Strong Points

Runs an NFL-type system that allows him to audible and change protections. Can read defenses, go through a progression and make good decisions. Has a very quick release. Shows good accuracy with good ball placement. Has adequate arm strength. Displays good athletic ability and can avoid pass rushers and make plays with his feet. Shows he can look off one target and come back to another. Strong leader on the field.

Weak Points

Doesn't have ideal size at 6-2 1/2. Doesn't consistently throw a tight ball. A high percentage of his throws are in the short-to-medium range, so I am unsure of his actual arm strength.

The Way We See It

Very interesting prospect. Graduate transfer from Tennessee after three years where he started only a few games. Two-year starter at Pitt, where he put up good numbers. Peterman is smart, makes good decisions and is a strong leader on the field. He has as quick a delivery as any quarterback in the draft. He is accurate and is able to place the ball in the right spots. If his arm were a little stronger, he would be considered one of the better QBs in this draft.
