what could almost be perceived as ease and has zero durability questions after three years against very good competition. Joeckel has been so good, a big question about him at this stage might be whether he's truly nasty enough, a point of pride among elite O-linemen. The kid is a gifted technician at left tackle, and the Chiefs could go with the strategy of drafting their left tackle for the next 10 years here, then taking a shot on the best QB available with the first pick in Round 2. Two needs, two picks. We'll see, but QB value at this draft slot isn't in play right now.

NFL.com Gil Brandt Mock Draft:

1. Kansas City Chiefs - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

The Chiefs, who are likely to lose offensive lineman Branden Albert to free agency, take the best player available in the draft.

3. Oakland Raiders - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

With lots of needs, the Raiders take their chances with Smith, who carries some risk, but offers a significant potential reward.

NFLNetwork:

1) Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel

ESPN Bill Williamson:

1. Kansas City: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

My take: There is no wrong answer for this pick right now. It is wide open, especially since there are no perfect position fits for the Chiefs.

SI.com:

The Chiefs, by virtue of holding the No. 1 overall pick, will have first crack at the standout Texas A&M offensive tackle.
