3. Orlando Brown

It is a bit frustrating how much the Kansas City Chiefs were able to revamp the offensive line. There was a legitimate weakness on the Chiefs that the LA Chargers could have exploited and the Chiefs' front office did spectacularly in making that area of weakness an area of strength.

We already touched on Joe Thuney and that impact he is going to have on the offensive line. The other huge addition that the Chiefs made was Orlando Brown, trading four picks in total (including no. 31) to the Baltimore Ravens.

Brown is going to start and protect Patrick Mahomes' blindside. Brown is a really good young tackle that is only going to get better and is someone who Charger fans wanted to trade for before he was dealt to Kansas City (we are more than happy with Rashawn Slater).

Brown and Thuney are not the only additions and overall as the offensive line is completely rebuilt and really talented. Kansas City landed Creed Humphrey in the third round, which was huge. Humphrey projects to be a really solid interior offensive lineman and is going to be one of the best third-round picks in this year's draft.

They somehow landed Trey Smith, who was projected to go on day two, in the sixth round and also brought in Austin Blythe and Kyle Long. The offensive line is going to be really good and is fairly deep.

Next. 4 Chargers who are playing for their next contract in 2021. dark

And it is headlined by Orlando Brown and Joe Thuney.
