Draft visits for Thursday: CB Alex Carter from Stanford; CB Marcus Peters from Washington; LB Max Valles from UVa— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) April 9, 2015
The Pittsburgh Steelers continue their process of bringing in NFL Draft prospects for pre-draft visits, and have added three new names to the growing list. It should come as a shock to no one the positions of those three players: Cornerback and Linebacker.
The three players are CB Alex Carter from Stanford, CB Marcus Peters from Washington and LB Max Valles from Virginia. The Steelers are in need of pass rushers and defensive backs in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft, and the organization is bringing in just that. Defensive backs and linebackers.
Peters is the most curious of the group, as his troubles at Washington were more than well documented, but had him dismissed from the team. NFL teams wonder about his maturity and attitude and whether he can handle the task of NFL coaching and life. Nonetheless, Peters certainly encompasses the skills to make teams consider him in the first round of the draft.
Other than Peters, Carter is a versatile and intelligent defensive back who could potentially move to the safety position if needed. Valles is a raw linebacker who had 9 sacks in 12 games for Virginia in 2014, and could be a mid-round selection for a team looking for pass rushers.
