Ranking AFC West teams in NFL draft

By Steve Corkran
Monday, April 29th, 2013 at 2:30 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Every other team in the AFC West these days is chasing the Denver Broncos, a team many view as a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
The Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers combined for an 0-6 mark against the Broncos last season, but they outdrafted the Broncos and gained some much needed confidence moving forward.
Here’s a team-by-team look at how the four AFC West teams fared, from best to worst:

1. Chargers – New general manager Tom Telesco and first-year coach Mike McCoy made a great first impression by finding sure-fire starters with their top three selections: offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, linebacker Manti Te’o and wide receiver Keenan Allen. There’s work to do yet, but the aforementioned trio qualifies as a nice start.

OT D.J. Fluker
LB Manti Te’o
WR Keenan Allen
CB Steve Williams
DE Tourek Williams
QB Brad Sorensen

2. Raiders – It’s hard to go wrong when you enter a draft with as many glaring needs as the Raiders had this year. Sure enough, the Raiders landed four players that likely will be starting by season’s end, at the latest: cornerback D.J. Hayden, offensive tackle Menelik Watson, linebacker Sio Moore and one of two tight ends selected in the sixth round. This draft class becomes one for the ages if quarterback Tyler Wilson, a fourth-round flier, develops into a long-time starter.

CB D.J. Hayden
OT Menelik Watson
LB Sio Moore
QB Tyler Wilson
TE Nick Kasa
RB Latavius Murray
TE Mychal Rivera
DT Stacy McGee
WR Brice Butler
DE Davis Bass

3. Chiefs – Finding a starting left offensive tackle makes any draft a raging success. That’s about all the Chiefs can count upon with a draft class littered with questionable selections. Tight end Travis Kelce and running back Knile Davis figure to make the roster and contribute right away.

OT Eric Fisher
TE Travis Kelce
RB Knile Davis
LB Nico Johnson
CB Sanders Commings
C Eric Kush
FB Braden Wilson
DE Mike Catapano

4. Broncos – It’s difficult to find anything to get excited about with this draft class. Williams might develop into a solid run stopper. Ball might be the lead back the Broncos desire. Dysert might be the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. So much potential, too many question marks for the Broncos to feel too good about this year’s bounty.

DT Sylvester Williams
RB Montee Ball
CB Kayvon Webster
DE Quanterus Smith
WR Tavarres King
OT Vinston Painter
QB Zac Dysert

    Aus will get a fair shot. If he performs he’ll have a job. Simple as that.

  • The_Judge37

    Rivera Looks better using his hands. But he isn’t very elusive as a runner. I saw Kasa break more tackles and he ran .10 seconds faster in the 40. I like Kasa but i don’t know if a former DE will ever develop reliable hands.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Hayden may be the slot guy starting off I dont know if he can come in and start right away like a C-Wood.

  • dr_robert

    Ausberry only had 20 catches his senior year.

    He was only drafted as a TE project.

    He’s not that good of a reciever.

    why not play ausberry at receiver, his position out of college

    big and fast with good hands, what am i missing?

    ==========

    the fast part.
    —–

    He ran a 4.48 40. It’s his route running that’s the problem.

    ===============

    I have to look where he separated from anybody on any reception.

    he did run over somebody v. the Dolphins, though.

    a lot of SC WR’s havent panned out…Aus is just another in a long line….hopefully, he can distinguish himself in camp

  • rediaR

    Jenkins was the odd man out last year. Did he play the slot?

    Oh boy. The fair chance thing again. Pryor, ausberry, and Taiwan. Poor guys. It’s just not fair.
    What do u think they’re doing in practices. NOT getting looked at?
    Ausberry hasn’t EARNED the starting spot.
    More likely, he has UNEARNED it.

    I just think there is a biased among the new regime.

    If Hayden, our first pick, and a guy Reggie was gonna draft third, can’t walk in and start on a 4-12 team in front of bets who had lost their spots, then it’s a bad pick.

    Remember the pick the Jets made a few years back, the guy from Boise st. Jets took him first and he started in the slot. DB’s like C-Wood and Revis dont come around very often. Guys that can step in and start day one look at the guy fro LSU in ARI he got toasted pretty much his whole rookie season but made his name as a ST’S player.

    He’s been on IR most of his career. The last time we saw him play he was dropping balls like crazy and running bad routes (fits right in). It’s possible other guys can step into return duties.

    I’m not saying he will be cut, but if it happened it wouldn’t be a shock.

    keyshawn johnson was pretty good, steve smith did well for the giants,

    i’m pretty sure the reason others didn’t pan out is not because they went to usc

    i’m pretty sure there are plenty of receivers from plenty of schools that didn’t pan out

  • The_Judge37

    We need at least two instant starters, deserving not by default, out of this draft for it to be a success. Hayden is definetly expected to be one of them even though we could’ve gone through this year without drafting a CB. I hope Watson is the 2nd but likely Sio.

    always have TAPE to back up any accusation of “hands of stone”. or “separation smack”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH-GspDtxeo

    i believe he’s going to be a blocker, and Rivera will be the receiving TE
    ——-

    Looks like a lot of DHBody catches is stead of attacking the ball with his hands

    ===========

    1. did he catch the ball
    2. did he separate
    3. did he score

    the end – lets see him in action – but i understand your concern – 10 years of losing = they cant make a pick to save their lives, etc.
    ———-

    Don’t get so defensive. I’m just pointing out what i noticed. DHB made catches too, doesn’t mean he’s got hands and can seperate.

    =====================

    “Kasa is a very solid athlete and shows his willingness to do what he is asked to for his team. He was moved to TE 8 games into his Junior season from DE so he still has somewhat of a learning curve. As a former DE, he will have the instincts in both blocking and in route running and can use that to his advantage. Kasa is a solid blocker,”

    ” As far as receiving goes he can be a solid receiver as he has the quickness and speed to go down the seam and create mis-matches with LB’s and also uses his speed as an advantage on curl routes as his speed will cause the LB to freeze due to the deep threat”

    needs to improve his footwork to show he can create separation – just a blocking TE

    ———————-
    This is my point. I just didn’t like 2 tight ends out of 3 picks. I realize they were low picks, but we can’t afford to waste picks either. I felt like there was better talent out there at that point. And I don’t like a TE that can’t separate. But some reports seem to say he can. And others say he can’t. I guess we will find out. And yes, as a raider fan for 40 years I am suspicious of any draft pick, especially from the last 15 years. But I liked this draft overall and I’m fairly confident Reggie know Wth he is doing (100% he knows more than me). So we will see. He certainly maneuvered better than any GM in our division. We will see how the talent plays out.

  • dr_robert

    East– yeah there’s a bias. The team sucked.

    New guys come on and don’t want their careers depending in the guys who got the last guy fired.

    It’s not that he can’t, it’s just that you want him to be prepared more mentally than physically at this point. The Raiders have a lot invested in this guy. Physically and emotionally he seems fine. But there is no need to rush him out there. Ease him in, and let him get comfortable and confident and all should be good….

    I think all 3 could start. But our line backing is actually pretty deep right now, so Sio may have the hardest time getting out there, at least every down. Probably start as a passing situational back. Lets not forget Wilson. He may just pull a Wilson from last year. Same names same situation? We’ll see I guess.

  • rediaR

    I remember plenty of games where Ford was watching it at a bar next to me drinking Pina Coladas and having strippers write their number on his walking boot. I’m not saying he will be cut, but it’s a reasonable possibility.

  • alex7

    Dr. Robert

    didn’t Jesus call some Pharisees “Snakes. You brood of vipers. How can you escape damnation to hell?” Sounds like he was hating on something they were doing.

    Kinda hated the money-lenders in church as well.

    And if Jesus and God are like wave/particle relationship of light (same thing, two formats), God/Jesus hates divorce among other things.

    Righteous anger/hate seems to have a place there. Maybe not hating the person, but certainly things. I enjoy your intellect on here.

    Yea, ford had that one terrible preseason game. But he was playing much better the next game, but then he got hurt. Late first half I think? Made a couple of good catches that game before he went down. I only remember because like you, I was disgusted by the game before and was watching closely to make sure it was an abhoration. It seemed to be.

  • dr_robert

    I’ve pointed out before that all the wrs Reggie has brought in last season and so far this season have been tall guys.

    Except for kick returners.

    I think ford is a KR only. And there’s no guarantee he will be the same after the injury.

    He’s a great returner but a subpar wr.

    I think it shows how weak Pac-12 defenses have been over the years. When you have 4 and 5 star USC recruits going up against Washington State, Oregon State, Arizona, AZ state, Colorado, and Utah defenses…

    Maybe. But I love porter. I was sick when w signed a Denver last year. Luckily for us he got hurt and didn’t really produce for them. And Jenkins is pretty good too. And Hayden isn’t gonna play nickel corner. So not beating out Jenkins and porter day 1 I don’t think is the worst thing in the world. But I agree he better get alot of minutes and be a starter by midway in the season.

    See the Post on Pro Football Talk below:

    1. I am intriged by this. I saw bring Tebow in for a workout and see if he really has improved. If not you lose a few hours if so you found more competition. My guess he is still inconsistent but you never know.

    2. I wonder what Winke would say about Pryor???

    *******************
    From Pro Football Talk:

    While just-released quarterback Tim Tebow hasn’t had much support today, at least one former Jet is disappointed he didn’t get a chance to stay.

    Former quarterback Vinny Testaverde had worked with Tebow recently in Florida, and he said he saw significant mechanical improvement.

    “I was kind of disappointed because I was hoping he’d get a chance to show the coaches what we worked on,” Testaverde told Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. “I think they would’ve been impressed if they had compared this year to last year.”

    Testaverde spent a week with Tebow, concentrating on his footwork. In layman’s terms, Testaverde said Tebow “was stepping in the wrong direction when he was throwing the football.”

    Testaverde also consulted with IMG instructor Chris Weinke, saying they “speak the same quarterback language” because they both played under Dan Henning.

    “Chris and I looked at Tim careful and we were both amazed,” Testaverde said. “Everybody has been focusing on his throwing motion, trying to fix that, but nobody had picked up his footwork. His footwork was all screwed up. Chris and I looked at each other after about four or five throws, and we saw the same thing. We got his footwork fixed. His throwing motion is now a non-issue.

    “He throws with what we call ‘effortless power.’ He doesn’t have that elongated motion anymore and his head isn’t moving 2 1/2 feet when he throws it.”

    We’ll find out in the coming days how much stock anyone puts into a new-improved Tebow, and whether he’s given another chance to prove he can be an NFL passer.

    last time we had a 1st round pick do well as a rookie was 1998, CWood. Im not expecting much of Hayden this year. If NFL personnel expected any corner to play at CWoods rookie level he would have been picked 1st overall.

    I hope that Hayden is he develops with time like Nnamdi.

  • dr_robert

    Hayden is better than porter and Jenkins though. He should beat them out on talent alone.

    Ford isn’t Reggie/DA’s guy. Any and all “losers” from the previous team are “show me or blow me”. Ford has to be better than everyone else to stick. Otherwise hit the road.

    Alex–Jesus showed anger especially at hypocritical Jews. People he expected to know better. People who were suggesting they represented God but didn’t act it. See a theme? It’s the gay-haters who proclaim hate in God’s name. That’s dangerous business when Jesus says love ur neighbor.

    The point is to be inclusive. If ur a believer and ur talking about how people are bad and they’re sinners, etc., ur not reeling them in, ur turning them away. Bad stuff. Christians are expected to be open and inclusive. Not exclusionary. We want to convert people. Not preach to the choir about how much better we are than “them”.

    Be nice. Understand. Don’t judge or condemn.

    People like to cast stones. Makes u feel righteous. But have u walked a mile in their shoes?

    I don’t like hating Christians. I am Christian and I. Decided long ago I could be friends with anybody. My work for God will come by being an example and planting seeds.

    It’s not where u are now. It’s where u end up. I’ve seen people change.

    But the converted have the gift and knowledge. They’re supposed to know better.

So if they plan on drafting him AND starting him, why go out and get 2 fairly young vets and resign Hanson? I think they will ease him in. Unless he just absolutely lights it up in preseason. Lets hope.

    Vinny Testaverde identified what was wrong with Tebow in 5 throws and fixed him in one week.

    Why in the heck would I bring Tebow in if I could just hire Testaverde to turn any turd into a nugget?

    Lmao. And Testaverde was a turd. Those who can’t do teach…….

    We need at least two instant starters, deserving not by default, out of this draft for it to be a success. Hayden is definetly expected to be one of them even though we could’ve gone through this year without drafting a CB. I hope Watson is the 2nd but likely Sio.

    I think all 3 could start. But our line backing is actually pretty deep right now, so Sio may have the hardest time getting out there, at least every down. Probably start as a passing situational back. Lets not forget Wilson. He may just pull a Wilson from last year. Same names same situation? We’ll see I guess.

    The TE from Tenn. could possibly start. He is a lot like Meyers. He is polished and ready to go. I would be nervous if Ausberry or Gordon. His stock was down because he is short for a TE and not all that fast either.
