Bottom Line

Peters is a play-maker that can straight up cover.

So do you leave him alone or take him if your a corner away from contending for a Super Bowl?

To me, someone like New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin or Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, should leave him alone. But a head coach like Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers or Pete Carol of the Seattle Seahawks could work with him. And while Carol doesn’t need him,  Tomlin could go back to the Super Bowl quick if they took Peters in the draft.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could very well be interested and has Deion Sanders at his disposal to mentor him. I think there’s going to be a player-friendly coach or owner that’s desperate for a corner that rolls the dice in the first round. Talent usually wins out and you can’t just go out and find yourself a corner because they are much too hard to find.
