Marcus Peters becomes the fourth Chief on the NFL’s top 100 players list

New, comments

Marcus Peters is ranked No. 32 on the NFL’s top 100 list as voted on by players. The Kansas City Chiefs cornerback was No. 65 last year so this is a nice step up. And it’s well-deserved. As the segment on Peters said, only five players since 1960 have more picks in their first two years than Peters - and two of them are in the Hall of Fame.

A few quotes:

Steelers CB Coty Sensabaugh: “Peters out there in Kansas City he’s a ballhawk.”

Chargers CB Casey Heyward: “Marcus, if I didn’t have to put myself at No. 1 with ballhawking, I would probably put him at No. 1.”

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman: “Marcus Peters has been catching the ball like nobody’s business since he came into the league.”

Bears WR Markus Wheaton: “Somehow the ball always seems to fall in his lap. That’s definitely a sign of being a good corner.”

Here’s the rest of the Chiefs top 100 rankings so far. I believe we should be waiting on Travis Kelce.

32. Marcus Peters (65)

36. Tyreek Hill (n/a)

76. Justin Houston (26)

81. Alex Smith (81)
