Pre-season report:

Peterson is a guy who plays more of a fullback role for the Tigers, not really catching a lot of passes from the tight end position. He had 198 yards on 16 receptions last season, going without a touchdown though he does have two career scores to his name. Obviously playing for LSU, he has to be able to block somebody if the offense is going to have success, so that is something he is pretty good at. At this point, he is a fringe draftable player who will be on NFL radars because of the college he comes from and his size. Highly recruited WR out of high school who has a lot of potential as a pass receiver, but probably didn’t choose the correct school to catch passes at. Not to say that LSU is a poor passing school, but it’s certainly not what they are known for.
