Though slightly undersized, Tanor Bortolini brings elite athleticism to the interior offensive line. He has taken meaningful snaps at all five positions along the offensive line in college, including center where he spent most of 2023. He was recruited by Yale and Harvard due to his near-perfect GPA and 30 ACT score. He's struggled with some injuries over his time in school but his movement skills are elite and the position flexibility is invaluable.

Why this player?

The Chiefs have a need at interior offensive line in 2025, it's better to address that need now than later. Bortolini can come in and instantly replace Nick Allegretti as the swing interior offensive lineman. The Chiefs can also get a good look at him and his development as they make tough choices on Trey Smith, Creed Humphrey, and Joe Thuney who are all in need of new contracts. He profiles as depth for 2024 and as a starter for 2025.
