BIO: Junior college transfer who broke into the starting lineup as a senior and posted 53/3/1 after 14 tackles the prior season.
POSITIVES: High-intensity defender who projects as a one-gap lineman at the next level. Plays with excellent pad level, gets leverage on opponents and is fluid moving laterally. Fights with his hands throughout the action and plays hard until the whistle blows.
NEGATIVES: Lacks playing strength, can be ridden from the point and rarely gets penetration. Does not display great first step off the snap.
ANALYSIS: Playing with reckless abandon, Peko goes incredibly hard for 60 minutes. Offers upside as a three-technique lineman or rotational tackle in a conventional defense.
