All this demonstrates is that he's good enough to play on Sundays. I didn't see anything that screams 2nd overall pick. Fix the D-Line, first...

He's going to be "The Next Great" cornerback. The kid got skills you can't teach.

When he runs a 4.5 do we still want him?

I can live with PP but at #2 he is a safe pick from a organization that needs to hit with draft picks after McFail.

There's no way he runs a 4.5. A sub 4.4 is a real possibility.

I was looking forward to the cotton bowl this year to see Peterson, who I hadn't seen play yet. And then he was not really that good in the cotton bowl. So, how can we draft him above his value if he doesn't show up in the biggest game of his life?

I'd rather maybe use a third on Jimmy Smith if he falls that far. I don't like to see colorado stars going somewhere else. I think he is ranked in SN ahead of Peterson and Amukamara.

Just saw on NFL network combine coverage that they had Peterson going #1 to the panthers (Billicks Mock I think)

I bet Eddie Royal, Wes Welker, that punk from the Eagles (which one?!?), anybody with great quicks and cuts would eat him up. But, he sure looks like he would be an outstanding safety...

You're crazy if you think Jimmy Smith is going ahead of Peterson, or Amukamara either for that matter.

You don't judge a guy by one game, you judge him on totality of talent and the rest of the intangibles he has. Peterson is the closest thing to a sure bet in this draft.

That footage of him against Alabama is probably close to what youre going to get from him as a pro. He made some plays and got beat on some plays.

The thing I noticed that gave me a little worry: his hip swivel isnt smooth or quick. Hip swivel is what makes Champ the best cover DB I have ever seen. Peterson has the speed and the athleticism, but he's a little stiff through the trunk. Mainly because he's so big. Thats why big guys usually dont play corner. It also explains why he had some trouble with Julio Jones on slants and fly routes.

If Denvers going with a 4-3 zone, Patrick Peterson will not be picked. It likely will be Dareus or Fairley.

I didn't say he was better than Peterson....but some guy at Sporting News did. That's why I said maybe Smith might drop to the top of the 3rd round and we could nab him.

Jimmy Smith will likely sneak into to the top of the first round... unless he gets injured or has some major red flags that come out over the next few weeks, he isn't going to make it to the 3rd round!

There's the invincible Peterson getting beaten on two separate occasions. I think he's one of the most overrated prospects I've seen since following the draft back in 2004. He's similar to me to Antrel Rolle, who busted as a corner but became a pretty good FS. Wouldn't be surprised if PP follows a similar career path.

I beg to differ.

In video one, theyre running some underneath zones. I initially thought he got beat in man coverage there, but watch the dime corner on the opposite side of the field and how he squats on the underneath zone. Peterson is doing the same with the safety over the top and ALMOST has the vertical to get the ball in his hook zone coverage anyways

Video two he absolutely gives up the TD, though. I remember that one well

Yup, in the replay they show the coverage on your first video closely.

Watch the outside corner on the opposite side of field squat just as deep as Peterson did even though both of "their" players were still going. They were releasing the players to the safety.

It wasn't poor safety play either. Just a good delivery into the seam of the zone by the offense.
