He plays with in the system and rarely gets raddled in the face of adversity. Peterman takes care of the football and does not force many throws.
Average NFL size and arm strength who continues to improve. He throws a catchable pass and usually leaves his WR protected. Peterman can deliver a nice deep ball.
He possesses sneaky speed to pick up yards via his feet. Not exactly the most athletic quarterback prospect but overall has a lot of upside. A real prospect to consider and develop, Peterman has a shot to develop into a starting caliber quarterback.
