STRENGTHS: He has a workable frame for the position with adequate athleticism to block in motion and pick up extra rushers. Peterson, who also earned Academic All-ACC honors last season, is at his best when he minds his mechanics and keeps his hands inside to control defenders.
WEAKNESSES: Will get himself in trouble with holding when he allows his hands to get wide of his target.

A native of Auburn, Ala., Peterson is the rare recruit who spurned offers from in-state powerhouses like Alabama and Auburn, committing to Southern Miss early in the process and then following Larry Fedora and the coaching staff to North Carolina.
While Landon Turner has been a mainstay at right guard, Peterson has been just as good, if not better, on the left side, starting 22 games there the past two years.
