2015 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Marcus Peters


Height: 6’0”

Weight: 197

Position: Cornerback

Career Stats: 129 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 27 pass deflections and one forced fumble.

Strengths: Marcus Peters has the prototypical size you want at the cornerback position. Peters competes play in and play out and is super aggressive at the line of scrimmage. Peters feels he’s the best player on the field and can cover anyone. Peters best trait would be his ball skills, as he does a wonderful job of tracking the ball and usually gets his hands on it, breaking passes up left and right. Peters does a nice job of closing in on the receiver and doesn’t mind laying the big hit when having the chance. Marcus Peters is one of the more durable players in this draft, as he played in all 34 games and started 28 of them.

Weaknesses: Marcus Peters was constantly butting heads with the Washington coaching staff that eventually led to him getting dismissed from the team. Peters is a bit of a hothead and needs a strong coach who can keep him under control. Peters also can be a little grabby, especially downfield when he feels he’s about to get beat.

Projection: Marcus Peters would be a lock first round pick and probably the first corner to be drafted if it weren’t for his off-the-field issues. Still, I think Peters should be picked up in the first round. Peters is crazy talented and has the potential to be an All Pro corner at the next level for many years. NFL teams know this and somebody within the Top 20 is likely going to take a chance. Peters is worth the risk.
