Positions KC Chiefs need to address in 2021 NFL Draft
3. Offensive Line
Even though the Chiefs have made considerable changes to their offensive line over the offseason, they shouldn’t be content just yet. They signed Joe Thuney, Kyle Long, and Austin Blythe in free agency, traded for Orlando Brown last week, and drafted Creed Humphrey on Day 2 yet there’s still a need for depth here and Day 3 is the perfect place to get it.
If the Chiefs decide to add another tackle, the best names available are Stone Forsythe (Florida), Jaylon Moore (Western Michigan), Josh Ball (Marshall), Brenden Jaimes (Nebraska), and James Hudson (Cincinnati). If the Chiefs decide to add another interior offensive linemen, Trey Smith (Tennessee), Deonte Brown (Alabama), Royce Newman (Ole Miss), and Jared Hocker (Texas A&M) are names to watch.
The Chiefs were smart to take Humphrey on Day 2 even after they signed Blythe because Blythe is only signed to a one-year deal. Humphrey can be a starter from the jump and Blythe now simply provides depth to the position or could slot in somewhere else along the line. I can’t get over how good of a value pick that was for Kansas City.
Be that as it may, the Chiefs still need to find some depth for their o-line so that we don’t see another situation like the Super Bowl play out again.
