When the Arizona Cardinals selected Patrick Peters

first_imgWhen the Arizona Cardinals selected Patrick Peterson fifth overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, they did so with the hopes that he’d become one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.After a rookie season that saw the former LSU star reach the Pro Bowl based on his punt return prowess, it appears the 22-year-old is well on his way to making the team quite happy.Through three games Peterson has just six tackles and one interception, but as ProFootballFocus.com points out, his pedestrian statistics are not due to a lack of quality play.
