Why LT might be a bigger need that RT


A point I always harp on is playing guys out of position. if you play any chess you know you can't switch a pawn and rook; it just won't work. Positions in football are, for the most part, the same way. When people complain that Branden Albert is not playing up to expectations, I always defend him as a victim of poor placement. Albert was a great LG in college. We go draft him and wonder why hes not a phenom at LT. Well it just isn't his position. Given this, I'm thinking that when Brain Waters is gone, the natural replacement is Albert. I'm starting to favor putting Waters on the market as soon as now so we can offload his contract and make room for a young Albert at his natural position. Waters does not seem happy here and is entering the twilight of his career. He certainly still has some market  value so he is a perfect trade candidate. For now RT appears filled at least adequately with O'callaghan and Ndukwe so unless we pull a player for player trade (Waters for good LT), which has become rather uncommon, then we are left with a hole at LT.

Next offseason might see the chiefs looking for a LT and C to round out a good line.
