Pitt NFL Draft Projections: Nathan Peterman

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

With the NFL Draft practically here, I wanted to take some snapshot looks at Pitt players with the best chances of being drafted. Given that, you can now fully expect someone to be snagged in a late round that I don't cover.

First up is arguably the guy that will go the highest - quarterback Nathan Peterman. Peterman really went from an off-the-radar guy to someone that skyrocketed up draft boards. What he accomplished last year will do that, though. After a season in which he competed with Chad Voytik for time, Peterman had a great year with 27 touchdowns and only seven interceptions, while throwing for nearly 3,000 yards. When you consider that he didn't even have Tyler Boyd anymore, it was really a strong year.

At 6'2", Peterman doesn't have great size. But what he did on the field last year and his readiness (Jon Gruden recently called him the most pro-ready starter) have GMs apparently very high on him. Many reports have Peterman as a 2nd to 3rd round pick.

Where do you think he lands?
