Names for next season that the KC Chiefs can consider at left tackle
With so many teams likely to grab linemen in this draft, could there be value in finding an offensive lineman in next year’s draft? Perhaps.
I am really not intrigued by the names I’ve seen mentioned at the end of the first round this year. Could the Chiefs be in a position to nab someone next season?
- Rasheed Walker (Penn State) – Already has 22 career starts at left tackle. Good size and power. With a mostly normal offseason and full 2021 season ahead of us, will be interesting to see how he performs.
- Wanya Morris (Oklahoma) – Transferring from Tennessee to Oklahoma, Morris is the type of offensive tackle Chiefs fans dream of. Good size and really athletic. Good enough to move Trey Smith to guard at UT, Morris is going to get an opportunity in the Sooners offense to show his skill set in that offense. Already has 19 career starts.
- Zion Nelson (Miami) – Third name on the list of 2022 draft prospects. With 20 career starts under his belt at left tackle, he has seen many good football ACC linemen for the Hurricanes.
There are plenty of ways the Kansas City Chiefs can address their offensive line issues, and much like Rome wasn’t built in a day, the Chiefs are not going to overhaul their offensive line in one offseason. Sometimes, it takes planning and patience.
