North Quarterback Nate Peterman, Pittsburgh Panthers
Nate Peterman from Pittsburgh is a two-year starter who started his collegiate career at Tennessee as a Volunteer quarterback appearing in 11 games with two starts.
With over 5,000 career yards passing Peterman showed good ability to make smart decisions throwing the ball to the enemy just seven times in 2016 while tossing 27 touchdowns.
He’s a tough player who isn’t afraid to tuck the ball and run when the opportunity arises and doesn’t lose anything on his short and intermediate passes when rolling out.
He’ll have to learn to slide more in the NFL than he did in college during his 158 carries as a Panther.
The biggest thing this player can show this week and in the game is his resiliency and coachability as he looks to catch the eye of a team looking for a late round quarterback.

A good game this weekend could catch the eye of the Buccaneers as they look to bring in competition for the back-up position heading into 2017.
South Quarterback Davis Webb, California Golden Bears
The Buccaneers seem destined to lose back-up quarterback Mike Glennon, and Davis Webb from Cal may be the closest comparison in the draft and certainly at the Senior Bowl.
Playing from the shotgun it’ll take time for the lanky passer to get comfortable under center which will make him a developmental prospect from the beginning for NFL teams looking to bring him up to the line of scrimmage at all.
As a passer he holds the ball a bit too low for my liking and leaves himself susceptible to having it knocked out of his hands by rushing linemen.
On deep passes Webb has good touch and places the ball nicely.
Teams like the Bucs will want to see what he can do in the intermediate passing range and look for good decision making as well as ball security.
