The Chiefs selected Washington cornerback Marcus Peters in the first round. You can read my story about how they came to that decision here, and check out my cornerback rankings (which contains an eval of him) here. You can read Vahe Gregorian’s column about the pick here. Also, you can check out my pick-by-pick analysis of the first round here.

With the first round over, here’s my updated big board of draft-eligible prospects. Rankings are determined by a combination of the Chiefs’ needs and the players’ talent.

The numbers next to each player’s school represent the round The Star believes the Chiefs should take each player. The full scale can be found at the bottom of this page, but a 6.9 or higher represents a first-round grade.

Players who have had their number grades modified (after considering needs) since the release of The Star’s positional rankings (found here) are bolded, with the degree of change to their grade noted in parentheses.

Shout out to my colleague, Tod Palmer, for updating this list for me. Give him a follow on Twitter here, folks.
