Mike Goff and his impact on the Offensive Line

The addition of 11 year veteran Mike Goff will have a huge impact on the Chiefs offensive line.  Though not a Pro Bowler Goff, along with Brian Waters will provide a solid core on the offensive line that younger players can be built around.

Adding another veteran guard allows the Chiefs to play young players at both Tackle spots, as well as Center without having a big weak spot in the line that you might have if you had young players on the whole right side (center-RG - RT).

Whether they play Barry Richardson or draft another player to play Right Tackle, Goff's veteran presence will help to cover the young player mistakes as well as provide a valuable mentor just as Brian Waters has done on the left side with Branden Albert. 

Personally I believe a veteran at Guard gives Barry Richardson a much better chance to succeed.  Richardson has all the physical ability in the world.  He was just said to be raw and needed work.  A year practicing with the team and now a veteran presence beside him should give him a chance to succeed as a starter and save the Chiefs a draft pick to spend in an area of more need.

By the time Goff and Waters retire in another couple years, our young tackles and center will be veterans and ready to pass along what they've been taught to the next generation of Guards.

Draft a Center, have Rudy Niswanger as a backup Center / Guard with Herb Taylor as the backup Tackle and I think we're sitting pretty good.

I like this move.
