Peter Tverdov
6-3/268 Rutgers
4.83 Senior

Pros: Has a good motor and can make the stop in pursuit. Has a decent first step. Shows nice awareness and does a good job getting his hands up to bat down passes.

Cons: Gets engulfed at times at the point of attack because he's undersized for a tackle. Lacks the quickness to beat you off the edge.

Overview: Primarily plays inside in Rutgers 4-3 scheme, but probably projects much better to end at the next level. Probably fits best as an end in the 3-4. He's a high character player that had a career high 13 tackles for loss and 4 sacks as a senior.

NFL Forecast: He's a high effort player that could stick on a practice squad due to his motor and work ethic. Lacks upside down the road but could be a decent option in a rotation if he can get stronger and better vs. the run. Has a decent first step which should be able to help him get leverage, but he'll need to improve and refine his techniques first. You like him , but limited athletic potential means he's basically a fringe NFL player.

ATL Forecast: Tverdov might have a decent shot of competing for the Falcons as a LDE in their 4-3 scheme. He probably at best could hope to land on the practice squad, impressing the coaches with his motor. He doesn't have great upside, but could be a decent rotation option with some ability as a run stopper down the road.

Value: Don't draft him, but he is worth a camp invite.
