This is your chance to put on your general manager cap and have a little fun.

The NFL’s Twitter account had a great idea to pick one skill position player from each AFC West team.

Here are your choices:

The rules are easy — pick one quarterback, one running back, one tight end and one wide receiver and you have to take one player from each team

Here’s my picks:

I took Mahomes, of course, because he’s one of the best players in the NFL, if not the very best. I took Waller because he is the best player on Las Vegas’ roster. That left the Chargers and the Broncos at running back and wide receiver.

Allen was the best player available. That left Gordon. I don’t love him as a player, but if I had to compromise at a position, running back is the place to do it.

What are your choices?
