NFL Draft grades: Kansas City Chiefs are addressing needs in the draft

New, comments

Let's grade the Kansas City Chiefs draft so far. Yes, it's way too early. No, I don't care.

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are halfway through their 2015 NFL Draft. They started this thing with seven picks and then received four compensatory picks for their 2014 free agent class.

Those 11 picks shrunk down to 10 when the Chiefs traded a fifth round pick for G Ben Grubbs earlier this year. From there, the Chiefs used a sixth round pick to trade up and select WR Chris Conley on Friday night.

That leaves the Chiefs with four picks so far. SB Nation's Dan Kadar is grading those picks so far as a B-.

"I'm not a fan of the Morse pick - it feels like it could have happened a round or more later," Kadar writes. "But I like the other three selections. Nelson is an ideal slot corner and Peters is obviously a talented shutdown player on the outside. The Conley pick is intriguing. I didn't have him rated that high, but he's someone I started to like more and more as we got closer to the draft. His big-play potential is high."

This is how Chiefs fans are grading the picks so far.

1 (18). Marcus Peters, CB, Washington

2 (49). Mitch Morse, OL, Missouri

3 (76). Chris Conley, WR, Georgia

3 (98). Steven Nelson, CB, Oregon State

Here are the Chiefs remaining picks

Round 4: (19) No. 118 overall

Round 5: (36) No. 172 overall (Compensatory)

Round 5: (37) No. 173 overall (Compensatory)

Round 6: (42) No. 217 overall (Compensatory)

Round 7: (16) No. 233 overall
