Marcus Peters – CB

Back in 2015, the Vikings had the opportunity to draft former University of Washington cornerback, Marcus Peters. However, Minnesota decided to select Trae Waynes instead and Peters went on to be drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs a few picks after.

With Waynes and Peters both scheduled to be free agents in 2020, the Vikings have the opportunity for a do-over next year.

After a brief stint with the Los Angeles Rams, Peters is currently with the Baltimore Ravens and he’s played very well since he joined the team a few weeks ago. In three games with the Ravens this season, the young corner has already returned two interceptions for touchdowns and his coverage has only been able to catch 57.1 percent of their targets.

Meanwhile, Waynes is in the middle of a season that is likely going to cost him money during free agency in 2020. After a solid performance last year, the Vikings’ corner has had numerous moments out on the field in 2019 that he would probably like to forget.

Peters would not only be a great option for Minnesota instead of Waynes next season, but he could potentially take over as their No. 1 corner in 2020 as well with the way the Xavier Rhodes’ play has been declining recently.
