In 48 hours, this will all be over — mock draft season, I mean. You’ll be safe from NFL Draft guesswork until sometime in early 2016. For now, stand with me as I deliver my second (and final) 2015 mock draft for the Kansas City Chiefs. I’ll step into the war room one last time and come out the other side as the shrewd general manager you’ve entrusted to lead this mythical franchise. In case you missed my original mock, you can catch both parts of it here and here. Get yourself caught up with the draft that netted a “B” grade from 60 percent of our readers (five people according to our WordPress pollster, but the poll stopped running early for reasons unknown, don’t judge my life).

You guys know the drill. We’re using Fanspeak’s On the Clock Draft Simulator to complete this process. I’m sure most of you are familiar with the site, but on the off chance you’ve never indulged, I suggest you check it out. You can draft between 1-7 rounds for any of the 32 teams in the league. Again, we’re drafting for the only NFL team that matters — the Kansas City Chiefs.

This time around, I’ll employ a strict “best player available” strategy in each round. I challenged pure BPA as a draft strategy a few weeks ago. This will either cement my criticism of the ideology or cancel out what little credibility I have left. I’m willing to take that chance though. One last housekeeping item: OTC gives me the option of choosing between 14 player ranking sites, but for today’s mock I’ll use a composite big board that will pull and compile data from all of them.

Let’s not waste any more time!

Round 1: Pick 18 | Marcus Peters, CB, Washington

So far, so good. Peters is actually one of the players on my Round 1 shortlist for Kansas City, coachability notwithstanding. His highly-publicized episodes with coaches at the University of Washington, which ultimately got him dismissed from the team, are troublesome. The former Husky has inconsistent technique, and he needs to be malleable at the NFL level to mature as a player. His talent is undeniable, but if he can’t handle criticism and instruction in the pros, he could quickly become a wasted pick. The Chiefs need options in case the league levies a two-game suspension against Sean Smith for his 2014 DUI rap.
