O-LINE: Although a quarterback has been chosen with the No. 1 overall pick in 10 of the past 12 NFL Drafts, that trend may change this year. A pair of tackles - LUKE JOECKEL of Texas A&M and ERIC FISHER of Central Michigan - are among the candidates to be the top choice in 2013.

Since 1967, only three offensive linemen (all tackles) have been chosen with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft - Pro Football Hall of Famer RON YARY (1968), ORLANDO PACE (1997) and JAKE LONG (2008).

AWESOME AGGIE: Texas A&M T LUKE JOECKEL is likely to hear his name called early in Round 1 of the 2013 NFL Draft. If the Kansas City Chiefs select Joeckel, he would become the first Texas A&M player in history to be chosen No. 1 overall.

He would also join four Aggie players who have been chosen in the top five of an NFL Draft since 1967, including Pro Bowl LB VON MILLER, who was the No. 2 overall pick in 2011 by Denver.

GOING GLOBAL: At least eight players who hail from beyond the borders of the United States may be selected in the 2013 NFL Draft this week, including several who are likely to be chosen in the first round.

Top defensive end prospect BJOERN WERNER, a Berlin, Germany native, played football for the first time at age 15, but you'd never have known it watching him play at Florida State.

Werner was a unanimous All-America selection in 2012, also earning ACC Defensive Player of the year honors. His 23.5 career sacks rank fourth in school history.

After a brief basketball career at Marist College in New York, tackle MENELIK WATSON, a native of Manchester, England, tried football for the first time at Saddleback Junior College in California and found his calling.

Watson quickly earned a scholarship to Florida State, where he was a teammate of Werner's in 2012. Despite playing in just his second season of organized football, Watson started 12 of 13 games last year and was recognized as an All-ACC honorable mention performer by the league's coaches and media.

Estonia native MARGUS HUNT was a gold medalist in the shot put and discus at the 2006 World Junior Championships before moving to Texas to train with renowned Southern Methodist track coach Dave Wollman. But by the time Hunt arrived, SMU decided to drop its men's track program. To help defray the costs of attending college, Hunt applied his athletic talents as a defensive end and quickly earned a football scholarship.

A regular contributor for the Mustangs each of the past three seasons, Hunt led the team with eight sacks as a senior. He also displayed an uncanny ability to contribute on special teams, setting the NCAA all-time record for blocked field goals/PATs (17 total).

Defensive end ZIGGY ANSAH, a Ghana native, was a walk-on at Brigham Young and played football for the first time when he suited up for the Cougars in 2010. After two seasons as a reserve, Ansah earned a starting job early in the 2012 season, finishing with 4.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss.

Defensive tackle JESSE WILLIAMS, who was a member of two National Championship teams at Alabama, hails from Brisbane, Australia and grew up playing rugby. He came to love football as a teenager and traveled all the way to Arizona Western Community College, playing two seasons there before transferring to powerhouse Alabama and immediately earning a starting role.

Track and field star LAWRENCE OKOYE, who competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and never played organized football at any level, has become a fast-rising NFL prospect at defensive end following a head-turning performance at the Super Regional Combine at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas earlier this month.

Okoye, who holds the all-time discus record for Great Britain, impressed with a 4.84 40-yard dash time in Dallas and standout performances in other drills despite his 6-6, 300-pound frame. He's also an exemplary student and has deferred his admission to Oxford University, where he plans to study law in the future.

Jamaican-born TREVARDO WILLIAMS moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut at age 10 and went on to star at linebacker for nearby UConn. Williams is an impact pass rusher who totaled 30.5 career sacks for the Huskies, the most in school history.

Oklahoma's TOM WORT, who hails from Crawley, England, moved to America at age 14 and eventually settled in Texas. He went on to become a three-year starter at linebacker for the Sooners, totaling 190 career tackles and earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors in 2011.

MR. IRRELEVANT: The Indianapolis Colts will have the honor of selecting this year's "Mr. Irrelevant" - a tongue-in-cheek title bestowed annually upon the last player chosen in the NFL Draft - with the 254th pick.

Over the past 37 years, Irrelevant Week, Inc. has donated more than $1 million to charitable organizations in the Southern California community. In 2013, the organization has named Special Olympics Southern California as their charitable recipient. Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.

Irrelevant Week was founded by PAUL SALATA, a former NFL player and Southern California businessman.
