NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein noted that "both parties might have struck gold" with the Jets' selection of Clemson WR Charone Peake in the seventh round.
"The late rounds are the perfect spots to swing for the fences," Zierlein wrote, "and with Peake's size, speed and ability to learn under Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, both parties might have struck gold." Zierlein disciples with photographic memories might recall that the analyst pegged Peake as a possible draft steal at the end of March. We believe he could find more success in the NFL than he did during his time at Clemson. May 7 - 6:41 PM

Jets selected Clemson WR Charone Peake with the No. 241 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Peake (6'2/209) spent one season as a full-time starter at Clemson, posting a 50-716-5 (14.3 YPR) receiving line for the national champion runner-ups. A power player who can block and create yards after catch with desire and brute strength, Peake's stock got a bump in Indy with a 4.45 forty and 35 1/2-inch vertical. Peake's college production underwhelms, but he has an NFL-level combination of build, movement skills, and physicality. He has a chance to become a better pro than college player.
Apr 30 - 6:19 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein tabbed Clemson WR Charone Peake as a potential draft steal.

Zierlein waxed nostalgic, writing, "I remember watching tape of Peake and becoming very excited about what I was seeing." The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder struggled with injuries at times during his Tiger career, but managed to suit up for 14 games last season. Predictably, he posted his best collegiate numbers in that space, catching 50 passes for 716 yards and five touchdowns. Zierlein went on to note that "[i]f his tape from 2015 is any indication of what he's capable of, I think an NFL team has an opportunity to add a big, fast wideout with starter's ability and a skill set that allows him to work all three levels of the field." CBS Sports' Rob Rang called him a "relatively raw route-runner" earlier in March, but also likes him for his "exciting blend of size and explosive athleticism."

NFL Media draft analyst Bucky Brooks noted that Clemson WR Charone Peake is "kind of a clone" of suspended Steelers WR Martavis Bryant.

"Big, tall, fast, physical, can make plays down the field," Brooks said on NFL Network's Path to the Draft. Analysts around the land have been tossing forth speculation as to what receiver(s) the Steelers might draft to replace the suspended Bryant. "They need a guy who can just stretch the field, I believe he is one that can do so. They do a great job of developing younger guys on the practice field," the analyst concluded. He's not alone in thinking of the 6-foot-2, 209-pound Peake as an option here, with CBS Sports' Rob Rang likewise forwarding the idea thanks to "his exciting blend of size and explosive athleticism."

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang believes Clemson WR Charone Peake's "greatest attribute is his exciting blend of size and explosive athleticism."

Rang speculated that Peake would be an interesting draft-replacement for the suspended Martavis Bryant because both players hail from Clemson. That's a cute connection and piece of trivia, though it won't have any actual bearing on the draft. On the field, Peake is a "relatively raw route-runner" in Rang's eyes. But about that athleticism. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder shredded the 40-yard dash on his pro day with a recorded time of 4.38 seconds, this after shredding the 40 at the combine to the tune of 4.45 seconds.

Clemson WR Charone Peake improved his 40 time to 4.38 at the school's pro day.

Expect the forty times to be all over the map at pro day workouts. In fact, we have seen some reports of 4.29 for Peake. The Clemson receiver ran a 4.45 at the NFL Combine and the rest of his workout produced a slightly below average athlete. On the field, Peake boasts a 6-foot-2 209-pound frame and is super physical after the catch.

Clemson WR Charone Peake had an 85-percent similarity score with Tyrone Goard based on Combine athletic testing.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Peake showed off his wheels in Indianapolis, running the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds while logging a vertical jump of 35.5 inches and a broad jump of 122 inches. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein noted in mid-February that the former Tiger boasts a "rare combination of size and speed." That's all well and good, but for Peake's sake, we hope that his career doesn't pan out the same as his NFL Scouting Combine comparable here. Tyrone Goard went undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky in 2013 before latching on briefly with the Bengals. He quickly bounced out of the NFL, though, and has spent the proceeding two seasons playing in the AFL and CFL.
Mar 3 - 7:00 PM

Clemson WR Charone Peake is currently tied for the No. 5 WR spot with OSU's Michael Thomas and TCU's Josh Doctson in Lance Zierlein's rankings.

This is the highest we have seen Peake ranked, and he is slotted above the likes of Sterling Shepard, Braxton Miller, Pharoh Cooper and Rashard Higgins. Peake has the "rare combination of size and speed that can often be found in number one wide receivers," Zierlein writes, stating the Tiger's medicals will be important in order for Peake to be selected in the top three rounds. Both Zierlein and an area scout he spoke with brought up Peake's small hands as a concern.

After Thursday's Senior Bowl practice, Clemson WR Charone Peake said, "We felt like we dominated the [National Championship Game against Alabama]."

"Those couple two or three [big Crimson Tide] plays took over and kinda overshadowed our play," Peake said. "The scoreboard didn't show it but I felt like we dominated the game." "Dominated" might be a little strong, but the Tigers did outgain Alabama 550 yards to 473 yards. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Peake actually played with some of his new Tide friends over the Senior Bowl practice week, saying, "It was weird today, Jake Coker was throwing me the ball while Cyrus Jones was guarding me. So that was kind of weird. We're all cool about it."

Clemson redshirt senior WR Charone Peake hauled in four balls for 60 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-13 win over Wake Forest.

Peake has been getting more involved in the offense recently, posting 11 catches for 180 yards and a pair of scores in total over the past two games. He's a talented player whose never been able to show consistency because of a pair of debilitating knee injuries. It would really help his odds of getting a long NFL look to continue playing well down the stretch.

Clemson redshirt senior WR Charone Peake hauled in seven balls for 120 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 37-27 victory over Syracuse.

For a player HC Dabo Swinney called "as talented as any player we've had at Clemson" over the summer, would you believe this was Peake's first ever 100-yard game in his fifth year on campus? Peake, whose last two seasons were wiped out by knee injuries, will get a chance in the NFL because of his natural talent. The only question is if his body will hold up.

Clemson HC Dabo Swinney said redshirt senior WR Charone Peake was "as talented as any player we've had at Clemson."

Swinney has coached Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins, so that's quite the compliment. "I know how that sounds because of all the guys we've had, but I really and truly believe that," he said. "He's the healthiest he's ever been. He's faster than any receiver that we've had. This kid's got special talent. If there's a guy that's the so-called 'breakout' player, he'll take it to another level." Peake's last two seasons have been wiped out by knee injuries.

Clemson redshirt junior WR Charone Peake underwent minor knee surgery Friday and is expected to be ready for the opener.

"Charone was having a great summer, but tweaked a knee on Wednesday making a reception," Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said. "The surgery was successful and his ACL is fine. He will probably miss the first week of practice and then we will go from there. We expect him to play against Georgia in the season opener." Peake, who was competing for a starting WR gig, was lost for the season in Week 2 last year with a torn ACL. The NCAA granted him a medical hardship waiver over the winter.

Clemson junior WR Charone Peake will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

Peake might not be the biggest name on the national landscape, but this is a major blow to Clemson's offense. The team lost major playmakers in Andre Ellington and DeAndre Hopkins after last season, and were still searching for that second weapon opposite junior Sammy Watkins this year. Junior Martavis Bryant should be the one to step up for the Tigers.

Clemson sophomore Charone Peake will start in place of suspended sophomore WR Sammy Watkins.

Peake will join established starters junior DeAndre Hopkins and senior Jaron Brown. "They all have to step it up. I don't think one guy replaces Sammy Watkins, but as a group they certainly are capable of doing that," head coach Dabo Swinney said. Peake is reportedly the fastest player on the team not named Sammy Watkins, and with the Tigers planning to speed up their offensive attack, the sophomore could impact Clemson's first two games.
