Peterson is a versatile player filled with explosive play making ability who can hit hard and strong. Coaches can use his versatility all over the defense, using him both at inside linebacker and outside linebacker. He comes off blocks very well and has the instinct to track the ball and chase it down, as well as swatting a pass or two down with an outstanding vertical leap.
