Best case / worst case with the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line

Let's start off by saying that the Kansas City Chiefs have played just two preseason games so this is way too early to be figuring out the best case and worst case scenarios for the 2013 season. But whatever, this is a sports blog. It's what we do. With that, I present to you the best and worst case scenarios for the Chiefs offensive line.

The big picture

Best case: Multiple Pro Bowlers.

Worst case: They can't pass block.

Jon Asamoah and Branden Albert would be your Pro Bowlers. My confidence level in those two is high and from there I have varying levels of confidence. The three other players either haven't played at a high level -- yet -- or are playing their first season.

Branden Albert

Best case: Albert plays as well as he has in the last two years. In the conversation for a Pro Bowl.

Worst case: Injury. His skill level probably isn't likely to decline.

Jon Asamoah

Best case: Pro Bowl guard.

Worst case: Injury. His skill level isn't likely to decline.

Rodney Hudson

Best case: Stays healthy and in the line-up for 16 games.

Worst case: Eric Kush, who Andy Reid drafted and likes, replaces him before the end of the year.

Jeff Allen

Best case: Improves upon last year and fends off competition at guard for 16 games this year.

Worst case: Can't hang onto the starting job, replaced by Geoff Schwartz or someone else.

Eric Fisher

Best case: Stays healthy and starts 16 games.

Worst case: He's just not very good and injuries wreck his rookie year.
