Scouting Report

40 time: 4.82

Undrafted free agent

Snapshot: After being Mr. Football in Indiana in 2015, Peters crossed state lines to play for the Michigan Wolverines. He started four games in three seasons with the program, but the presence of Shea Patterson in the quarterback room led to a graduate transfer heading into 2019. While he consistently showcased his arm talent in his three seasons with the Illini, his inconsistency and injury problems led to him bouncing out of the starting job at times as a super senior.

Strengths: Quality size with a ready-made NFL frame. Powerful thrower who generates a ton of velocity on his passes. Comfortable throwing off platform and won't be deterred by tough angles of release. Has the arm talent necessary to make up for some of his mental errors.

Weaknesses: Misses too many freebies and forces his receivers to work overtime to scoop passes off the turf. Saw some usage as a designed runner, but doesn't have the athleticism to do it effectively as a pro. Late to identify and adjust to pressure, and gets blindsided too often within the pocket. Late to get passes off and allows windows to close due to slower processing capabilities.

Pro comparison: Tanner Lee, free agent -- Lee's rocket arm helped him to get picked late in the 2018 draft, but he was out of the league within a year due to his scattershot accuracy. The arm strength is evident, but if Peters doesn't improve his ball placement and feel for the game, he's going to get a very short window to play professionally.
