    Chiefs acquired OG Andy Alleman from the Dolphins.

    The cost was likely a late-round draft pick. Alleman was bench-bound in Miami, but the Chiefs need all of the help they can get on the offensive line. He could push right guard Mike Goff for the starting job

    I wonder if Allerman was brought in at OG or at C (he's played both).

    Anyway, we probably traded a 2010 6th rounder for him. It's worth the risk.

    Well, from the last game I watched. Our entire offensive line got their Behinds kicked. I know the Viking have a great defensive line, but they still kicked our behinds without Jared Allen.

    I was not aware Cassel was such a mobile QB. He was impressive.

    Any changes to this line, is at least a good sign that the Chiefs are trying to improve at those positions.

    We got another OG from the Dolphins as well apparently.. I won't create a new post since I've never heard of him either.

    In addition to Andy Alleman, the Chiefs also acquired OG Ike Ndukwe from the Dolphins.

    It must have been an interesting Sunday night dinner for Bill Parcells and his son-in-law, Chiefs GM Scott Pioli. Ndukwe could start at right guard for the Chiefs, and Alleman may be pushed to center where he'd be an upgrade on Rudy Niswanger and Eric Guiaciuc. The Dolphins are obviously happy with the progress of guards Donald Thomas and Shawn Murphy.
    Interesting. If both of these guys end up being good enough to upgrade our starters at C and RG I'll be thrilled.

    Both of these guys started in Miami last season due to injuries. They didn't disappoint. Alleman is very athletic and Ndukwe is a strong cat.

    I was watching some of the highlights from Miami after hearing this and made a couple of observations...

    Andy Alleman

    Positives

    Athletic, strong arm drive blocker. In run blocking he has quick feet and good recovery quickness. He's strong at the point of attack and can drive most lineman out of the way when run blocking. When he is equally matched in pass protection he's solid and can hold his ground with bigger DTs. A good run blocker and steady pass blocker.

    Negatives

    He plays too high. Stiff in the hips and will bolt himself to the ground and lunge in pass protection casuing him to over extend and lose position in protection. Against agile DTs he appeared to struggle keeping step for step with them do in part to poor footwork.

    Overall

    He's not a zone blocker. In most pass plays he covered his defficeny by playing too his strength in drive blocking, getting his hands inside the numbers quick and angling his man out of the play and making him a non factor. A definitive upgrade to the line when he plays to his strengths.

    Ike Ndukwe

    Positives

    A wall. This guy is undeniably strong. Not as fast as Alleman (quicker then D-Mac) but is much more stout at the point of attack. A solid blocker in both the pass and run; once he has his hands on someone its practically game over. He is a much better zone blocker, taking good angles to compensate for his slower speed and able to strong arm strong DEs while being versitale enough to catch quicker bull rushers and litterally kill their momentum pushing them back with ease.

    Negatives

    He is a wall. The guy is not the best down field blocker. While he has adequate latteral speed and agility he is occassionaly beat by a quick inside move or outside speed rush. While he is undeniably strong he catches (allows for DEs to charge in to him) more often then not, relying on his strength and stability in his legs to hold off against a quick DE which on occassion allows for guys he should beat normally to get inside leverage with momentum and drive him back into the pocket.

    Overall

    Best suited for a RT (he started their at Miami and showed promise) better then Dmac and Barry Richardson by far.

    Edit: My amateur scouting report. Take it with a grain of salt and form your own opinion. In my opinon this was a solid move by the front office.
