No, Patrick Peterson hasn’t been on the field yet in an NFL game. But the expectations for his play, even as a rookie, are high well beyond here in Arizona.
Turns out Peterson is the highest-rated rookie in the upcoming release of “Madden ’12,” the top video game out there for the NFL. The game uses a scale of 1-100 (with 100 being the best) to rank players on a multitude of attributes, and the way those interact with all the other players allows for games to play out. Peterson is an overall 82, but his speed is 97, his agility 96 and his acceleration 93 — all par for the course when you run a 4.34 40 at the combine, I suppose. He is ranked higher in press (90) and man (89) coverage than zone (82) which fits his profile.
Hopefully, real-life PP matches up to virtual PP.
