2011 NFL Mock Draft: San Francisco Steals Patrick Peterson at No. 7
Just How Good is Patrick Peterson Really?
To see Patrick Peterson drop to the 49ers here would be a huge boost for San Francisco. Many people consider Peterson to be the top athlete available in the draft but the teams picking above the 9ers here could all address different holes on their roster.
Peterson is a once in a generation athlete. He has cornerback speed with the size of a safety and he showed in college that he not only can help a team in the secondary but he is also an outstanding return man that will help out on special teams.
Peterson also had a combine for the ages that help assert himself as a top-10 pick. He ran a 4.3 40 while weighing in at nearly 220 pounds. That is a pretty incredible feat. But that’s not all, he also showed great balance during his position drills and he showed some real explosion coming out of a back pedal.
To be honest I do think Peterson is going to be a good corner but I think he is a tad overrated. He has the body and the speed but I don’t think he is going to step in and immediately show that he is one of the best corners in the NFL.
