He would, but I don't see any chance he makes it to us if he keeps playing the way he's playing.
When you've got a dual threat like that, strong cover man with terrific return ability, you're pretty much a lock to go in the top 10 or close to it, especially with an incredible size and speed combination like Peterson has.
The kid is 6-1 210 and could clock in the high 4.3's ...
If Peterson excels this year, he could go top 5. Our best bet might be Prince Amukamura. He may not be as fast, or have the versatility to return kicks, but he's a terrific, physical, cover corner. (Yesterday, his opponent had only 120 yds. passing total, 0 TDs, 1 INT).
That would be the reasonable target, but even he may go too high with a strong combine. We've got a long, long way to go, so we'll have to wait and see what happens.
