Chiefs 2013 Draft: Aggregrating Report Card Grades from Around the Web

The Kansas City Chiefs' 2013 draft class oozes with potential. But potential often presents a glass-half-full scenario, and the contents usually leave a bitter aftertaste—a healthy portion of the scouting community agrees. 

Head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey headlined NFL news after selecting offensive tackle Eric Fisher first overall. While Fisher will undoubtedly be compared to Luke Joeckel, the overwhelming consensus paints both players in a positive light. 

On Day 2, Kansas City plucked tight end Travis Kelce and running back Knile Davis from the board. Kelce is capable of becoming the best all-around tight end in the 2013 class. Likewise, Davis flashes the highest ceiling amongst his backfield peers, but injuries marred the bulk of his collegiate career. 

The Chiefs opened Day 3 with the selections of inside linebacker Nico Johnson and defensive back Sanders Commings. Johnson, who leaves Alabama with three championship rings, represents the prototypical hard-nosed run-stuffer. Commings played both cornerback and safety at Georgia, and Reid anticipates that the violent tackler will begin minicamp at free safety. 

The franchise concluded its draft by selecting a trio of tough-minded individuals: center Eric Kush, fullback Braden Wilson and defensive end Mike Catapano. 

While some applauded the front office's boldness, a number of analysts thought Kansas City turned its draft board into a craps table.
