Part 4 brings us to the AFC West. The AFC West was one of the best divisions in football last year. You had the Super Bowl losing Denver Broncos, the resurgent Kansas City Chiefs, the surprising San Diego Chargers and the also ran Oakland Raiders.
Kenny Annuike –DE –Duke
Marvin Austin –DT –North Carolina
Nate Irving –LB –NC State
Bryn Renner –QB –North Carolina
Juwan Thompson –RB –Duke
Sylvester Williams –DT –North Carolina
This is more like it. After running through the AFC South it is nice to see some familiar faces here on the Broncos. Irving was a steady player at State. Austin nearly brought down the UNC football program over the tweet that launched a thousand investigations. Renner is looking to make a comeback after losing his senior season to injury. Williams has super potential, so hopefully, John Fox and Jack Del Rio will use it.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
And then the Chiefs don’t have anybody. Celebrated too soon I guess. Embarrassed by all those Bronco riches. Hey Chiefs, you might need some of our Old North Staters before it is all said and done.
Carlos Fields –OB –Winston Salem State
Greg Little –WR –North Carolina
CJ Wilson –DE –East Carolina
Greg Little will be looking to be build a new start in Oakland after his time with the Cleveland Browns. One thing he will need to do is lessen his number of drops.
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
Brandon Ghee –CB –Wake Forest
Philip Rivers –QB –NC State
Willie Smith –OT –East Carolina
There was a time when Philip Rivers might have been the number 1 quarterback produced by NC State. It is amazing how times change. Rivers is still the biggest fish in the AFC West pool of North Carolina based talent. The fate of the Chargers still runs through arm and mind of Rivers.
