Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Mock Draft: Should Nab Darrelle Revis

There is no doubt the Kansas City Chiefs picked the wrong year to secure the No.1 pick in the NFL Draft but all is not lost as they can still look to trade that pick for a piece that would significantly improve their team in 2013.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported that New York Jets owner Woody Johnson will explore the option of trading star corner Darrelle Revis.

The Jets may be looking to deal their prized possession because he is coming off of a torn ACL and because his contract voids after the 2014 season. Revis is expected to want a fairly substantial contract and the Jets don't appear to be in position to offer him one in the future.

The Chiefs on the other hand have plenty of cap space to offer Revis the deal he is looking for, as well as the compensation that the Jets will likely be looking for. Kansas City also has an opening at corner opposite of Brandon Flowers and a pairing of Flowers and Revis would potentially be the league's best. 

The move would not be without risks because it is impossible to know how Revis will return from his injury in 2013 and because he wants so much money, but it is a move the Chiefs should strongly consider.

I believe a trade could be consummated between the two teams and it would look something like this; the Chiefs first overall pick and fifth round choice for the Jets first round pick (ninth overall) and Revis.

The trade would go a long way towards solving the Jets cap issues and would give them the ability to draft the top rated quarterback on their board, as well as another player in the fifth round.

With Revis on board and having moved down to the ninth pick, here is a look at my newest Kansas City Chiefs seven-round mock draft.
