Peterson at the Combine

With the 2011 NFL combine wrapped up just in time for the potential NFL lockout, it might be interesting to look at how almost everyone's top-rated CB and top-four mock draft pick should or would work out if taken by the Broncos with the second overall pick.

Peterson was the top-rated CB going into the combine and certainly didn't hurt himself coming out.

Combine numbers:

40 yard dash: 4.34 seconds

Vertical Jump: 37 inches

Broad Jump: 10'6"

Three-cone drill: 6.58 seconds

And he did this carrying about 10 pounds heavier than his college playing weight, going at 219 pounds.

He and Prince Amukamara of Nebraska have blown the rest away, at least so far.

But this article will focus not only on Peterson the athlete, but also the position of CB and how taking Peterson with the second overall pick would or wouldn't impact the Broncos.
