1 of 5

The 2015 NFL Draft is only a matter of hours away now and the KC Chiefs could draft almost any of the players with a first round grade and nobody would be surprised. John Dorsey shocked a lot of people in 2014 when he selected pass rusher Dee Ford in the first round even though the Chiefs already had two Pro Bowl pass rushers on the roster in Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

Experts are having a hard time agreeing on the position the KC Chiefs will draft never mind the player. I have compiled the top five players the Chiefs should draft in the first round if they are available.

Number Five

It is no secret that the KC Chiefs offensive line is terrible, and while they did add guard Ben Grubbs in a trade with the New Orleans Saints and Paul Fanaika through free agency,  they lost their best offensive lineman in center Rodney Hudson to the Oakland Raiders.

The KC Chiefs will most likely improve the offensive line at some point in the draft and if La’el Collins is still available when they pick at 18 then they should seriously consider selected him as he is my fifth best choice for the Chiefs in the first round.

"His frame belies his quick feet, an attribute that when combined with his long arms, impressive strength and aggression make him a devastating run blocker. Collins is often the quickest of LSU’s offensive linemen off the snap and he routinely drives his assignment off the line of scrimmage with pure power, creating easy running lanes for LSU’s backs. He’s surprisingly quick to the second level and has good body control to adjust to moving targets. -Courtesy of Rob Rang of CBS Sports"

Collins will make the KC Chiefs already impressive rushing attack even better. He does however struggle in pass protection but all of the issues are fixable. With proper coaching, which the Chiefs have, Collins could develop into a Pro Bowl caliber offensive tackle. If he can develop and Eric Fisher continues to improve the KC Chiefs offensive line could be a strength rather than a weakness.

Collins is the third best offensive tackle, and 18th best overall prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft according to CBS Sports. Being ranked as the 18th best prospect puts him in the middle of the first round which is within range for him to be available for the KC Chiefs.
