The Football Outsiders offer their post-draft red-flag areas for each AFC West team. Let’s review.
Red flag: Middle linebacker
My thoughts: It is a potential problem. But the Broncos feel like they will find a suitable option from among free-agent signee Stewart Bradley and youngsters Nate Irving and Steve Johnson. It is not a position that Denver puts a ton of emphasis on.
Kansas City Chiefs
Red flag: Wide receivers
My thoughts: I think it depends on Donnie Avery, Jon Baldwin and Dexter McCluster. The team is high on all three. If two of them can complement No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City will be fine in this area.
Red flag: Interior offensive linemen
My thoughts: The Raiders have plenty of holes and there are bigger issues than this area. As for the biggest red flag, I’d say it's the pass rush. Oakland was weak in the area last season and there are no reliable, experienced options here other than Andre Carter -- and he is a situational player.
San Diego Chargers
Red flag: Offensive line
My thoughts: Most certainly. In particular, left tackle is the problem. The Chargers will try to fix it, perhaps by signing Max Starks. He wouldn’t be great, but he’d still represent an upgrade.
