Biography: Two-year starter who posted 41 tackles/2.5 tackles for loss/2 sacks as a senior after posting 52/5/1.5 the prior year.
Positives: Undersized college defensive lineman who gets the most from his skill. Plays with good pad level, gets leverage on opponents and keeps his feet driving up the field. Quickly changes direction, chases the action and stays with plays. Works his hands to protect himself.
Negatives: Lacks great first-step quickness. Undersized and easily neutralized at the point of attack. Possesses just a short burst and cannot pursue the action out to the sidelines.
Analysis: Peters was a hardworking defensive lineman on the college level, but he lacks the physical skills to be anything other than a backup in the NFL. He could get consideration as a three-technique tackle if he improves his playing strength.
