Player Overview

Peterson was a team captain and named top defensive player in 2015. He started alongside former Browns first-round pick Justin Gilbert but stood on his own feet last season against several of the nation's top receivers - Baylor's Corey Coleman, TCU's Josh Doctson and Oklahoma's Sterling Shepard.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Smooth cover corner who shows up in run support, gets his hands on a lot of pass and quickly locates the ball away from him. Good short-area quickness. Breaks quickly on the football. Technician seldom looks out of place in his assignments. Track background in high school as state champion in the 100 meters (10.86) and 200 meters (22.21). Pound-per-pound toughness and durability.

WEAKNESSES: Timed speed not always apparent on the field. Undersized defensive back struggles against larger receivers. For his size, he does not show a lot of burst and looks a little tight in his pedal. Does not transition naturally. Inconsistent footwork with wasted steps coming out of his breaks. He has the ball skills to be drafted, but needs to bulk up a bit and improve overall footwork.

IN OUR VIEW: With cover corner traits, Peterson is ready to contribute in the right scheme and sprinter speed - 10.86 in the 100 - could swing the pendulum in his favor.
