CB Patrick Peterson – LSU

Patrick Peterson by far is the most elite athlete in this years draft. Peterson is actually a better athlete than cornerback, but he’ll need to show more consistency in his production in order to live up to his NFL draft status. His stock is boosted by the fact he was an outstanding returnman at LSU. He’s willing to make the violent hit, and excels in run support. Has solid instincts which help him plant, drive and close quickly on passes infront of him. He has the ability to stay on the receivers hip and flashes the ability to reach in front of the receiver and break up the pass. Enjoys playing physical in tight man to man coverage, and has a raw backpedal but he needs to improve his footwork. He can make up for most of his flaws with his other worldly skills. Peterson is a gifted athlete and likely a top 10 pick.
