Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals believes that he is the best Defensive Back in the NFL but we all know that crown belongs to Seahawks Defensive Back Richard Sherman. Honestly i don’t think Peterson is even comes second to Sherman because their is a young guy whose  been shutting down top receivers and his name is Joe Haden. Haden during his 4 year career has grabbed 14 int, 193 tackles, and 3 force fumbles which all is more than Patrick Peterson. Also last season Patrick Peterson allowed 7 TD passes and covered 55% of #1 receivers while Haden allowed 6 TD passes and covered 65% of #1 receivers which means Peterson had it easier and Haden still managed to allow less TD passes. The numbers are close but it looks like Haden is one step ahead of Peterson. Haden recently resigned with the Browns for 5yrs $68 million dollars. His contract is less than Peterson’s contract but according to the numbers Haden’s talent is better than Peterson. Numbers also says that Peterson has allowed receivers to gain 688 yards and Haden has allowed 557 yards. Many fans may choose Peterson over Haden but if you ask me I’ll go with the guy with the most talent and physical ability.
