Seattle Seahawks CB’s To Watch For The Draft
5) Marcus Peters, Washington
Already a contreversial name in Seattle from his time, or lack therof, at the University of Washington, Marcus Peters has slowly been falling down draft boards as we move closer to April 30. Peters was once a top-15 prospect, but now many have him falling out of the first round altogether.
This is good news for Seahawks fans.
Peters is as physical as they come at the cornerback position. He doesn’t just jam wide receivers, he takes them completely out of plays.
Pete Carroll has both taken risks on guys with checkered pasts, as well as passed them up without a second look. So we’ll just have to see what he thinks of Peters come draft day, should Peters start to fall through the second round.
