2011 NFL Draft: Arizona Cardinals Select Patrick Peterson

With the fifth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson.

Peterson was regarded by many, including Jerry Jones, as the top talent in the 2011 draft. Blaine Gabbert had been linked to Arizona given the shoddy QB situation in Arizona, but in the end the Cardinals decided to select one of the top talents in the draft, and somebody who looks like a pretty good bet to be a good pro cornerback.
