Patrick Peterson


Peterson is the closest thing to a sure thing future pro bowler in this draft. He would step in day one as a starter and improve this team a great deal on both defense and special teams as a returner. Patrick Peterson on Roddy White twice a year? Yes please.

I could see it happen, and I'd be just fine with it. PP7 is going to be a future all-pro imo.

I can't rule out Gabbert, though I don't want him.

I'm okay with that, and it guarantees we'll have the #1 pick again next year.

You could put AJ Green in there if you Are going on a more sure fire pick IMO. Still think biggest need is a DT and should go w/ the man that knows how to get out of the woods.

I would be okay with that, he and Green seem like the cleanest prospects.

Um, drafting a project QB is less likely to make us better next year.

We definitely need an elite CB to deal with the gunslingers in our division. Great pick.

I love PP but he doesn't do anything to fix our QB problems.

Our defense is about 3 or 4 players away from being a Rivera-type, #1 in NFL defense. Make it great now with lower risk players. Peterson at CB means they will throw more to Gamble, the guy they avoided last year. Then draft a DT at 65. Nevis, Austin, Wilkerson--I think one drops to us. Add a free agent DT. Set to go. 2 draft picks. Do not underestimate the impact of a stellar defense on offensive playcalling and risk taking.

With the other draft picks, build some depth at OL, DE, and possibly WR.

The offense needs to mature. They are young. A veteran leader is needed here for a while. Be patient and we will find a franchise QB soon. Heck, you would have to be patient with Cam anyway.
