Flip Wilson Posted April 24, 2010 Share Posted April 24, 2010 03/30/2010 - The Cleveland Browns are proving that they'll leave no stone unturned in their search of defensive tackle prospects in this year's NFL draft. University of Kentucky defensive tackle Corey Peters is the latest prospect to be linked to the club. Peters worked out for Cleveland a week ago and impressed members of the coaching staff. He has generated some interest around the league working out for New England as well. He is scheduled to visit the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans this week. In a draft class deep at the D-tackle position, the underrated tackle won't take a back seat to anyone. "I'm extremely confident in my abilities," Peters said. "I feel like I'm better than a lot of the guys out there. I'm on the cusp of being everything I can possibly be as a player. I have a lot of upside and have been training for the NFL since I stepped on campus." The 6-foot-3, 302-pound Peters led the SEC in tackles-for-loss and sacks among his peers this past season. He was first-team All Conference Coaches and second-team AP. Peters is gifted athletically, aggressive and can do a lot of things in the trenches. He's a good overall player but does have some flaws. Peters must improve on his upper body strength and finishing plays. His strength has improved, which was made evident at the school's Pro Day when he banged out 26 reps of 225 pounds. He put up some pretty good numbers during the workout to increase his draft stock. - Dayton Daily News Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
