Pitt QB Nate Peterman plans to workout for the Eagles

22 March 2017 DRAFT Eagles News

The Eagles plan to workout former Pitt QB Nate Peterman, according to Tribune-Reviews’ Chris Adamski.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect was a two-year starter for Pittsburgh, after transferring from Tennessee. Peterman decided to take his talents up north after he had problems unseating Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs for the starting job.

Last season, Peterman had his best season as a Panther, completing 60.5 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,855 yards, with a 27-to7 touchdown-to-interception ratio. As a junior, Peterman threw for 2,287 yards with 20 touchdowns.

The Philadelphia Eagles probably love the idea that Peterman already has experience in a pro-style passing attack. The Pitt signal caller is a well rounded talent, who flashes decent arm strength, accuracy, and mobility in the pocket. With the Eagles shelling out money for back-up quarterbacks the last two seasons, it could be time for them to develop a quarterback behind Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. If the Eagles are interested in his talents, it’s possible that Peterman goes any where from the third to fifth round of the NFL draft.

An evaluator recently spoke on Peterman with the MMQB:

“He reminds me a lot of Kirk Cousins in this sense: He’s not going to blow you away with any of his traits, but he can do everything you need.”
