What we’ve learned from the first Kansas City Chiefs depth chart
By Matt Conner
The carousel continues at left guard where it’s neither Parker Ehinger or Bryan Witzmann or Ryan Hunter listed as the starter at left guard. Instead it’s Cam Erving who has gone from a buy-low option to Zach Fulton’s replacement to starting option. That’s quite an ascent for the Chiefs, and if he can provide even average play at the position as a starter, he will make general manager Brett Veach look like a genius with that preseason trade from a year ago.
That said, it also leaves the Chiefs without the versatile super-sub they’ve enjoyed in recent years. Ehinger is now listed as his back-up at left guard, while Witzmann is suddenly backing up right tackle. Andrew Wylie has entered the picture along with undrafted rookie Tejan Koroma as primary back-ups. Meanwhile, Canadian import Ryan Hunter and sixth round choice Kahlil McKenzie are both with the third team. Suffice it to say, there’s a lot of sorting still to come here at the position.
