Andrew Peacock scouting report

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

A look at Detroit Lions undrafted free agent Andrew Peacock and how he fits into the team's plans in 2014.

WR Andrew Peacock (Appalachian State) - Undrafted free agent

During the draft, the Detroit Lions attempted to solidify their depth at wide receiver by selecting Eric Ebron, who is technically a tight end, and TJ Jones, who figures to be used primarily in the slot. The Lions also added slot receiver Andrew Peacock as their only undrafted free agent at the position.

Measurables

Height: 5-foot-9 | Weight: 195 pounds

Stats

2010: 3 catches, 43 yards
2011: 48 catches, 564 yards, 3 TD, 8 carries, 44 yards
2012: 79 catches, 795 yards, 4 TD, 5 carries, 2 yards
2013: 78 catches, 706 yards, 2 TD, 2 carries, 17 yards

Random fact

Peacock played quarterback in high school and threw the ball three times while at Appalachian State. He went 2 for 2 for 17 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2012, but his only pass in 2013 was intercepted.

What the experts are saying

Detroit Lions Draft:

Sticky-handed FCS receiver with great explosive metrics (38″ vertical, 10′ broad jump, 7.00 3-cone) but plays at one speed and does not have great long speed. Will need to play in the slot, as he’s just 5’9″ and is much more quick than fast. Real longshot after the team drafted TJ Jones and already has Ryan Broyles and Golden Tate to play in the slot.

Outlook for 2014

Peacock's best chance at sticking around will be as a member of the practice squad. There is some uncertainty with the slot receiver position considering Ryan Broyles' health is a question mark, but the Lions drafted TJ Jones as the insurance policy at that spot. Unless Peacock outperforms Jones, it's unlikely that he will have much of a chance to make the 53-man roster this year.
