And I don't know what's the point. CBs get beaten all the time, even the top prospects. I think Peterson is the best CB in the draft, with Prince coming in a close 2nd. Giving up some passes to a few good college WRs doesn't mean they got exposed or anything.
I view the two prospects (Peterson and Prince) the same way you do, 1 and 1A.
I don't think we could go wrong with either of these players. I like each prospect for different reasons....
Patrick Peterson: I like his size as a CB (I also think he could be a dynamic FS...but that's another day), his ball skills, aggresiveness and want-to
. He's also a physical player will look to make a play in the run game.
Prince Amukamara: Love his technique and natural ability. He's a player that may get better once he gets to the pros ala Darelle Revis once he gets with a professional staff. Prince is smart, physical and more than willing to come up in the running game. I don't think he's as tall as he is listed on many websites/publications. Regardless, he's still has more than adequate size for cornerback in the pros.
