Why we should NOT take Patrick Peterson w/ the #2 overall

Everyone is talking about how Peterson is such a giant, giant man beast of a CB....but here's why I don't think we should take him w/ the #2 overall....


Here's the past 10+ years of CBs drafted in the first round, first overall corner w/ their corresponding draft spot.

7       Joe Haden
14     Malcolm Jenkins
11     Leodis McKelvin
14     Darrelle Revis
15     Tye Hill
6       Adam Jones
8       DeAngelo Hall
5       Terence Newman
5       Quentin Jammer
21     Nate Clements
15     Deltha O'Neal
7       Champ Bailey

Even our own champ bailey was not selected until 7th overall.  Moreover, of this list of 12 guys who would you want to pay #2 overall money to? Last year Suh was paid a five-year, $68 million contract with $40 million guaranteed. that's $13.6M/year. Is there anyone on that list worth that much? To that I say heeeeeeeeeeeeells no. I know, I know but Patrick Peterson is like a football jedi master of kung fu panda proportions.  Well, Stink always says something I believe in, "football is built in the trenches" and he's not the only one that believes that. I think we either go w/ DL w/ the #2 overall, or for the love of Mr. Bowlen's bank we trade down and get Dareus and another draft pick out of this.

 

I've heard Bowers is a freak of nature, and I saw what Fairley did to oregon, and I saw how awesome Dareus was against MI State.  So I say to you, they may take our lives, but they'll never take......OUR D LINEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
