Find out who’s going to make the transition from Saturdays to Sundays with our picks below. We know the NFL mock draft is long so there’s plenty of eye candy pictures and relevant, fun links to check out as you scroll through it. Team needs were taken account into this mock and the order for the top 20 has been determined. The rest of the playoffs will change the later order and picks, but this is what we have now
1. Kansas City, Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
The Chiefs are a complete mess; especially at QB. Matt Cassel was a flop and Brady Quinn will never amount to anything. Smith got off to a ridiculous start this past season. New regimes usually mean new quarterbacks as Andy Reid takes over in K.C.
While leading his team to their inaugural Big 12 Conference victory, the senior was nearly unstoppable completing 45-of-51 passes and setting a new school record with 14 straight completions at one point. Smith finished the game with more touchdowns than incomplete passes, and he now leads all NCAA Division I FBS quarterbacks with 20 touchdowns and no interceptions on the year.
“He’s really amazing,” West Virginia quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital said of Smith. “He is just so competitive.”
Then of course, his numbers came back to Earth.
