Get ready for our early predictions on the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line. They will certainly be changing things up as training camp goes on but for the first two days of camp this has been the Chiefs first team offensive line:
LT Eric Fisher
LG Ben Grubbs
C Eric Kush
RG Jeff Allen
RT Donald Stephenson
Fisher and Grubbs seem locked in at their positions. Kush has consistently been the top center so I'm guessing he's the guy at center. Wouldn't they want to get rookie Mitch Morse all the reps they could get if he were a strong possibility there?
The right guard battle has a ton of competition. Given Allen's starting experience I'm pretty happy with him being there when healthy. From there you have last year's starter Zach Fulton, rookie Mitch Morse and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Those three players are all on the second team with Morse at center.
Right tackle should be Donald Stephenson. I'm not sure who is beating him out there.

Yes, that's Paul Fanaika, who signed a three-year, $8 million deal in March, playing on the third team. That's not how we envisioned that working out.
