Derek Pegues S Mississippi State #

Ht: 5'10
Wt: 209

Excellent athlete. Very productive throughout his career. Experienced at cornerback and safety. Has experience as a punt returner. Good ball skills. Reads the quarterback well.
Undersized. Lacks the bulk and overall strength to be a reliable tackler. Below average speed. Will be limited to safety in the NFL, and even at that position his speed is suspect.
Pegues lacks the build of an elite safety but he does have some upside. His athleticism and playmaking ability are above average and could make him a steal in the 4th or 5th round. He's a solid option in the mid-rounds because of his ability to contribute on special teams. He may not develop into an elite safety, but he has the potential to start at the next level.
