was not selected in the 2015 NFL Draft and recently signed a free agent contract with the Carolina Panthers.

Peters is confident that he will show the Panthers the same player that played at a all-conference level at Clemson.

"I feel I’m going to make this team," says Peters to the Charlotte Observer. "I don’t just set my goals to make the team. I want to win the Super Bowl, and in order to win the Super Bowl I have to better myself. So I’m just coming out every day, trying to get better and be the best that I can be. I want to help any way possible, whether it’s coming off the bench, playing limited snaps or all special teams. Whatever it takes."

Peters is determined to do the extra work to show the coaching staff that he is dedicated to making the team. He has been staying late after practice trying to get extra work in.

"You have to be hungry at this level," he says. "Everybody doesn’t get this opportunity; it doesn’t come around much. I feel I have to take advantage. God blessed me with this ability, and I’m not going to let Him down."

Peters had 106 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions for 15 yards, two quarterback pressures, 27 pass breakups, two caused fumbles and one recovered fumble at Clemson.
