ESPN's Todd McShay tweeted the more he watches Pitt QB Nathan Peterman, the more he likes.
"Full field read. Fast eyes. Ball is out on time and perfect placement," McShay wrote with a video of a play from a clean pocket on an inside breaking route with good timing with a throw over top of a linebacker in coverage. Peterman is loved by a number of media evaluators, namely Lance Zierlein, and some have suggested a second round pick could be in his future. Feb 20 - 12:11 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter tagged the Chicago Bears as a potentially nice fit for Pitt QB Nathan Peterman.

"Peterman could be attractive because of his experience in a pro-style offense at Pitt," Reuter writes. "While the former Tennessee Volunteer doesn't have a plus arm, it's strong enough to move an NFL offense." He likes the fit with the Bears because Peterman presumably won't have to go through extensive system growing pains (something that was noticeably an issue for Jared Goff's development with the Rams in 2016). The only real stumbling block here is that the Bears may well draft a quarterback on Day 1 or Day 2 as they try to turn their franchise around with a higher-upside name. Peterman will likely be drafted on Day 3.

Pitt HC Pat Narduzzi compares QB Nathan Peterman to Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins as a prospect, according to NFL Network's Mike Mayock.

Narduzzi's opinion on the matter holds weight, as he was on the staff that coached Cousins at Michigan State. A Tennessee transfer, Peterman migrated to Pennsylvania and was a two-year starter for Narduzzi. Peterman threw for 2,855 yards and a 27/7 TD/INT ratio for the Panthers in 2016. Like Cousins, he'll be available on Day 3.

An NFC personnel man told Rotoworld's Josh Norris that a former coach of Pitt QB Nathan Peterman's "displayed very little enthusiasm for Peterman’s game."

The personnel man told Norris that he was puzzled by the lack of buzz surrounding Peterman. Norris and the evaluator agreed that Peterman was the top passer at the Senior Bowl. The former Tennessee Vol threw for 2,855 yards and a 27/7 TD/INT ratio for the Panthers in 2016. Some believe Peterman is one of the class' biggest QB sleepers.

Jan 23 - 3:23 PM's Lance Zierlein believes Pitt QB Nathan Peterman could be an NFL starter.

Peterman has "the poise, accuracy and field vision" to earn that label, according to Zierlein. So many are going to try to find the next Dak Prescott, but that goal is impossible. Peterman, however, could prove to be a great value and is easily the top senior passer in this class. He was bumped up to the Senior Bowl a few weeks ago.

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 13-of-18 passes for 253 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Wednesday's 31-24 loss to Northwestern in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Peterman was forced out of the game due to a possible head injury in the second half of Wednesday's contest (replaced by Ben DiNucci, who threw a pair of picks), but even before he exited stage left, he was running hot/cold. He did connect with Jester Weah on a 69-yard scoring pass in the closing minutes of the second quarter, but he also threw a brutal red-zone interception in that first half. Assuming he can recover from his injury concern in reasonably timely fashion, the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder will hit up the East-West Shrine Game later this winter. He has also been invited to the Senior Bowl. Peterman turned in a fine 2016 campaign on the whole, throwing for 2,855 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio.

Pitt senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 9-of-18 passes for 251 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 76-61 win over Pitt.

Oh baby. Syracuse and Pitt combined to score 137 points, setting the record for the highest-scoring game in FBS history. In addition to his four touchdowns passing, Peterman added 79 yards rushing and another score. There has been a noticeable statistical uptick for the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder of late, as he has now thrown for at least three touchdown passes in each of his last three games. To be precise, he has notched 12 scoring tosses in that space.

Peterman has been shredding of late, with 10 of his 20 touchdown passes on the season coming in his last three games.

Pro Football Focus notes that Pitt's starting five along the offensive line have surrendered just four knockdowns through 10 games.

Per PFF, the Panthers line leads the country with a 92.9 pass-blocking efficiency rating. With a consistently clean pocket to work out of, senior gunslinger Nathan Peterman has been able to turn in a relatively mistake-free season, throwing for 2,114 yards with a 19/4 TD/INT ratio. After averaging 7.3 YPA last season, Peterman is up to 8.4 YPA for the 2016 campaign. He just put forth his best statistical effort of the season, throwing for 308 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's upset of Clemson.

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 22-of-37 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 43-42 upset of Clemson.

Peterman had done dependable work for the Panthers entering Saturday's showdown with the Tigers, pitching a 14/4 TD/INT ratio through nine games, but his performance against Clemson was a bridge beyond. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound gunslinger did the bulk of his damage -- at least on the touchdown front -- in the first half, when he squeezed off four of his five aerial scores. Both the five touchdown passes and the 308 passing yards represented season highs for Peterman.

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 19-of-32 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Villanova.

Peterman wasn't exactly smoking the Wildcats on Saturday, but he played well enough in a forgettable sort of way. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound senior tossed a nine-yard touchdown to RB James Conner with under 20 seconds remaining in the first quarter. He wouldn't strike again until the fourth quarter, when he found Jester Weah for a 16-yard score. Peterman threw for 2,287 yards with a 20/8 TD/INT ratio in 2015.

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman impressed a rival ACC coach with his 2015 play.

"I was impressed with the way Nathan Peterman stepped up and took control of the team," he said. "He was an unknown quantity, but he kept it simple and didn’t make a lot of mistakes. He’s not real flashy but he did a nice job managing the game." The 6-foot-2, 221-pounder is a pure game manager. He completed 61.5-percent of his passes (second in the ACC) for 2,287 yards and a 20/8 TD/INT rate last year.

Pittsburgh graduate QB Nathan Peterman completed 22-of-34 passes for 232 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-34 win over Louisville.

Pittsburgh exited the first quarter trailing 10-7. Then, Peterman happened. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound graduate gunslinger slung all four of his touchdown passes in the second quarter. In his last two games, he's thrown for a combined seven touchdowns. Overall, Peterman's racked up 2,008 yards passing with an 18/4 TD/INT ratio.
