4. Marcus Peters
You knew that Peters would be on this list, and he checks in at No. 4. Peters is one of the best corners in the game today, already showcasing an incredible ability to track the ball while blanketing a receiver.
Peters was taken with the 18th-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Washington and many thought the selection was poor. Peters showed a tremendous amount of skill in college but was kicked off his team for behavioral problems associated with the coaching staff.
As it would turn out, Peters might have been the best pick of the entire draft. The youngster came into the league and dominated immediately, intercepting a pass from Brian Hoyer on his first play from scrimmage. The following week, Peters would intercept Peyton Manning on Thursday Night Football and take it to the house.
All told, Peters racked up a league-high eight interceptions and earned a Pro Bowl berth. He also was named No. 65 on NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2016 despite only having one year under his belt. At this juncture, we could be looking at one of the better players to ever play for the Chiefs.
Of course, that is wildly premature and Peters has to be successful for years, but the talent is clearly there.
Next: No. 3
