Around the NFL writer Chris Wesseling compiled a midseason All-Pro team for NFL.com, and two Kansas City Chiefs cracked the roster.
On the defensive side of the football, Wesseling highlighted cornerback Marcus Peters. Here are his comments:
The first half of Peters' rookie season left many with the misguided notion that he's a gambler, vulnerable to big plays. That's simply not the case. Since this time last season, though, Peters has been not just a premier playmaker but also a shutdown corner, ranking in the top five in lowest completion percentage and passer rating on throws in his coverage. Peters has a commanding lead in interceptions (13) since entering the league, three more than the next-closest player in that span, according to NFL Media Research. Peters also has nearly as many passes defensed this season (11) as the entire Jacksonville Jaguars team (15).
In special teams, Wesseling highlighted rookie returner Tyreek Hill. Here are his comments:
Second only to Andre Roberts in combined return yardage, the elusive Hill is averaging a league-best 15.9 yards per punt return. Drawing comparisons to Devin Hester and former Chiefs return ace Dante Hall, the fifth-round rookie is proving to be one of the league's most dynamic threats with the ball in his hands. The Chiefs are even starting to take advantage of his 4.25 speed as a deep-threat receiver.
