Patrick Peterson

School: LSU
Position: CB
Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons, winning all-Conference honors after each year and All-American honors after the 2010 campaign. 2010 Bednarik Award winner and Thorpe Awarded winner. Defensive totals last year included 42/4/6 when he also averaged 29.1 yards on 32 kick returns and 16.1 yards on 26 punt returns with two touchdowns. Sophomore defensive numbers included 52/2/13.
Positive: Incredibly athletic defensive back with a tremendous amount of upside. Physical in all aspects of the game, aggressively works to defend the pass, and gets vertical over opponents to come away with the interception. Breaks down well, plays with suddenness, and flashes on the scene out of nowhere. Jams receivers at the line, mixes it up with opponents throughout the play, and can run with receivers anywhere on the field. Fast enough to recover from mistakes and has an explosive burst to the action out of his plant. Strong open field tackler.
Negative: Must improve the consistency of his backpedal as he is quick to revert to side shuffling down the field. Does not display good route recognition in zone coverage.
Analysis: Peterson has been a terrific college cornerback who also became a game-breaking return man. He has opposing quarterbacks purposely staying away from him, and on the occasions they challenge Peterson, he handles opposing receivers. Peterson is a bump-and-run cover corner with a terrific amount of upside. He will also get consideration at free safety and should only get better as he polishes off his skills.
