AFC West mock draft (take III)

We’re continuing our weekly AFC West mock draft.

This is our third week doing the project. This is the first week we’re including the Chargers, whose season ended with a playoff loss to the Jets on Sunday. San Diego will pick at No. 28 in the first round.

No. 5, Kansas City: OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State. With Okung at left tackle, the Chiefs will start reloading this once proud offensive line.

Last week: Okung.

No. 8, Oakland: OT Anthony Davis, Rutgers. Davis could step right in and make an impact for Oakland.

Last week: Davis.

No. 10 or No. 11*, Denver: LB Rolando McClain, Alabama. Oakland could also look at McClain, who seems destined to be an NFL star.

Last week: McClain.

No. 28, San Diego: Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech. Dwyer would be perfect for the Chargers. With LaDainian Tomlinson likely on his way out, the Chargers need a new workhorse. Dwyer could give this offense the balance it missed this season.

* There will be a coin flip at the NFL combine in late February between Jacksonville and Chicago for the No. 10 pick. The Broncos own Chicago’s first-round pick from the Jay Cutler trade.
