Interior Offensive Line Positions Will Go Quickly For Chiefs In NFL Draft

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have a few perceived needs along the offensive line. Center and right guard are mentioned by a lot of folks as positions that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. Rudy Niswanger and Wade Smith are solid reserves but could be upgraded if given the opportunity.

The 2010 NFL Draft isn't incredibly deep along the interior offensive line, according to former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah.

He says Mike Iupati, guard out of Idaho, and Maurkice Pouncey, center out of Florida, lead the class of interior lineman and after that it's quite a dropoff.

To make things more difficult for the Chiefs, one of the top free agent guards, Eugene Amanore-signed with the Tennessee Titans.

From the looks of it, immediate help to the interior offensive line may not come through the 2010 NFL Draft.
