  • Patrick Peterson Scouting Report
    By Greg Cox

    Strengths:
  • Size, strength to play the physical game
  • Works well in press coverage
  • Fluid hips; runs with receivers
  • Elite speed and uses it to recover
  • Football intelligence; anticipates routes
  • Great ball skills; leaper
  • Excellent punt, kick and interception returner
  • Played against the best in the SEC
  • Versatile enough to play safety
  • Confident with short memory



    Weaknesses:
  • Looks for the big play; backfires sometimes
  • Run support needs a little improvement
  • Not as impressive in zone coverage
  • Smart quarterbacks could fool him
  • Needs to work on technique discipline

    Summary: Patrick Peterson is one of the top prospects to come along at the cornerback position in years. His size led some to believe he should move to safety. While he has that ability, he clearly has the speed to stay at corner - which he will. Like the legendary Deion Sanders, he can hurt the opponent on all four downs after showing what he can do on punt returns in his final season at LSU. As with many freak athletes, he needs to rely less on that ability and be more disciplined.
