Washington Huskies cornerback Marcus Peters is no-doubt ready for the NFL so he has decided to enter the 2015 NFL Draft. He is simply the best at his position in college football so he should definitely be the first corner selected in the draft. He can get in your face in press-coverage, he can play off, he can play zone, he has good hands and he can come up to make a tackle.

There are no weaknesses and with the need at his position in such a passing league, that means he’s going in the first round right?

Hold up!


There is one slight problem and that is he was dismissed from the Huskies football program for not getting along with his new coaches. So now, that’s going to go on the list as football related character concerns surrounding the NFL’s best cover corner prospect. The NFL is full of great prospects whose stock falls or they don’t get drafted because of character concerns and a dismissal is pretty serious.

Should it affect Peters’ stock?
