It was another banner day for the SEC. LSU's DB Patrick Peterson was picked at #5 by the Arizona Cardinals. The SEC had all of the top five selections except for Denver's pick at #2 (Texas A&M's Von Miller). The SEC racked up a total of 11 first round draft picks.
Needless to say, I love the pick by Arizona. According to a local paper in Tuscon, Peterson was the best player available on the Cardinals' board even though they didn't necessarily need a DB. They do need a punt returner. Peterson can certainly step in at that role.
