3. How will the new offensive tackles fare?

Let's not forget that the primary focus of general manager Brett Veach this offseason was to reinvent the offensive tackle position. Shortly after winning another Super Bowl, the team went to work and allowed Andrew Wylie to find a new home with the Washington Commanders and Orlando Brown Jr. to sigin with the Cincinnati Bengals.

In response, Veach signed Jawaan Taylor to a big-money deal in free agency, added Donovan Smith on a one-year deal in May, and drafted Wanya Morris out of Oklahoma with their third-round selection. Suddenly, the only holdovers at the position were rookies themselves not too long ago in Lucas Niang and Prince Tega Wanogho.

lineThe Chiefs' new tackles didn't get to play too much in the opening salvo of the preseason, but both players are also savvy veterans who will know how to get right when they need it. On the flip side, the Chiefs gave Morris more playing than anyone else at any postion in that entire game with 72 percent of all snaps on both sides of the lne.

Can Morris get the best of Smith on the left side? Will Taylor look like the upgrade he was brought in to be? Does Niang offer anything at this stage? Veach's vision for a remade position has paid off in the past.
