It looks like Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles really is the LeBron James of the NFL. Even though James is a 2-time NBA champion, he is known for late-game turnovers that cost his team the game. You hate to see at team lose a game like that but the Chiefs are going to be just fine.

After missing the playoffs last year, they got themselves a piece that will put them right back in. They selected Marcus Peters, the best corner in the draft by far, at No. 18 in the 2015 NFL Draft. The only reason why he slid that far is because he of an incident he had with the Washington coaching staff that got him kicked off the team.

That was just the break the Chiefs needed as they were in desperate need of a corner. Players that are picked in the first round are expected to have an immediate impact on the team they go to. And Peters, so far, has made a huge, as-immediate-as-possible impact on the Chiefs.

On his first play of his career vs the Houston Texans in Houston, he came up with an interception. He also had three passes defended on the day and came up big in run support, finishing with seven tackles. Then on Thursday night, in his second game against the Denver Broncos, he intercepted a Peyton Manning pass and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown.

Is he on the way to NFL Rookie of the Year for 2015?

If he keeps this up, he’s a shoe-in.
