TTB Rating:

If you’re befuddled right now and don’t know who Zach Peterson is, don’t feel bad. He spent his first four years in college at Furman, where he made 16 catches for 251 yards and 1 touchdown.

Then he transferred to Michigan last year, where he played mostly on special teams. But he was named Special Teams Player of the Week against Illinois, and he was named Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year for the 2022 season. So he must have been doing some things right.

Now Peterson enters his sixth year of college and he’s had some minor successes at the FBS level. His value is obviously on special teams and on the scout team, but if he can keep giving Michigan’s defense a good look in practice, that’s a valuable asset to have on the team. And he should get in some games on special teams coverage.

Prediction: Special teamer
