Scouting Report: OL Stephen Peterman

The Cowboys selected LSU offensive lineman Stephen Peterman with the 83rd pick in the 2004 NFL DRaft. "He's a nasty blocker that excels in a small area," notes NFL Draft Expert Tony Pauline.

Name: Stephen Peterman School LSU Year 4Sr
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 312 40: 5.56 Pos: G

Bio: Three year starter named as a first team All American and All League selection last year. Started his LSU career on the defensive line.

Positive: Nasty blocker that excels in a small area. Quickly gets off the ball, explosive at the point of attack and easily turns defenders from the action. Quick with his hands, jolts opponents with a punch of his arm and stays square, fighting hard throughout the action. Disciplined, intelligent and immediately picks up assignments. Anchors in pass protection and a masher that uses all his assets to the fullest.

Negative: Stiff, lacks footwork in space and the ability to slide laterally. Not effective on the move and an average athlete.

Analysis: A tough guy with a good head for the position, Peterman has been a productive college guard that plays with the mentality of a defensive lineman. Naturally strong and explosive in his lower body, he will be an asset for a power running offense.
