How interesting would it be of the Chiefs replaced the former Virginia tackle/guard Branden Albert with Virginia tackle Morgan Moses?

Moses is an athlete who one would think would be appealing to the Chiefs. His size in addition to his ability to move quickly should work well in Reid’s scheme. Big guys who can hit the edge quickly are not easy to find.

There are some concerns about Moses’ ability to maintain his size and his quickness, in addition to some technique issues.

Stephens and Dane Brugler on Moses.

"Moses is the definition of a “dancing bear” with his mammoth size and nimble feet. He likes to use his limbs to get his hands on defenders and take them wherever he wants, but needs to continue and refine his technique. If he continues to develop while staying in shape, Moses will be an attractive blocker for the next level."

Moses is considered a late first round or second round prospect.
