2023 AFC West Draft Picks, Team Needs and Mock Draft

“I have returned.”

-General Douglas MacArthur

It has been a long time coming but I have finally returned. It has been hard to be away for all of you guys and the rehab really, really sucked but it is over and the old fart is back!

Well, it is draft/free agency time when every team and fan has hope for the upcoming season. It is also that time for the ultimate speculation into what we think each team needs and who they will draft with their 1st pick. Let’s go!


Denver Broncos

Draft Picks:

  • Round 3, Pick 68 (from IND)
  • Round 3, Pick 69
  • Round 4, Pick 108
  • Round 5, Pick 140
  • Round 6, Pick 194 (from PIT)
  • Round 7, Pick 247 (from MIN)

Denver traded their 1st and 2nd round picks for Russell Wilson and Coach Sean Peyton.

Projected Cap Space: $12,235,634 (15th in the NFL Spotrac)

Team Needs: OL, DL, RB (NFL.com)

Mock Draft: OT Blake Freeland, 6’8”, 305 BYU

Without top draft capital, expect the Broncos to be patient and take the BPA in each round.


Kansas City Chiefs

Draft Picks:

  • Round 1, Pick 31
  • Round 2, Pick 63
  • Round 3, Pick 95
  • Round 4, Pick 122 (from MIA)
  • Round 4, Pick 134
  • Round 5, Pick 168
  • Round 6, Pick 197 (from MIA)
  • Round 7, Pick 227 (from ATL)
  • Round 7, Pick 251

Chiefs have the last pick in the 1st round after winning the Superbowl (FUCK THE CHIEFS).

Project Cap Space: $-473,578 (18th in the NFL Spotrac)

Team Needs: OT, WR, Edge (NFL.com)

Mock Draft: Edge Keion White, 6’5”, 285 Georgia Tech

This may seem to be a luxury pick but this guy would be a steal.


Las Vegas Raiders

Draft Picks:

  • Round 1, Pick 7 overall
  • Round 2, Pick 38 overall
  • Round 3, Pick 70 overall
  • Round 4, Pick 109 overall
  • Round 5, Pick 143 overall (from ATL)
  • Round 5, Pick 146 overall
  • Round 6, Pick 189 overall (from DAL)
  • Round 7, Pick 198 overall (from ARI)
  • Round 7, Pick 209 overall (from NE)

The Raiders are picking in the top 10 and have more holes than Swiss cheese.

Projected Cap Space: $46,284,005 (3rd in the NFL Spotrac)

Team Needs: QB, OL, CB (NFL.com)

Mock Draft: QB Will Levis, 6’3”, 232, Kentucky

Even if the Raiders sign a veteran QB, they need one to groom for the future.


Los Angeles Chargers

Draft Picks:

  • Round 1, Pick 21
  • Round 2, Pick 54
  • Round 3, Pick 85
  • Round 4, Pick 125
  • Round 5, Pick 158
  • Round 6, Pick 200
  • Round 7, Pick 241

The Chargers have the 21st pick and have Herbert’s contract extension looming.

Projected Cap Space: $-19,922,446 (28th in the NFL Spotrac)

Team Needs: WR, DL, TE (NFL.com)

Mock Draft: WR Jalin Hyatt 6’0”, 185 Tennessee

The Chargers need some speed at WR and they may have to make some tough choices at that position.
