    I think Amukamara is better than Peterson if we're looking for a CB.

    I think if we're wanting Peterson to play FS, he's a good pick.

    There's also no way Cam Newton gets past Arizona at #5 unless he has a tank of a workout.

    I don't see what reason there is to think that other than Peterson's weight, care to elaborate?

    I'm not saying that may not be the case, but it seems a lot of people have made up their mind Peterson can't play CB, and it's not even based on his play but his physical statistics.

    Peterson at Safety would revolutionize our D. Prince at Corner would be a great addition as well. Then we could move Newman into the nickel and have another open competiton between Scandrick and Jenkins for the other starting CB position. I think we HAVE to pick up OL in the second. Maybe pick up Rahim Moore or Dunta Williams in the third to bolster the Safety posiiton if either are available that late.

    Because it is humanly impossible for him to cover smaller quick receivers at that size. No change of direction/stiff hips.

    I haven't seen lack of change of direction or stiff hips listed among his weaknesses in his "scouting reports".

    So? There good for a guy his size. But not good enough to cover small quick receivers, as opposed to a smaller cornerback.

    Cam Newton
    25% of teams will say he is top 10 material
    25% will say he is 1st round material
    50% will say he is >2nd round material

    So it's a crapshoot with him If one of the top 10 plans to take a QB and also fall into that 25% or so that like him that much, then you have a match.
    That's a lot of what-ifs.

    He's one that'll be fun to see how he turns out.

    I didn't see "good for a guy his size" listed as a pro of his either. Bad hips would probably go a long way in getting you removed from the conversation as the top rated corner in the draft.

    HE DOESNT HAVE BAD HIPS. There just not good enough( especially at his size) to cover a Steve Smith. A guy his size is limited in what he can do as a corner.

    I don't agree with that but everyone has their opinion.

    Okay, so every corner that can't shut down Desean Jackson and Steve Smith should be a safety. Gotcha. :D

    Nnamdi Asomugha is 6'2" 210.

    But as usual, my point isn't that Peterson is destined for greatness. My point is not to rule a guy out based PURELY on his physical statistics.

    I don't know how many guys have to prove something like that silly before people get it.

    Saying a guy CAN'T do something based not on his play, but because he weighs more (or less) than you'd like is just silly.

    Two of the very best are close, but not quite that big.
    Asomugha and Cromartie.
