There will be much more soon, but the Cardinals got LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson with their first round pick, a player who many thought was the best player available in the draft.
Peterson said he is “shocked” but he is wearing a red tie and red handkerchief, so how shocked can he be?
Knowing coach Ken Whisenhunt, I wouldn’t expect Peterson to be anointed a starter, not with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Greg Toler around. But Toler likely will be the long-term nickel guy with Peterson and DRC as eventual starting tandem. Peterson can be a punt returner too, and maybe kickoffs (although I keep the Hyphen there if it’s me).
