Patrick Peterson Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'1 - 222 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
This season he had four interceptions (which he returned for 134 yards), six pass breakups, a blocked kick, and 1.5 sacks. Peterson averaged 29.1 yards on 32 kick returns and averaged 16.1 yards on 26 punt returns, two of which he returned for scores. He won the Jim Thrope Award, the Chuck Bednarik Award, and was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year and SEC Special Teams Player of the Year by the conference's coaches.
His combination of size and speed really is incredible, as he stands at 6'1'' and 222 pounds. Peterson can be physical at the line of scrimmage while also matching opponents' best receivers stride for stride. With experience to boot, he heads into the NFL with basically no question marks. Peterson should be the first cornerback off the board and that will likely come with one of the first three overall picks.
