Now that every team in AFC West is done with their 2012 season, here is my first AFC West mock draft for the teams' first-round picks. We will periodically update as we move closer to the April draft:
1. Kansas City Chiefs: DL, Star Lotulelei, Utah: It’s been well documented that there are no great position fits for the Chiefs at this spot. This is a top player who would add even more young talent to this defense.
3. Oakland Raiders: DE, Damontre Moore, Texas A&M: The Raiders will fill a big defensive need no matter where they go, and right now I think Dennis Allen gets a fellow Aggie. The ceiling is high for Moore.
11. San Diego Chargers: CB, Dee Milliner, Alabama: The Chargers’ top need is tackle, but some key players went back to school so I don’t know if there is a fit here. Milliner can be a dynamic player and the Chargers will have a need. San Diego will have options, but I like Milliner here.
28. Denver Broncos: DT, Kawann Short, Purdue: The Broncos will likely take the best available defensive player. Right now, I think it is Short. Denver has gotten better at this position, but it could use some more help.
