Peters has first round talent but has had off-field issues and multiple run-ins with coaching staffs. Washington kicked Peters off the team in 2014, and sources say that not only did he lose his place on the team, but he lost out on being a first round draft pick as a result.

He has prototype size for a cornerback and has great fluidity in his hips to turn and run. Peters is very physical and intimidates receivers while also laying some big hits against the run game. He is at his best when contesting catches and often comes out the winner.

Peters is a ball hawk and frequently knocks the ball away or intercepts it. During the 2013 and 2014 season, Peters allowed only 38.1% of passes against him to be completed and broke-up 24 passes with eight interceptions. There is no doubting his talent, but teams are going to take a long hard look at his character before spending a high draft pick on him.
