A gritty offensive lineman, Britt could fill the swing tackle position Stephenson is leaving. This would be a direction the Chiefs decide to go if the feel comfortable with the idea of Stephenson as the starting right tackle.

Britt suffered ACL injury in 2012 that keeping him from being a potential mid-round pick. People seem to love his tenacity and attitude in addition to the flexibility he has at tackle and as a potential interior lineman. Assuming he’s healthy, there is starting upside with Britt.

Athleticism could be an issue in Reid’s scheme, but he tested well at the combine in terms of speed and quickness.

One more time, Rang on Britt.

"Slides well laterally to mirror defenders and uses his arm length and powerful shoves to keep opponents at bay. Good awareness and competitive spirit. Peels back to knock down unsuspecting defenders in pursuit of ball-carriers. Experienced left and right tackle and some view him as a potential guard convert due to his power and tenacity."

Injuries have knocked him down to somewhere in the second half of day three.
