Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
Despite having already signed Austin Blythe from the Los Angeles Rams this offseason, the Chiefs still have a need at center, and Landon Dickerson could fill that role nicely.
With Blythe only signing with K.C. on a one-year deal, Dickerson could provide a long-term solution for Kansas City at that position. A great pass protector, he is exactly the kind of mauler the Chiefs would want in front of Mahomes.
At 6’6, 325 lbs Dickerson is a massive human being. Highly rated for his strength, he is the number one center available in the draft according to both Mel Kiper and PFF. He allowed just one sack on over 800 pass block attempts during his last two seasons at Alabama, and had an overall grade of 91.3 according to PFF, the second highest among centers.
As an added bonus, Dickerson has also showed great versatility having played in every offensive line position at one point over his college career.
There is an injury cloud over Dickerson, however, after he tore his ACL in the SEC title game against Florida last season. His health is the biggest concern, but should his recovery go according to plan, he would certainly be a valuable piece on the offensive line.
