This is a thread for the Addicts among us. Who among the AFC West sports the best OGs, and who sports the worst?
Vote in comments, and be sure to keep track of your votes as this series rolls on. It could be interesting to see how good you think each team is once you add up all your rankings.
The following are your depth charts at OG:
Denver Broncos: Zane Beadles, Chris Kuper, Stanley Daniels
Kansas City Chiefs: Brian Waters, Ryan Lilja, Jon Asamoah
Oakland Raiders: Bruce Campbell, Cooper Carlisle, Daniel Loper
San Diego Chargers: Kris Dielman, Louis Vasquez, Tyronne Green, Steve Schilling
My vote after the jump. Yours is invited in comments.
1. Chiefs — The Chiefs are the only team in the division that is legitimately three deep at guard. Waters may or may not be the best guard in the division at this point, but he’s been so for years. Lilja has finally filled a hole that’s been a revolving door since Will Shields, and Asamoah has played very well in his limited time. A very good lineup here.
2. Chargers — They don’t get much more reliable than Kris Dielman. The question remains at right guard, where Vasquez and Green both got plenty of playing time but neither one shined. Schilling is a rookie with future starting potential.
3. Broncos — Zane Beadles sounds like a super villian, but protected pretty well for the Broncos in 2010. The runblocking is horrid for this unit, which can’t open a hole to save their lives.
4. Raiders — Bruce Campbell is as promising a young guard as you’re going to find in the NFL, but he’s about the only thing worth writing home about in this unit.
So, assuming a 1st is 4 points, and a 4th is 1 point, this is my individual position scoreboard so far:
