Whatever. I trust my eyes and what I've seen. At either CB or FS, Peterson will be a dominant player.
Hell call him a safety.... but he's a safety that can come up and guard a WR 1 on 1 - and THAT is valuable! I say let's just go ahead and cut the bull and trade up for him. I'm ready for some excitement.

1st and 2nd get us to Arizona. Would they be willing to trade down? Would we be willing to give up the 2nd? I suspect there are a number of teams that would be wanting to move to their spot so it may take more than it 'traditionally' would.

Default Re: Patrick Peterson

Call him a DB then. That guy in the backfield changes the game.

It would be unreal if that guy ended up a Texan. That would be an inspired move by this organization, nothing less. He looks like Andre Johnson in defensive form.

Yeah, you still gotta go find another pass rusher (or two) minus a couple picks. So what.

And then sign Asomugha while we're dreaming. Peterson/Aso at CB and move Quin and Jackson to safety. Championship.

I can't see us giving up a second and drafting a corner with all the needs we have on the front 7.

Also considering how many good free agents there are in the secondary available.

After draft, you will definitely know whether or not the Texans are going to spend in FA.

What is the big deal if he does play FS? Point is, he is an immediate boost to the team. Big, fast, and scary with the ball in his hands. I would argue that he is even more valuable at FS due to the fact that he can play the centerfield role and have more opportunities for picks.

Actually, think about it- Draft Peterson as a FS, sign Aso to stupid money (you have to pay to be the best), and BOOM- starting secondary of Aso - Peterson - Nolan - Quin. Not too bad in my opinion.

I think KJ would look a whole lot better with Peterson behind him and if we had a vet opposite......

This. If it's really going to get everyone's panties in a bunch, ask him to drop a few LB's. Not that big of a deal. Elite talent is elite talent is elite talent.

It's like people are forgetting what he did at LSU and against one of the top WR in the last decade. He put up numbers at the same weight, returned kicks at the same weight. Prince didn't have any interceptions. Weight is a number that doesn't matter; the only number that matters for a DB is turnovers.

0, 0, 0, 8, 1, 1, 1, 0, The career of Nmadi Asomugha.

I think your not quite right in that assesment.

I guess that's fair. Though I did want Revis instead of Okoye. I also didn't follow the draft much when Asomugha came out. With that said, I guess it's also important to look at passes attempted against and pass break ups and completion % against.

Peter King:

The hot prospect: LSU CB Patrick Peterson.

He's probably the one player teams might consider trading up in the top 10 to get. I had Houston moving up to No. 7 to pick him in the first round in my mock draft last week; this week, ESPN's Todd McShay had Houston moving up to number five, dealing with Arizona, to get Peterson. I've been told in the past couple of days that Houston GM Rick Smith is loathe to use so much draft currency to move up from 11 to five or seven to get Peterson (it would likely cost him the Texans' second-round pick to do so).

Let's assume the number two corner on many boards, Prince Amukamara, is available at 11. If you're Smith, you ask yourself: Would I trade Patrick Peterson for Amukamara and any one of three options at positions of need with pick number 42 in the second round -- the third wide receiver (maybe Maryland's Torrey Smith), the first safety (UCLA's Rahim Moore), or maybe the second running back (Mikel Leshoure of Illinois). That's a tough question. The gap between Peterson and the next corner would have to be huge for Houston to do that.

Why would Smith be considering drafting a RB?

Sometimes these national 'experts' confound me.

because, he's Rick Smith. I was tempted to insert RB DeMarco Murray into a Texan Mock Draft myself, but I actually never did a Rick Smith Texans mock draft only a couple group efforts & my own personal opinion mock draft. DeMarco would be a great addtion however to our RB group & if the Texans have him on their board as 3rd round value if he's still there in the 4th they just may go ahead & call his name. I think this is the approach they used with TE position I could see them adding quality depth @ RB as well

Default Re: Patrick Peterson

I am on the record as being pretty anti Aldon Smith, but I would be much much more disappointed if we brought in a high round RB.

With Ben Tate to add to an already effective stable of backs and with so many other glaring needs.....

I would lose all faith in the direction of the franchise.

Falcons are making a strong move for #6 to get Julio so that may put a wrench in other Peterson moves unless they gt to 5.

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/n...-headlines?r=1

Quote:
Calling the scenario "likely," Jay Glazer predicted late Thursday afternoon that the Falcons would trade up to No. 6 to draft WR Julio Jones.
Glazer confirmed previous reports by SI's Peter King and NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora that the Falcons are trying "very strongly" to move up, and now he's going a step further. Glazer believes the trade has a "very strong" chance of happening as long as Jones or A.J. Green is there when the Browns go on the clock. Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff has been aggressively pursuing an offensive playmaker as the missing piece on his contending roster. Source: Jay Glazer on Twitter Apr 28, 6:04 PMPlayer Outlook
And they nailed it!!

Guess they wanted Peterson more. Surprising, as I didn't expect them to pick a db
