Round 4, Pick 19

The offensive tackle position is one that should be a strength given that they used a number one overall pick to select Eric Fisher in the 2013 NFL Draft, but Fisher has struggled in his two years in the league and its time to bring in competition.

Donald Stephenson looked to be a promising young offensive tackle for the Chiefs, but he was suspended for four games of the 2014 season for violating the NFL’s rules for performance enhancing drugs. He has been in the dog house ever since, and his situation with the Chiefs is a big question mark at this point.

Daryl Williams is another four year starter in college which is a theme among the offensive lineman I have selected in my mock draft. Center Reese Dismukes, and guard A.J. Cann were both also four year starters. I like offensive lineman that are experienced, and can come in ready to compete.

"Williams looks the part with excellent body thickness throughout and an anchor to hold his ground. He is surprisingly quick off the ball and has the flexibility and balance to turn and seal defenders, without relying on his best assets – his natural mass and strength. Williams has heavy hands which he uses to latch onto and control opponents. He keeps his legs churning through contact as a drive-blocker, generating movement at the point of attack. -Courtesy of Dane Brugler, and Rob Rang of CBS Sports"

I would not feel comfortable with Williams starting as a rookie, but I fully believe he can develop into a good offensive tackle. He will also push the starting tackles to continue to work and earn their jobs. Competition is important in the NFL, and the Chiefs are in a position that they can push players to earn their jobs, rather than just handing it to them. Depth should not be as big of an issue in 2015 as it has been historically for the Chiefs.

Williams is listed as the 11th best offensive tackle, and the 105th best overall prospect according to CBS Sports.
