Strong Points: Four-year starter. Quick, sudden, fast and explosive. Very good instincts. Solid in all phases of coverage, be it man, off or zone. Very aware. Plays the ball well and has strong hands. Quick reacting in run support and a good tackler.
Weak Points: Size -- there are many NFL clubs that will not draft corners shorter than 5-foot-10, and Peavy might not measure 5-9. Will struggle vs. tall receivers.
The Way We See It: Peavy's tape is excellent, but his size isn't, which will hurt him come Draft Day. Still, he is a very good football player in whom the league will take notice. He has great feet, quickness and good speed. His body control is outstanding, and he can jump. He can line up adeptly in press man, off man or zone. His size limitations don't stop him from coming up quickly to support. If Peavy was 5-11, he would be drafted a lot earlier, but his size likely relegates him to the slot, where he still will play very well. No, he isn't for every team, but Peavy will be a solid for selection for one.
