SB Nation New York 2011 NFL Mock Draft: With Seventh Pick, San Francisco Selects ...

Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU.

I have no idea how this draft could work out any better for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are desperate for help at the cornerback position, and Peterson is the top-rated corrnerback in the draft. Not only that, many draft boards have Peterson ranked at the No. 1 overall prospect in the entire 2011 NFL Draft. To find that value sitting at No. 7, matching a position of dire need, means the 49ers have struck gold here.

Draft Countdown summarized Peterson this way:

Extraordinary talent and physical specimen with a rare blend of size and speed who profiles as a shutdown corner at the next level.

Peterson is 6-foot, 219 pounds. In addition to being the best corner in the draft, Peterson is a tremendous punt and kickoff return man who also profiles as a player who could successfully move to safety later in his career. If Peterson is available in the real NFL Draft next Thursday, the 49ers should sprint to the podium to get this pick to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
