Patrick Peterson   #21 DB

Height: 6-1   Weight: 203   Age: 27

Born: 7/11/1990 Fort Lauderdale , FL

College: LSU

Experience: 8th season

High School: Ely HS [Pompano Beach, FL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.5

Selected By: Arizona Cardinals

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 5 (5)

Pick Analysis: Peterson is built like a safety, has the speed of a corner and is an elite playmaker. He has the explosion and range to play on an island and the instincts to be effective in zone heavy schemes. He has elite ball skills and is a shifty runner that is a nightmare to take down in the open field. He is a supremely confident kid that always looks to make plays, but at times can get burned by ball fakes and double moves. Peterson is a freakishly talented football player and might very well be the first corner back in the draft's history to be taken No. 1 overall.
