The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that they hosted Pittsburgh QB Nate Peterman and Eastern Washington OLB Sam Ebukam for pre-draft visits.
- Aaron Wilson reports that Peterman also had workouts lined up with the Bills, Chiefs, and Patriots.
The Steelers have been doing work on quarterbacks in this year’s draft class, and Peterman could end up being a mid-round consideration for them.
There has been a lot of a talk about Ben Roethlisberger’s future, given that he took a few months to contemplate retirement. With this in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Steelers come away from the draft with a developmental quarterback prospect.
Peterman previously worked out for the Eagles.
Peterman, 22, actually spent two years at Tennessee before transferring to Pittsburgh for the 2015 season. In total, Peterman threw for 5,236 yards while completing 60.1 percent of his passes to go along with 47 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He also contributed 525 rushing yards and five touchdowns.
Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 5 quarterback prospect in this year’s draft class.
