With the 5th pick in the Windy City Gridiron Staff Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals take...

Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU - And here's what he had to say about his selection:

Patrick Petersen is widely considered one of the best prospects in the draft. While defensive backs may not be the Cardinals largest priority they can't pass on this level of talent. He also possess the size and strength to play safety while having the speed to be a top corner in the league. Having played in the SEC he has played against top level talent and should be NFL ready from day one. He will instantly be an upgrade on special teams and as Bears fans we all know the impact that that can have. While it may not address their top needs this is a pick that the Cardinals make for sheer value.

Many scouts agree, Peterson might be the best prospect in the draft. Some even think he has a shot at going #1 overall.
