Debating Who Were the Biggest Reaches in the 2013 NFL Draft

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterMay 9, 2013

We're talking biggest reaches. According to NFL draft 101, it's basically taking a player way earlier than he's worth.

One of the biggest "reaches" in recent memory has to be a guy named Tim Tebow. He was drafted in the first round, 25th overall by the Denver Broncos in 2010. Could they have gotten him later? You make the call.

Another classic "reach" happened back in 1999. The Saints and Mike Ditka traded away six of their 1999 draft picks to the Redskins for Ricky Williams. The highlight of that relationship was Ditka posing with Williams, wearing a wedding dress on a magazine cover. Not good.

Most recently, the Jaguars took a punter in the third round of the 2012 draft. Yes, they do punt a lot. But don't you think Jacksonville had more immediate needs to fill in the third round?

Check out the video above as Matt Miler, Josh Zerkle and I try to predict this year's version of the biggest reaches in to come out of the NFL draft.

Let us know in the comments below who you think are going to be the biggest reaches.
