1.

 

- 21 Personnel, Pro Set, FB aligned strong

Prospect Comparisons

Patrick Peterson – Charles Woodson

It’s tough to find a comparison for Peterson, as he’s one of the most physically imposing prospects at his position in the history of the draft. Former Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson was the last corner prospect to come close to Peterson’s ridiculous blend of size and athleticism at the position. The comparison comes from the roles in which they’re suited for in the NFL – especially in Woodson’s last two seasons in Green Bay. Peterson has some fluidity and technique issues, and is overly-reliant on his size and speed. A player with his rare blend of unique skills would probably be best utilized by moving him all around – matching him up with bigger split-ends in two receiver sets and using him as a rover-type nickleback in obvious passing situations.
