Kansas City Chiefs offensive line gets older heading into 2015

Well, yeah. That's how age tends to work...

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have had the second youngest offensive line in each of the past two seasons. For 2015, the Chiefs will be an older group.

Jimmy Kempski ranks the age of each projected starting offensive line each year and for 2015 the Chiefs are the 15th youngest offensive line with an average age of 26.2.

This is after the Chiefs second youngest last year (24.4) and second youngest the year before (25.6).

This is just a projection of who the Chiefs starting offensive linemen will be. For the Chiefs, Jimmy used Eric Fisher, Ben Grubbs, Eric Kush, Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson.

LT Eric Fisher (older than last year): This should be the same as last year with Fisher one year older.

LG Ben Grubbs (older): This was Mike McGlynn's spot last year. Grubbs is a year older than McGlynn.

C Eric Kush (younger): Kush is a few months younger than last year's starter, Rodney Hudson. Mitch Morse is another option and he's a couple of years younger than Hudson.

RG Jeff Allen (older): Jeff Allen starting would make this older than last year's starter, Zach Fulton. I believe this position is more likely to be Fulton or Fanaika, who is older than Fulton.

RT Donald Stephenson (younger): Whether it's Stephenson or Allen, they will be younger than last year's starter, Ryan Harris.
