#2 Marcus Peters, Cornerback, Washington

Marcus Peters is the most talented cover man in this year’s class.  On good days, he presses receivers at the line, takes them out of games and makes plays on the ball.  His athletic measurables aren’t overwhelming but allow him to keep up with top-tier competition.

On the downside, he barely performs up to his undeniably big potential.  The California native displays a lack of effort at times, focuses too much on trash talking and discourages teammates with his body language.  The cornerback was kicked off the Huskies roster in the fall and hung out with Marshawn Lynch who is not the greatest role model for younger players.  If you truly want to be a professional, become a star in the league and get paid big bucks, attitude is key — Marcus Peters happens to have a horrible one.
