Sure. If the slides don’t stop equally you’ll get some racking when pull out fully which could cause one side to com off the slide..

You can play around with slide lengths to dial that in.

I see no functional problem with them being staggered. It will be necessary to do so in order to access the release catch on the left side when the drawer is opened. The only potential problem I see is if the rear of the drawer is square, then the left rear corner will be unsupported. You can deal with that by keeping the drawer loads light, using heaver duty slides, or by using a longer slide on the left side.

I think the bigger issue is being able to access what you put in the drawers. I think a 45 degree pull out is a better option:

Yes this, though sometimes a bit maddening to actually do.
