Will AFC West teams net QB?
By Bill Williamson
There are still several quarterbacks available going into the final day of the draft and many league observers expect an early run in the fourth round.
The Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers all could draft a developmental quarterback. The Chiefs have the second pick in the fourth round and the Raiders have the third. The Chargers do not because they sent it to Arizona to draft Manti Te'o trade in the second round.
The biggest name available is USC's Matt Barkley. He would fit the Chiefs' system and Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie attended Barkley's pro day.
He could be an interesting developmental quarterback if either team decides to take a flier. Other quarterbacks available include Tyler Wilson, Ryan Nassib. Zac Dysert, Matt Scott and Tyler Bray.
The Chiefs, Raiders or Chargers could end up taking a quarterback on the final day of the draft. At this point, it’s pretty low risk.
