If you have turned on the TV or looked on the Internet you are certain to hear rumors of what the Kansas City Chiefs are going to do with the first pick. We live in a speculative society and the NFL stays status-quo in that mentality.The fact of the matter is that we love to follow compelling stories. Whether it is a player with bad medical reports trying to keep hopes of playing in the NFL alive or a "5 Star" quarterback fighting off critics that his arm is too weak to be a starter in the NFL, this NFL draft is full of newsworthy stories.Here are the 10 most compelling stories destined to make headlines leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft.
