What Grade Did NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks Give the Chiefs Rookies?

Brooks handed out grades for all 32 NFL teams

The fact that the Kansas City Chiefs rookie class was nothing short of spectacular this season isn't a huge surprise, but how did it measure up compared to the other teams in the NFL?

For that, we lean on the expertise of NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks, who gave the Chiefs rookies an "A" for their performance in 2015.

Here's part of what Brooks had to say, via

"Credit GM John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid for building a deep and talented roster capable of earning a playoff berth despite losing one of the NFL's most explosive players (Jamaal Charles![](/team/roster/jamaal-charles/0c648717-db12-4089-9222-b245a9db4fc3/ "Jamaal Charles")) early in the season. *Marcus Peters![](/team/roster/marcus-peters/0974ad95-eadc-43fa-b6ea-6fc223e97c8a/ "Marcus Peters") deserves kudos for his spectacular play as the *Chiefs*' CB1. The rookie ballhawk swiped a league-high eight interceptions and defended 26 passes as a suffocating playmaker on the perimeter.

Alexander") not only upgraded the team's depth at linebacker, but they played a major role on the *Chiefs*' special teams units. Offensively, Mitch Morse![](/team/roster/mitch-morse/34ea81dd-af90-4a89-b186-bd5dfc0eb482/ "Mitch Morse") looks like a keeper as a heady player with exceptional instincts and awareness."*

There were only three other teams that received an "A" grade besides the Chiefs, and they were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills.

Staying inside the AFC West division, the Oakland Raiders received an "A-," while the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers both received a "C ."
