Nathan Peterman NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’3 225lbs
- Large hands
- Goes through progressions
- Throws WR’s open
Analysis: The first I noticed when I put on Nathan Peterman’s tape is that he grips the ball with big, 10-inch hands. Poised in pocket and takes the hit to deliver a completion. Will set-up, slide and then re-set before making his throw. Can cut it loose from off-balance angles from bootleg or play-action if he sees a winning option break open early. Full field reader. Works all the way through his progressions. Shoots glances at safeties to keep them in check. Strong natural accuracy. Able to throw receivers open and lead them away from danger. Can pinpoint passes to moving targets in his intermediate work. Great vision. Sees passing windows before they develop. Throws with outstanding timing and anticipation. Can put the ball on receivers’ hands as soon as they come out of a break if coverage dictates it. Utilizes accuracy and anticipation to challenge windows on all three levels. Won at Clemson hanging five touchdown passes on their talented stop unit. Good escapability and can extend drives with his legs. Excellent deep ball accuracy completing 46.2 percent of his deep throws.
- Arm strength
- Inconsistent mechanics
- Too aggressive at times
Analysis: Peterman came off as an accurate quarterback who understands the fundamentals of the game, but his arm strength in general is concerning. He has to prove to NFL scouts he has enough arm to challenge the same tight windows he did in college. His inconsistent delivery base causes some throws to sail. Has instances where he short strides and is forced to muscle it to his target. Will float some throws on seams and dig routes.
What the scouts say: “I like him. He made me a believer when I watched him against Clemson. I do want to see him throw live and get a feel for how the ball comes out. I never saw him in person and you can’t get a feel for that stuff on tape.”
