Patrick Peterson 5th Pick 2011 NFL Draft

Peterson, Patrick LSU 6002 219 4.34 Junior entry.

Arizona Cardinals

Two-and-half year starter. The top player at any
position in the 2011 Draft in our opinion. Big, fast, athletic,
flexible, strong, intelligent, confident, and competitive. As an
additional bonus he has exceptional punt return skills, averaging
over 16 yards per return. As a kickoff return specialist he averaged
a gaudy 29.1 yards per return. It is doubtful that he will return
kickoffs if he is a starting corner. Good foot quickness and
change of direction ability. Can stick his foot in the ground and
drive on the ball in front or plant and go get a ball in the air. He
can drive and snap off quickly. Has recover ability. Sticky man
cover ability. Physical in press man to man. A smooth athlete
who can accelerate to top speed quickly. Closing and catch-up
speed. Built like a running back. Attacks the football with
outstanding eye-hand coordination. Can match up on opponent’s
top receiver. He locked horns with Alabama’s Julio Jones three
years in a row. Plays square. A top level competitor who can
play the run or the pass equally as well. An explosive player who
will look back for the ball while leaning into the receiver. Won’t let
a receiver off the line.For complete report see: Ourlads Guide To The NFL Draft.
