Where does Denver Broncos offensive line rank in AFC West?

1. Kansas City Chiefs

It’s clear that the Chiefs’ offensive line is one of the very best in football, let alone the AFC West.

After getting blown out in the Super Bowl in 2020, General Manager Brett Veach got to work, trading for Orlando Brown, signing Joe Thuney, and drafting both Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith.

Their interior of Thuney, Humphrey, and Smith is the nastiest in the NFL.  Patrick Mahomes isn’t having to run for his life behind this unit, which, like the Chargers and Broncos, have questions at right tackle, but I think Lucas Niang is set to take that job for 2022.

Even with one uncertainty at right tackle, the Chiefs line is a tier above their AFC West foes.

Fortunately, the Denver Broncos do not need to have an ultra-elite offensive line to win a ton of games.

In fact, the Cincinnati Bengals nearly won the Super Bowl with the worst unit in the league.

This offensive line for the Chiefs is going to make the transition to not having Tyreek Hill much easier.

Mahomes is going to have time to throw and to let plays develop, which is often what he had to do with Hill. This unit is the best in the AFC West, and one of the best in the NFL.
