Former Pitt quarterback Nathan Peterman played alongside offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty in this weekend's Reese's Senior Bowl. While Peterman didn't have a massive day, he had a strong showing as his draft stock continues to improve.
Peterman got the bulk of the playing time under center on the North team as they lost 16-15 to the South. On the day, he was 16-23 for 153 yards and a touchdown. Peterman did not throw any interceptions and he had a solid 139.8 Quarterback Rating.
There was quite a bit of discussion regarding Peterman this week and his NFL Draft stock. He's gone from a guy that was probably considered an UDFA at the beginning of the season to what looks to be a mid-round pick now. Some projections even have him going as high as the 2nd or 3rd round. This is a similar situation to when Tom Savage found his stock soaring before the draft. He eventually slipped a bit and went in the fourth round, but he was another guy who was sort of off the radar earlier before seeing his stock jump.
Peterman's stock won't rise dramatically just on his play in the Senior Bowl, but his strong showing definitely didn't hurt him.
