Last week, we looked at the 2009 AFC West first-round class in our poll. This week, we’ll move on to the 2010 first-round class from the division. It seems like a much more promising group.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry, taken No. 5, was an instant star and he made the Pro Bowl after being a leader on a defense that keyed an unlikely division title. Oakland Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain was a big part of the defense and he looks like he has a bright future.
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews and Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas showed flashes when healthy, but both battled injuries as rookies. Thomas tore his Achilles earlier this offseason and he could miss at least half of the 2011 season.
Denver quarterback Tim Tebow made some plays when he started the final three games for the Broncos last season and he has a strong chance to start this season.
