2015 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
The field cornerback has started 20-of-26 games for the Huskies, but many feel that Peters' "coming out party" will be in 2014. One of the fastest pass defenders in the country, he had 80 passes targeted into his area last season, with 18 of those tosses resulting in receptions (22.5%). He delivered 20 pass break-ups and eight interceptions as a starter, including five thefts and nine deflections, along with 55 tackles in 2013. Peters is a short strider with that explosive second gear and burst to close in an instant. He has the loose hips to redirect, doing a nice job of planting and driving out of his breaks. He has the valid speed to stay with his assignment on deep patterns and does a nice job of getting his body in the way to prevent catches over the opponent's outside shoulder. He can close in an instant and is quick to react to the ball in flight, showing natural hands to make the interception or pass deflection. He has the burst needed to accelerate and close on plays at the opposite end of the field and has the second gear to catch up on rare times that he is beaten.
