The 2015 NFL Draft is in the books. Now is the time when fans turn to boundless optimism as they espouse their beliefs that a sixth-round rookie was the missing piece in a Super Bowl run, or how the guy they got in the third round is likely going to be an All Pro for years to come. The Chiefs added a pair of inside linebackers in the middle rounds of the draft in Ramik Wilson and DJ Alexander, which means there will definitely be competition for the backup job.
The Kansas City Chiefs kicked off the 2015 NFL draft by grabbing one of this year's top cornerback prospects in Washington 's Marcus Peters. The reason O'Shaughnessy can make an immediate impact in the Chiefs offense is because there is room for him to do so. The downside with O'Shaughnessy is that he is a bit raw as a blocker and as a route-runner.
Under the guidance of Thomas and Harris, it's no wonder Peters lit up when asked about the opportunity to play in Kansas City. The Chiefs addressed positions of need with the nine selected players and the draft board fell the way the team hoped it would. Among the callers were the Dallas Cowboys , the Chicago Bears , the Atlanta Falcons , the Miami Dolphins , the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints .
Like in 2014 when the KC Chiefs selected Dee Ford the Chiefs stayed true to their philosophy and drafted the best player available on their board. A majority of the experts mock drafts had the KC Chiefs drafting a wide receiver, offensive lineman, or inside linebacker in the first round. The three first round picks from the John Dorsey and Andy Reid regime are offensive tackle Eric Fisher, outside linebacker Dee Ford, and now cornerback Marcus Peters.
San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram (54) sacks Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel (10) in the third quarter. The team is thrilled with the work he put in over the winter. Here is one positive way to look at the situation: Ingram is the Chargers draftee who will be the difference maker to the pass rush.
Newly signed free agents, flush with cash, are working themselves into the fold. And no one has stepped onto the field yet, which means the high hopes for all remain intact. So it should come as no surprise that you can add the Chiefs and general manager John Dorsey to the long list of league executives and coaches who proudly declared that this year's group has been strengthened heading into organized team activities."

The latest is wide receiver Manasseh Garner , who will join the Kansas City Chiefs , per the Panthers . And while it's ancient history now (and was a minor issue to begin with to be perfectly honest), his comments about not playing for the fans after the team's disappointing loss to Akron last season didn't help endear him to fans.
#80 James O'Shaughnessy - Illinois State TE Highlights
A London trip and no home games between Oct. 26 and Nov. 28. Hunt also clarified (somewhat) the reasoning behind the Chiefs going overseas, that the NFL has mandated that any city that wins a bid to host a Super Bowl must give up a home game to the NFL International Series in the future.
Reid recounted to Whisenhunt about his decision to refuse an offer from Mike Ditka, who was coaching the New Orleans Saints at the time, and offering his entire draft for the second pick in 1999, so he could move up and get running back Ricky Williams. You can skip to the end and leave a response.
NFL rejected La'el Collins' request to be removed from draft until police complete murder investigation, per source. If Collins falls into the third day of the draft then I would be in favor of the Chiefs using a late supplemental draft pick on him and letting the legal process play out because at that point the risk is worth the reward, but I don't see it being worth it in the first two days.
