2013 NFL mock draft: Geno Smith an option

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

One mock draft from CBS Sports has the Eagles taking West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith with the fourth pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Most mock drafts have the Philadelphia Eagles taking Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel, but Rob Rang of CBS Sports has the Eagles taking West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. Philadelphia finished the season 4-12 and have the fourth pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Nearly every mock draft has the Kansas City Chiefs taking Geno Smith with the top overall pick and the Eagles addressing their offensive line issues with Joeckel at the fourth pick, but Rang has the two picks reversed. He says that Joeckel is the top prospect in the draft and it is possible the Chiefs will decide to select him, if that happens what will Philadelphia do at No. 4? Rang believes the Eagles are one of the teams that can take a risk on Geno Smith:

With talented pass-catchers already in town, the Eagles could be one of the few teams who could gamble on a rookie quarterback early... and win.

Smith started the season on fire and quickly became a Heisman front-runner before fading in the second half of the season. He finished his senior year with 4,201 yards passing and 42 touchdowns to only six interceptions.
