By the time the sixth round rolls around, teams are looking for “diamonds in the rough” so to speak. Garry Peters of Clemson could be just that for the KC Chiefs. According to Lance Zierlein, Peters hadn’t allowed a touchdown pass for the last 58 passes thrown his way. Pretty impressive.

  • Also, as I mentioned above with the selection of Quandre Diggs, the Chiefs will need more guys in the secondary in 2015. Opposing teams will be more aware of their talented defense coming into the season and it’ll be nice to have a few rookies who other teams aren’t entirely aware of what they can do.

    "Scheme-dependent cornerback who is best suited to a bump-and-run or Cover-2 defense due to his length and disruptive nature off the line of scrimmage. Peters doesn’t have great play strength and is a willing tackler more than an aggressive hitter, but he plays with desired competitiveness and hasn’t allowed a touchdown pass against him over his last 58 targets, spanning two years. If Peters can run an average 40-yard dash and add some bulk to his frame, he has the potential to become a starter. – NFL.com"

    NFL.com seems to think that Peters is more of a seventh round pick or even will go undrafted, but I would still be okay with Kansas City taking a chance on him in round six.
