The Chiefs will have a lot of work to do on their offensive line during the offseason and could have to replace several starters. The future is even more complicated with Mitchell Schwartz battling a back injury and Eric Fisher suffering a torn Achilles. There are a handful of offensive line prospects in the 2021 NFL draft, and several of them will be showcasing their talents at the Senior Bowl.
There are a lot of big men who could help their draft stock at the Senior Bowl. Spencer Brown from Northern Iowa may have the highest upside of any tackle in the draft, and the chance for him to compete against the tougher competition will be a true litmus test. The Northern Iowa product is a dark horse to be drafted in the first round.
Dillon Radunz was highly touted after the 2019 season, but a one-game season and concerns about his frame and consistency have his stock trending downward. The Senior Bowl is an opportunity for Radunz to prove himself and potentially work himself back into the first-round conversation.
Creed Humphrey has been considered the top center in the 2021 NFL draft, and likely would have been the top center off the board in 2020 had he declared. Humphrey might have the name recognition, but do not sleep on Kentucky’s Drake Jackson who may give the Oklahoma Sooner a run for the top center spot.
There are several guard prospects to keep an eye on. Trey Smith has elite potential but has some medical history that may scare teams off. There are some big fans of Notre Dame’s Aaron Banks, but I’m less convinced that Banks has the athleticism to make it in the NFL. Ben Cleveland is one of my favorite prospects in the class, a hulk of a man who excels in the run game, but Cleveland will need to have a solid week to keep himself as a day two prospect. Quinn Meinerz could be this year’s small school prospect who makes a name for himself, and I’m excited to see him match up against the tougher competition in Mobile.
