Draft raisers and fallers, Corner Back.

Draft raisers and fallers, Corner Back.

I know, I know you can't draft players by using "Wonderlic" scores.

In almost  every mock draft or article I've seen, Detroit is wanting a CB.

So scouts are saying that LSU CB Patrick Peterson, is falling due to his VERY  low "Wonderlic" score (9), will he fall to 13 probably not.

From Yahoo Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=pfw-20110317_low_wonderlic_scores_ding_elite_nfl_prospects)

"Peterson plays like a low-test guy," one NFL decision maker told PFW on the condition he remain anonymous, "but [if] he's in 'cat' [man-to-man] coverage in the NFL, it's not as big of an issue as it will be for offensive guys."

"He's a press corner," another longtime evaluator said. "His strong suit is that he can run and press. He won't play for the Patriots, where he's disguising coverage after coverage, but I still think he can be a No. 1 shutdown corner."

A scout with deep knowledge of the kid said, "The more I'm around him, the more I love him even more. I love the kid, and I love the talent. But I don't like the way he plays with his back to the ball. He has an instinct issue, and I think it's tied to his mental [ability]. He can only handle so much. He's not a quick processor. It's a scary year to be drafting in the top 10 because they all have some issue."

 

Say Peterson falls to 13 and Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara is there also, what a dream scenario. Do you want a CB that may be limited to what his is now (Peterson),  or do you take a CB that is "smart" ("Wonderlic" score of 35) Amukamara.

 

Peterson was tied with the lowest score while Amukamara was among the top 10 highest.
