In 2013, the Kansas City Chiefs held the first pick of the NFL Draft. Then, they were considering an offensive tackle, looking at Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M. Both of these players have not lived up to their potential, so the Chiefs will be looking for a different player. Who will they take? Defensive ends Ezekiel Ansah and Sheldon Richardson are notable choices, or will the Chiefs go offense? Here is a look at the first round of the 2013 NFL Re-Draft:

Breakdown of the Top 10:
- Kansas City Chiefs
Original: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
New: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
Discussion: DeAndre Hopkins had a breakout season in 2015, proving himself as one of the best WRs in the NFL. The Chiefs would have a solid receiver for Alex Smith to throw the ball to.
- Jacksonville Jaguars
Original: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
New: Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
Discussion: Le’Veon Bell has quickly established himself as a threat in both the running and passing game. The Jaguars have been trying to find a go-to back since Maurice Jones-Drew, and Bell would be the perfect player.
- Miami Dolphins
Original: Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
New: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
Discussion: While Dion Jordan has been a major letdown, Ezekiel Ansah has been anything but that. With Ansah having 14.5 sacks in 2015 (3rd in the NFL), the Dolphins make this an easy choice.
- Philadelphia Eagles
Original: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
New: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
Discussion: Lane Johnson has been good so far of his career, but Kawann Short has been playing out of the world at defensive tackle. Short is the head of Carolina’s defensive line and would make a huge impact for the Eagles.
- Detroit Lions
Original: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
New: Sheldon Richardson, DE, Missouri
Discussion: With Ansah off the board, the Lions turn to another defensive end in Sheldon Richardson. While he may be the most talented player in this class, off the field issues cause him to fall to number five.
- Cleveland Browns
Original: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
New: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
Discussion: Barkevious Mingo has been ineffective, so the Browns choose to pass on him. Instead, Tyler Eifert is heading to Cleveland. Eifert improved tremendously in 2015 and is among the elite tight ends in the NFL.
- Arizona Cardinals
Original: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
New: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
Discussion: Although Tyrann Mathieu is a member of the Cardinals, there is no chance of him being available in the third round. Mathieu had Top-10 talent coming out of college, but drug charges off the field drew red flags for most teams. Mathieu has learned from his mistakes and was an All-Pro player in 2015.
- St. Louis Rams
Original: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
New: Jamie Collins, LB, Southern Miss
Discussion: Tavon Austin was not the threat at receiver that the Rams were hoping for in 2013. Instead of Austin, the Rams pick an underrated Jamie Collins with their pick. Collins has been a great all-around linebacker for the Patriots.
- New York Jets
Original: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
New: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
Discussion: Dee Milliner was supposed to be a lockdown corner to pair with All-Pro Darrelle Revis. While he hasn’t lived up to these expectations, the Jets instead pick Desmond Trufant. Having a great career with the Falcons, the Jets get a guy that would help their defense compete in the AFC East.
- Tennessee Titans
Original: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
New: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
Discussion: With all the talent in the Top-10, Lane Johnson falls all the way down to number 10 in the first round. The Titans line has been inconsistent for years, but Johnson would help improve their pass protection.
