Peterson has quickly become a favorite target for Justin Fields and the SR wide receiver seems very consistent. He is a very fluid runner and can be quite dangerous to score (10 TD’s on the season) once out in open space and some forward momentum. He does a great job of reading the deep ball and timing his jump to high point the pass. Also very impressed with his route running and believe with additional improvement in agility he could be very tough to guard at the next level at multiple WR positions. Over the last year his footwork has certainly improved, he’s a lot better at getting of jam coverage, and seems to relying on his physical toughness more than ever to beat the CB out for the ball. Peterson is a no-nonsense type of player. He gets his work done, and looks an ideal student athlete at the next level.
