Nathan Peterman will become the best quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft when it’s all said and done.

Nathan Peterman out of Pittsburgh is projected as a second or third-day pick in most places for the 2017 NFL Draft, but he’s easily the most pro ready.  First and foremost, he played in a pro-style offense at the University of Pittsburgh.

Secondly, he can read the entire field.  Third and finally, he throws with accuracy and anticipation that most of the others don’t, yet.

When he transferred from Tennessee to Pittsburgh in 2015,  showed the college world what he was capable of.  Peterman completed 61 percent of his passes in 215, and also had 20 touchdowns and only eight interceptions.

While his completion percentage dipped a little bit in 2016, it was still 60 percent.  However, his touchdowns went up to 27 and interceptions dropped to seven.

He also has a completion percentage of 46.2 percent on deep passes, which is excellent.  You need to have that in your arsenal to be successful in the NFL.

When it comes to throwing the football, he throws receivers open, rather than waiting for them to get open.  Peterman can hit the receiver in stride and on the hands.

Other quarterbacks have the “it factor” and the “wow factor.”  Peterman has the stuff you need in an NFL quarterback.

The NFL game is played from the pocket, and he has all the tools to play there effectively.  Peterman can even step up to avoid the rush while keeping his eyes downfield.

Many people get overlooked in the draft process and turn out better than anticipated.  Peterman will make people wish they had taken him.
