The Saints continue to show interest in Marcus Peters.

The Washington cornerback is among a handful of players visiting New Orleans for a pre-draft visit on Monday, according to a source. UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks and Washington State defensive tackle Xavier Cooper are also meeting with the team.

Peters also met with the Saints staff after his Pro Day on April 2.

Peters is considered to be one of the more talented cornerbacks in the draft, but his stock took a hit when he was dismissed from Washington’s program in November following a confrontation with the coaching staff.

At the scouting combine, the cornerback said the rift developed because he did not take well to the transition from former head coach Steve Sarkisian to new coach Chris Petersen. He’s since apologized and made peace with the coaching staff.

Kendricks is widely considered one of the top players at his position and is coming off a season in which he recorded 149 tackles and four sacks.

Cooper finished last season with 37 tackles, 9.5 for a loss, and five sacks. He also had five sacks as a sophomore.

The Saints have nine picks in the draft, including the 13th, 31st, and 44th selections.
