#248: 2021 Dash To The Draft Divisional Tour (AFC West with Carl Dumler)

1. Even before new GM George Paton arrived, the Broncos have quietly built a very promising young roster with talent on both sides of the ball. That said, the QB position remains a glaring hole of uncertainty five years after Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset. Based on the sample size so far, it would take the utmost of miracles for Drew Lock to become a franchise signal-caller. But based on where they currently sit at #9 overall, the only possible way for the Broncos to find a potential long-term answer at QB in this draft is to trade up. If they are unable to do so, should they trade back from nine and start to build a long-term war chest of draft capital so they can go after a QB in one of the next 2 or 3 drafts?

2. When it comes to the Chargers, this draft should be about building around their new franchise QB Justin Herbert. They began in free agency by upgrading their OL, most notably by signing Corey Linsley. That said, they still have some issues at tackle and the weapons around Herbert may be very good, but not as great as the ones the Chiefs have. Therein lies their dilemma in the first round. Do you prioritize the offensive line or the skill position weaponry if you’re Tom Telesco and Brandon Staley?

3.  In two years of the Mike Mayock/Jon Gruden partnership, their draft classes, at least so far, have been underwhelming to put it kindly. Do you think this is a make-or-break draft for Mayock and/or Gruden?

4. As Super Bowl LV demonstrated, no matter how great your QB is, football is won up front. After their patchwork OL got manhandled by the Bucs, the Chiefs have focused like a laser beam on improving their offensive line as they signed G Joe Thuney to a mega-deal in free agency plus getting Kyle Long out of retirement. However, due to the double release of Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz, their tackle situation is currently one of the worst in the league, at least on paper with the unproven Lucas Niang and Super Bowl turnstile Mike Remmers the projected starters.  Do you believe it’s OT or bust for Kansas City in round one?
