Overall, I’m satisfied with the 2015 Chiefs draft class. For me, a draft class is defined by what you get with your picks in the first three rounds. In that regard I was happy with three of the four players that KC landed in that range. I’m hopeful that Mitch Morse will prove my doubts wrong, but other than his selection, I felt like the Chiefs did well in landing Marcus Peters, Chris Conley, and Steven Nelson. Their fourth-round pick Ramik Wilson was a solid, if not spectacular, pick who could challenge to play right away. While a couple of their late-round picks were unimpressive, they did land two guys in James O’Shaughnessy and Rakeem Nunez-Roches that I thought were great selections.

In terms of filling holes on the roster, the Chiefs did a good job of adding solid players at positions of need. However, as someone that wanted the Chiefs to add some starting competition across the offensive line, I was disappointed that they didn’t add an offensive tackle who could compete with Donald Stephenson and Jeff Allen on the right side.

While I can’t give this draft class an initial grade of an “A” due to Marcus Peters’ character flaws and what I see as reaches in the Morse and Alexander picks, this is still a good draft class with picks I’m excited about throughout the class.

Overall Draft Grade: B

So what do you think, Addicts? How would you grade the Chiefs’ draft class? Do you disagree with any of my player grades? Feel free to leave your own grade card in the comments below.

As always, thanks for reading and GO, CHIEFS!!!!!!
