Now this one is a stretch, however, I feel that Marcus Peters has the talent to start from day one. If not that, then he will definitely see the field within his first professional game. This is also only relevant if your league drafts defensive players, which most don’t.

Should he be able to keep a level head and utilize this amazing gift of a secondary coaching staff he was given, Peters will be a turnover machine.

I know that he was kicked off his college team his senior year. People don’t let me forget it when I talk this guy up. If you look past that, you’ll see that Peters was possibly the best corner in this draft. Had he played his senior year, he would have been a top ten player.

  • Don’t believe me? Okay. Let’s look at his college stats:

    In the three years that Peters played for Washington, he had at least three interceptions every season. In 2012 and 2014 he had three interceptions while he had five in 2013.

    On top of the interceptions, Peters had a total of 27 passes defensed during his time in college. This tells me that even though he may not catch it every time, he’s always working to get the best position on the ball and tries to make a move for the ball.

    Thirdly, Peters has an Eric Berry-like talent for sniffing out the run. In the nine games that Peters played in 2014, he had four tackles for loss. While that may not be a huge number, its significant because corners usually don’t accumulate many tackles for loss.

    All of these states were courtesy of sports-reference.com.

    So what does all this mean?

    Yes, I’ll admit that taking Peters is a gamble. Having said that, I do believe that this is a gamble that I will take. I feel that Peters has a ton of talent and could have a very solid rookie season in the NFL.
