Cardinals take Patrick Peterson
|04.28.11 at 8:33 pm ET|
The Cardinals selected LSU cornerback and Bednarik Award winner Patrick Peterson fifth overall, making him the third defensive player selected in the first five picks.
The Cardinals may have a potential need at quarterback, but they made the wise choice in selecting the best player in the draft (not the best player available, but the best player). Peterson is a physical specimen, and at 219 pounds, can handle anything that comes his way.
