Patrick Peterson Receives Honorable Mention Among Top NFL Young Talent

There are a lot of talented players in the NFL today, although many of them usually take a few years to acclimate to the physical and mental aspects of the game. Still, there are some players who blossom early, and they make their presence felt quickly.

Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com files this report of the ten best up-and-comers in the league under the age of 25, and although no Arizona Cardinals make the list, one comes close in Patrick Peterson.

Peterson's talent cannot be denied. He was emerging as one of the most lethal punt return threats in the NFL last year and was probably one of the most dynamic special teams weapons out there. There are still questions about how far he has to go as a cover corner though, which probably precluded him from being placed on this list.
