Chiefs turn to other needs after picking Peters in round 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) After filling their void at cornerback, the Kansas City Chiefs will begin addressing the rest of their needs as the NFL draft churns through two more rounds on Friday night.

The Chiefs have nine more picks in this year's draft, including a second-round choice for the first time in three years and two third-round selections.

With the No. 18 overall pick, the Chiefs chose Marcus Peters of Washington. The talented cornerback was kicked off the Huskies' team this past season after a series of run-ins with coaches, but the Chiefs say he has matured.

Now, the Chiefs turn their attention to filling holes at wide receiver, offensive line and inside linebacker, while adding depth along the defensive line and in the secondary.
