It’s interesting that the Chiefs have made such drastic changes so soon after releasing their first unofficial depth chart of the offseason.  Of course, Andy Reid has stated before that no one should put much stock in these depth charts and that he only releases them because the NFL tells him to.  Yet it still offers us some insight as to what the Chiefs are thinking and how the situation is progressing.

When taken as a whole, the recent moves along the line help form a picture of what the Chiefs expect from the offensive line as a whole.  With these new changes, here is how I see the Chiefs offensive line playing out:

LT: Fisher, Stephenson

LG: Grubbs, Allen/LDT 

C: Morse, Kush

RG: Fulton, Fanaika

RT: Allen, Stephenson

Practice Squad: Jarrod Pughsley

That is about as good a group that the Chiefs could hope for, short of acquiring Evan Mathis or a sudden breakout by Derek Sherrod.  All in all, it will be an improvement over the 2014 group.  And even the depth chart looks better at this point (I’d take any and every one of these players over McGlynn, Linkenbach, and Harris).  This doesn’t mean the Chiefs will have a good offensive line, but all signs indicate that it will be an improved group.
