    LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson probably makes the most sense right now. Offensive line is definitely a bigger priority, but there's just not any of them worth taking anywhere near the top 5. There's a few guys in this class like Derrek Sherrod, Joseph Barksdale and Anthony Costanzo that have some nice upside, but all have their glaring issues. Trading down would probably be the best choice.

    But their secondary needs help and though Patrick Peterson isn't as polished as Prince Amukamara, his freak athleticism gives him as high a ceiling as any corner in the NFL. He also is pretty versatile, and if Terrence Newman and Mike Jenkins end up turning themselves around and becoming serviceable NFL starters again they could put Peterson at safety and let him fully utilize his absurd ability.
