AFC West positional rankings: How the offensive lines stack up
By Grant Tuttle
1. Kelechi Osemele, Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders have a dominant offensive line and Kelechi Osemele is a huge part of that. Widely regarded as a top ten guard in football, Osemele is extremely talented. Because of the line’s talent, there was a question as to why the offense did not move the ball more effectively. With Jon Gruden running the offense, both guards for the Raiders will need to be effective run blockers.
2. Ronald Leary, Denver Broncos
Ronald Leary played very well for the Denver Broncos. Unfortunately, his ability did not translate to the rest of the Denver offense. Leary excels on the interior and at times can look like one of the best pure blockers in football. The Broncos will need him to continue playing at a high level.
3. Dan Feeney, Los Angeles Chargers
Dan Feeney is a very middle-of-the-road kind of player. However, middle-of-the-road is much better than bad, which is what the Chargers were a couple of years ago all along the offensive line.
4. Bryan Witzmann, Kansas City Chiefs
Witzmann was the weakest link of the Chiefs offensive line last season. Witzmann struggled in picking up blitzing linebackers and was not a great run blocker. It is my hope that Parker Ehinger comes back and takes the left guard spot for the Chiefs.
