The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line was a weakness, possibly the biggest weakness, in 2015.
Free agency and the draft have brought a few new faces to the unit. Going into training camp, where does it stand now?
With Chris Clark this week, I dug into the changes and the current look of the offensive line. First, though, we also took a few minutes to remember Buddy Ryan. Ryan was a force to be acknowledged and the Chiefs have a significant link to the iconic defensive coordinator.

The draft, together with free agency, have brought two players to Kansas City that are likely to be in the final group that make the 53-man roster.
As it stands today, I expect eight offensive linemen to make the final cut going into the season. Nine will likely be too many, given the needs at other positions that can contribute to special teams. That could always change as camp and the preseason progresses, but in reality, injuries and veteran cuts are the only likely reasons for more than eight linemen Week 1.
