If you're a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars or a handful of other teams performing well below expectations, chances are you've started to look ahead to the 2013 NFL draft. We have too.
The 2013 draft features a very strong group of defensive players, notably at outside linebacker and defensive end. What this class lacks is the competition for who will be the first overall player, as that will undoubtedly be West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. But who comes next?
The first round of the 2013 NFL draft is predicted here, with the draft order based on our NFL Power Rankings and the needs of each team weighed between current performance and upcoming free agents.
