3. Kelechi Osemele
While it’s not exactly exciting to watch offensive linemen on game day, Osemele could prove to be a huge steal this offseason. He’s a former All-Pro and due to a rough 2019, was practically left for dead on the open market. He found a home with the defending champions and could very well cement himself as a starter at left guard.
As mentioned above, offensive linemen aren’t the most compelling to keep an eye on, but if Osemele plays well and keeps Patrick Mahomes upright, Chiefs fans will have a good feeling about this offensive line moving forward.
2. Rashad Fenton
This could also be titled as “Whoever plays opposite Charvarius Ward“, but since Rashad Fenton will probably win that job, I just put him down. With Bashaud Breeland missing the first four games of the 2020 season, the Chiefs are forced into an unideal situation at cornerback.
Fenton surprised us all as a sixth round rookie last year and showed that he could hold his own in the secondary, but can he do it as a starter and on a weekly basis? That remains to be seen.
A lot of eyes will be on Fenton come Thursday night to see if he can do his part against the Texans wide receivers. If he struggles, remember that it’ll only be a temporary thing until Breeland comes back. Hopefully he does a good job and we barely even notice that Breeland is gone.
