Thoughts on McShay's mock for AFC West
By Bill Williamson
ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has offered another mock draft in an Insider piece. Let’s take a look at his choices for the AFC West teams:
1. Kansas City: Star Lotulelei, DE, Utah
My take: If Lotulelei’s heart issues are cleared, I love this pick. I’ve long had Lotulelei tabbed here before his medical issue at the combine. I love the fit and I think he’s the best prospect for the Chiefs if he is healthy.
3. Oakland: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
My take: He was the choice for me in my latest mock draft. He’d fill a need and he is a fast riser. I think it makes perfect sense.
11. San Diego: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
My take: Johnson was my choice here in my last two mock drafts. He has been a draft-season star and he’d fill the Chargers’ greatest need. It fits.
28. Denver: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
My take: I still think Notre Dame middle linebacker Manti Te’o could be in play, but I have no problem with the Rhodes choice. He is a value player at a position Denver can use help. In fact, I had Rhodes at this spot before the Te’o hunch.
