Chat wrap: An Oakland trade down?

Here is a look at some highlights of our AFC West chat, which was held Thursday:


Luke from Denver: What are the odds of Denver keeping both of its coordinators, McCoy and Del Rio, into next year? Which one is more likely to land somewhere else?

Bill Williamson: I think the odds are McCoy will leave more than Del Rio. Del Rio's names haven't popped up for a head-coaching job. He may have to wait a year. If Denver makes the Super Bowl, it will be interesting to see if any team will wait for him. Some people think Arizona might wait for him.

Kansas City

Ben Dickson from Albuquerque: Do you see the Chiefs drafting a linebacker or offensive tackle in the first round and picking Tyler Wilson in the second?

BW: Yes, I think you are on the right track. I can see a QB such as Wilson being a target in the second round.


Mike from San Diego: I would love the Raiders to trade out of number 3 spot. Do you see anything willing to trade down for elite Defense of player?

BW: That stuff will be settled in the coming months. It all depends if a team falls in love with a certain player. The problem is there are a lot of top defensive players, so teams will have options and will be less apt to feel the need to make a deal.

San Diego

Enrique from San Diego: Congrats to Tom Telesco, looking forward to what he can do for our organization! He mentioned he was going to decide what he wants to do offensively and defensively, does this mean there's a chance we switch to a 4-3 D?

BW: I like the hire ... As far as the 4-3, 3-4. I can see the defensive staff being kept and all systems go. The defense is not a problem there.
