If not, then throw a name out there that trumps him.
I'd say yes.
He plays offense (QB, RB, WR) , defense (DB), special teams (KR/PR).....it's hard to argue.
Normally someone would get on here and throw Harvin's name out there, but that obviously is not the case since his hamstrings are made of wet toilet paper.
PP could have been an All-SEC Wr at LSU, also All-SEC Safety at LSU...All-American at too many positions, yep, he could have been.
His hands are amazing for a typical CB. A lot of CBs end up being a CB because they didn't have great hands in order to make it as a WR.
He's strong, physical, as smart as they get, technically as sound as they come, work ethic is through the roof. So beyond the pure athleticism he brings to the game, he has all the intangibles as well to make him extra extra special.
In his short NFL career, he has become the game changer we thought he would be. Which is difficult at the CB position, but he is that much of a force.
Of course, his return ability and now his offensive assets he offers makes him unlike anyone we have ever seen in NFL history.
For anyone who wasn't aware, Patrick Peterson became the only defensive player since the NFL merger in 1970 to both complete a pass and catch a pass in the same game. The gloves he wore and the ball that was used in that game were sent to Canton, Ohio.
Other special players in the NFL are Adrian Peterson, Calvin Johnson, Jimmy Graham, LeSean McCoy and someone to watch out for is this kid in Cleveland named Jordan Cameron (TE).
Jimmy Graham is unlike anything I've ever seen before.
Laron Landry is up there in terms of athleticism. All that muscle AND runs a 4.3 40.
Realistically, Peterson would excel at any position like you guys have said but as of right now he's not a polished receiver at all and probably wouldn't be good enough to start. But that's totally fine since he's already an all-Pro CB and returner.
No, but he is so gifted athletically that Arizona is using them in their offense more and more. Against the Saints he ran a very successful 11 yard end around play. So many ways you can assimilate him into your offense to maybe bust a big gain or better yet touchdown, which is coming soon.
We remember that last year at LSU, every time he touched the ball, we thought he was going to take it to the house.
I'd say there is no question, he's thrown a pass, caught a pass, defended a pass, ran back kicks, made tackles, blocked. I mean damn, he's bugs bunny.
no question about it, Honey B was the best player at LSU, but Peterson by far the best athlete.
