    Watched LSU play the weekend and he was not the player that stood out in my opinion playing Alabama. Watch out for that Defensive lineman for LSU.

    well you want to see him up against a real good WR with a real Good QB to judge him as a CB. Did not see that in that game.

    He will be a top-5 pick in all liklihood, but he is not Deion Sanders or Mike Haynes right now.

    I watch alot of LSU football games, and he seems to get beat alot for a guy that should be a shutdown CB. Has great physical talent but he needs more work.

    Seems to rely on his physical talent, with proper coaching and technique (which I would never expect from Dave Campo) he could be a great player.

    He faces some top notch WRs and systems in the SEC, so I think he could start day 1 for us like Newman.

    I just think safety and interior linemen are a much bigger concern for us right now than CB. We can get a competent replacement for Scandrick later in the first day.

    I'd have to agree with you. ....but for all we know Jerry will trade out of the first day for 1,000 7th round picks.

    No kidding! Where's the video of Julio Jones making Peterson look like Scandrick?

    I will first say that I have never actually seen him play. I dont really watch much LSU football.

    Based off of the highlight videos he seems very much in love with himself. These type of guys (if he really is) can sometimes be uncoachable so he better be perfect and ready to contribute immediately.

    All that said i dont know him or his character obviously. Just an observation from watching him on the 1 1/2 minute highlight video.

    I do agree with the poster that said unless he has champ bailey or dion sanders ability then I would rather get interior help. We obviously need some defense secondary also. Or maybe its scheme.

    Seems to get beat alot? goaline slant to Jones

    Please put out the evidence. He hardly gets tested due to his press coverage.

    He could turn into a star at the next level with better coaching and improve his technique.

    i dont think he is worth a top 5 pick.regardles we should not pick in the top 5,we need all the picks we can get to fill a lot of holes.

    Then if he's not we're screwed cause nobody outside of Luck would be.

    But that's why the draft is fun, we all have different opinions and nobody actually knows whom will turn out great.

    I love it when people use the term "shutdown corner" as if any corner from Deion Sanders to Champ Bailey literally shutdown wide receivers on a consistant basis.

    Here's news folks, Deion Sanders got beat and with more frequency than you think.

    Now I'm not taking away anything from him, because he was absolutely good. Rather, I'm telling you reality.

    I watched the Alabama/LSU game last week and have it recorded. Peterson wasn't even covering Julio Jones the entire game, so it's way to simplistic to look at Jones' game stats and say "see, Peterson couldn't cover him."

    Also, there were receptions that Jones made where he sat in the zone that LSU was running. It happens.

    Peterson was covering Jones on that TD reception. My answer....oh well, it happens. Julio Jones is a good player in his own right. When a QB puts the ball where no one but his receiver can grab it, sometimes you can't do anything.

    You don't pick DB's that high for return ability and he doesn't make enough plays in coverage to warrant that selection. He reminds me a lot of Antrell Rolle.

    If we are set to pick CB, I would prefer to trade back and get the kid from Nebraska who is actually a better man coverage cornerback.

    He doesn't remind me of Rolle at all.

    I agree..

    The NFL CB he reminds me of is Chris McAlister. Almost the same type of players..

    I can see the similiarity to Antrel Rolle only in body types, not in ability.

    I`m glad that I am not the only one that has noticed this. I live in SEC country and watch him every week. The Bama game was not his best game by no means but he is not the shut-down corner that some think . He is flashy on returns and has the ability to cover, but he is not the player that some would like to think. He has the raw tools , but he has a long way to go. Bama went right after him. I think Saban realizes that Peterson is no Deion. I did noticed some tackle attempts that he missed by diving at the ankles . That is the only Deion traits that he showed.

    The same Sr. Nebraska CB that got TORCHED by a So. WR (although he is the next great OK St. WR) in the OK State game? Only if it's not a Top 10 pick. Peterson is better. And, honestly, something tells me that he is going to get A TON of looks as a FS in the NFL because of his physical play. safeties are becoming as (if not MORE) important than corners in today's NFL. The 2010 Cowboys are definitive proof of that.
