3. Solidify the Left Tackle Position

The biggest remaining question for the 2024-25 roster is who will play left tackle. Last year's starter, Donovan Smith, is still a free agent while the team hasn't yet committed to 2023 third-round pick Wanya Morris to fill the role.

It's possible Morris gets the nod, though he wasn't spectacular when he filled in for Smith near the end of last season. He was serviceable, but I'd feel better about the offensive line as a whole if some competition was brought in.

I believe the Chiefs may draft the left tackle of the future in the first round and use Morris as more of a depth piece, though it's unclear at this point.

To Morris' credit, he certainly showed promise that he could be that left tackle for years to come. His tape was inconsistent, though he had enough positive plays to give me optimism about his long-term outlook.

If the Chiefs believe Morris is the guy, I'll trust their opinion. That being said, the lack of public commitment to the third-round pick does give me pause.

Whichever direction Kansas City decides to go, they'll need a quality left tackle to ensure the talented AFC pass rushers can't attack Mahomes' blind side with regularity.
