Chat wrap: Chiefs' interest in Dion Jordan
By Bill Williamson
Here are some highlights from our AFC West chat, which was held earlier Thursday.
Luke from Denver: If the Broncos do select a running back early, who will be the odd man out? Moreno or McGahee?
BW: I'm not sure if either one would have to go right away. But with that being said, this may be the final season in Denver for both players.
Jake from Lawrence: Why are the Chiefs looking so hard at Dion Jordan potentially being the number 1 overall pick?
BW: I think they are looking at a lot of guys and he has big talent. I know, they already have Hali and Houston. But if they think he can be a three-down guy, why not? But because he weighs just 250, Jordan may be a better fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker and the Chiefs are in pretty good shape there. So, is an interesting fit.
PT from Franklin, NC: Do you think Pryor will get a legit chance to start or does Flynn's contract make him the default starter in Oakland?
BW: Did you see Flynn's deal? $6.5 million. You don't pay a backup $6.5. Only way Pryor starts this year if Flynn is a bust in the preseason. Perhaps he will be beaten out for the second straight camp (it was Russell Wilson last year), but I think Oakland expects Flynn to keep the job.
Karl from AZ: If Fredrickson from WI is there in the 3rd round do you think SD would grab him as an eventual successor to Hardwick?
BW: They also like the kid they drafted out of Michigan last year. That's the thing about the Chargers' O-line. They need help but in Molk, Harris and Troutman, there are some potential starters in the next year or so.
