Peterson vs. Jones or Green

So looking at Green's and Jones's stats, looks like they had some real good games against LSU, but I'm not sure if Peterson was covering them the whole time, or not. Is anyone familiar with the match-ups able to provide any insight? Really curious how this prospect does against elite NFL caliber competition

I know that in his matchups against Jones, Peterson did pretty well in 09. I believe he even had 2 picks against him.

no he didn't. Jones had over 100 yards and a TD on 4 receptions. Peterson did knock down 3 passes. No INTs
found this on their matchup this past season, the guys at draftcountdown are usually a good read

Okay. I know he had a pick lined up on Marqueze Maze. And he had that pick on Julio that was called incomplete after review. BS call. Even though it's college, Peterson made a hell of a play getting his toe down on the sideline

Everyone gets beat...it's how often it happens is what makes one corner better than others.
There are no shutdown corners in college, the game is different.
What is projected is athletic ability, speed, and instincts in which he has superior talent.

His hips are like water.
He looks like Ed Reed on the field. In many ways.

Yeah, and this is why many people think his position will be safety. From a pure corner standpoint, Amukamara could be the better player. But Peterson has this "Ed Reed"-look that could make him special

To add to that:

Historically, CBs have been valued more highly than safeties. I think we have seen examples where an elite safety can have a greater impact than an elite CB + the fact that it is almost impossible for CBs to cover good WRs 1 on 1 anymore. QBs can avoid CBs but have to account for safeties esp the Ed Reed and Polamalu-caliber ones.
