Featured Mocks: AFC West
Here are a couple disclaimers on these mocks before you read them:
1) This is for FUN! And a tribute and thank you to all of you that have been using On the Clock to create your own mock drafts! So we decided to pick some of our favorites. So this is not what we are predicting will happen, just showing some good things you GMs out there were able to do with On the Clock!
2) People used various big boards so the rankings will change. Again, anything can happen in the NFL Draft but you will see players in various places on these mocks because different big boards were used.
3) Its not the same mock draft for all 32 teams. Why do you see the same player going 3 times in a division? Because these are 32 different simulations run, therefore a player can go to various teams depending on how their draft played out.
Enjoy and see Steve’s analysis on this division’s mock drafts below!

-The Broncos trade back in this mock taking advantage of the impressive depth of this draft class. Despite trading back they land a couple guys who can help them right away at guard and along the defensive line in the first two rounds. The Broncos then add a lot of quality depth, particularly along the defensive line and secondary, two positions that were decimated with injuries last season. Given how much money the Broncos have tied up in free agency going forward stockpiling the roster with young cheap talent is a smart move.
Kansas City Chiefs:
-The Chiefs weren’t able to do much in free agency and they are missing their 2nd round pick so this mock where they trade back to stock pile some picks makes some sense. Kansas City really improves their offensive line, secondary and wide receiver corps with this mock, which are the three areas where they are the weakest. This is a good mock for a team that will have a much tougher road getting back to the playoffs this year with a much tougher schedule.
-This is a non-trade mock, but one that sees them landing an impact offensive lineman in the first round, while improving their defensive talent throughout the rest of the draft. Though the Raiders brought in a lot of defensive free agents, they are all stop gap options for just a year or two, so this draft could really pay off 2 years from now when they have all moved on.
San Diego Chargers:
-This is a trade back mock scenario for the Chargers with a heavy focus on defense, particularly early on. The Chargers defense didn’t do them any favors last year and they have to improve this season, particularly upfront. On offense the Chargers land a quality receiver to pair with Keenan Allen and a a potential starting offensive lineman in the early rounds.
