15. <p>The Saints really cannot afford to do anything but select defense. There defense was horrible last season, it could have beaten Charmin Ultra Soft in a national softness challenge. Marcus Peters has his issues, but Sean Payton is a strong head coach. Payton is a phenomenal leader of men and he will reign in Peters who is unbelievably talented. Peters is aggressive and physical and has tremendous cover skills and ideal size.</p> <p>The Saints can’t pass on Peters. He is a physical and disruptive cornerback who has great vertical ability and the ability to physically compete with bigger wide receivers. Peters has the ideal length, the ideal recovery speed and if it weren’t for his baggage we’d be debating if he was better than Waynes from MSU.</p> <p>Peters is a hot head. It isn’t the most admirable trait in a cornerback. That being said he has incredible talent. Talent wins out in the NFL. In the world where everyone is a physical specimen, elite physical ability goes a long way.</p> <p>Peters ran a 4.53 second 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. His vertical jump was an impressive 37.5. He had one of the best scores on the 60 yard shuffle which displays the fluidity of his movement. He is a superstar cornerback, who just needs to mature.</p>. Cornerback. Washington. Marcus Peters. 13. player
