Cardinals take LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson

Mississippi v LSU Getty Images

With the fifth pick in the NFL draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, bolstering their defense with a player who’s ready to contribute right now.

There was talk that the Cardinals might draft a quarterback, but the decision to go with defense in the first round indicates that Arizona expects to acquire a veteran quarterback, perhaps Marc Bulger.

Peterson is a great talent, and pairing him with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie gives the Cardinals an outstanding pair of cornerbacks.

The only question is whether the Cardinals may some day regret passing on a quarterback.

    The clowns on ESPN keep on giving away the pick before Goodell gets to the podium. I don’t want Chris Berman telling me the pick. Can’t they shut up for another minute.

    Please tell the networks to stop talking about Blaine Gabbert. It’s getting really annoying.
