Former LSU CB Patrick Peterson predicted a great 40-yard dash time (in the 4.2's) during the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine.
Well, he’s a Nostradamus.
The defensive back posted unofficial times of 4.32 and 4.37, which are amazing timings for a cornerback of his size.
Peterson (6-0, 219) figures to be selected in the top-10, perhaps the top-five selections overall, in the 2011 NFL Draft.
While some personnel evaluators believe he may wind up moving to free safety some day, NFL teams covet bigger defensive backs that can run.
