McShay likes CB Marcus Peters to Lions in 1st mock draft

The Detroit News

Washington cornerback Marcus Peters is matched with the Lions at the No. 26 pick in the first mock draft published by ESPN's Todd McShay.

Peters (5-11, 193 pounds) has "very good athleticism and prototypical size for the position," McShay writes.

Unfortunately, Peters is also no longer a member of Washington's football team, which concludes its season Jan. 2 against Oklahoma State in the TicketCity Cactus Bowl.

Peters was kicked off the team earlier this month by coach Chris Petersen following an argument between Peters and an assistant coach in practice. There had been other previous disciplinary issues with Peters at Washington.

McShay's mock draft includes underclassmen like Peters and is based on current NFL standings, including the strength of schedule tiebreaker.

Michigan receiver Devin Funchess is matched with the 49ers at No. 15 and McShay also has Michigan State cornerback Trae Wayne going 20th to the Eagles. McShay's No. 1 pick is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota to the Buccaneers.
