AFC Mailbags: Chiefs, Jags, Raiders, Colts

It’s Saturday morning, and that means’s NFL writers are opening their mailbags and answering questions from readers. Let’s start off the morning with some notes from the AFC…

  • Center is probably the Chiefs biggest need, but Adam Teicher says that doesn’t mean the organization will select an offensive lineman with their first-round pick. The team could instead pursue a veteran, and then address that future of the position in next year’s draft.
  • If the Jaguars don’t select Amari Cooper or Kevin White with their first pick, Mike DiRocco believes the team will hold off on selecting a receiver until the middle rounds. The writer suggests Tyler LockettPhillip Dorsett, and Jamison Crowder as potential targets.
  • Meanwhile, DiRocco lists running back, interior offensive line, free safety and linebacker as other positions of need for the Jaguars.
  • The Raiders brought in some new faces via free agency, including center Rodney Hudson, safety Nate Allen, middle linebacker Curtis Lofton and defensive tackle Dan Williams. Despite this, Bill Williamson writes that he wishes the organization took “full advantage” of having the second-most cap room in the league.
  • The Colts are fans of the running back depth in the draft, and Mike Wells says it’s “a necessity” for the organization to select a young player to pair with veteran Frank Gore.
