Strengths:

  • Great size
  • Physical-press corner
  • Re-directs receivers at snap
  • Good ball skills
  • Confident

Analysis: Peters is a prototypical press corner, he has ideal size and length for the position.  Not afraid of his game, Peters’ confidence is shown at the line of scrimmage with his physical jam of receivers.  Peters has good ball skills when the ball is in the air and win a lot of 50/50 balls.  He excels in man coverage.

Need to improve:

  • Head case- serious emotional issues
  • Not coachable
  • Does not have elite speed
  • Mental mistakes- immaturity on the field too

Analysis: Peters while gifted physically, comes with a lot of emotional baggage.  Somewhat of a head case, Peters was suspended, then thrown off of his Washington Huskies team due to constant run-ins with the coaching staff.  Many scouts and personnel wonder if he will be able to accept coaching at the next level.  He lacks elite speed and gets beat when he becomes overconfident in his game–cannot recover especially to faster receivers.  Mental errors affect his play, has received many personal foul penalties.

Round prediction: 2nd round
