Meet Greg Peterson



Greg_petersonPosition: DT/DE.

Height: 6-5.

Weight: 286.

College: North Carolina Central.

Highlights/stats: After two seasons at Hinds Community College (Miss.) and two at Division II North Carolina Central, Peterson was tabbed a "Hidden Gem" after he ran a 4.73 in the 40 yard dash. As a senior, he ranked 13th in the NCAA with 19.5 tackles for loss, including 7.5 sacks. He also had two fumble recoveries.

The verdict: Peterson will need some time to develop in terms of technique, but his combination of speed and strength make him a versatile addition to the Bucs' defensive front. He played mostly tackle in college, and the Bucs see him as a candidate to play under tackle, though he has the ability to move outside.
