Marcus Peters

On the field of play, Marcus Peters is the best cover-corner prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft. But too bad for Peters that he can’t get all the way off the football field before he gets into trouble. So he’s actually kind of an on the field risk for any team that’s interested in his talents.

When playing, he has everything from speed, physical at the line of scrimmages to his ability to turn those hips. But he’s known not to take to well to coaching as soon as he gets off the field of play unto the sidelines. NFL.com reported that he allegedly choked a coach on the sideline as a result of an argument that escalated.

If he actually did that, not taking to well to coaching is the understatement of the decade. An NFL personnel director told Zlerlein, “I wouldn’t take him in the first two rounds. He’s good but he’s not that good that I would be willing to deal with his emotional issues. But with the need for corners in the NFL, someone is going to take that risk in the first round, where many boards have him.
