Arizona Cardinals Select Patrick Peterson With Fifth Overall Pick

With the fifth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson.

It is a smart, safe pick for the Cardinals. Patrick Peterson is, in my opinion and others, the best talent in this draft. To get the best player at pick five is a small steal for Arizona and fits their MO for trying to take the best available player.

Peterson is a special talent. He's big, fast, strong, and will make a big impact in Arizona for the next decade. Teaming up with Dominique Rogers-Cromartie and Adrian Wilson, Peterson gives the Cardinals the potential to have one of the best secondaries in the league. Peterson can also return kicks, if needed. All around, a great player and someone who will rack up the accolades over a long, lengthy career that will likely see him end up as a free safety when he gets older. Another great pick, even if Arizona didn't 100% need a cornerback.
