Larry Fitzgerald Thrilled With Patrick Peterson Pick, 'Can't Miss Player'

When Larry Fitzgerald says anything, Arizona Cardinals fans listen. If he wants the field at University of Phoenix Stadium painted pink, you better believe there would be a full discussion about it. Whatever it takes to keep Larry happy as he enters the final year of his contract with only a promise of extension discussions to come.

Fortunately, Fitzgerald is thrilled with the Cardinals draft pick, Patrick Peterson.

Fitzgerald expressed his pleasure to Mike Silver in this Yahoo! Sports interview:

"He's a can't-miss player, a real difference-maker, and that's exciting. Things have changed in this league. It's a receiver-quarterback game now. That's the name of the game and the wave of the future.

We have to go against Sam Bradford twice a season. Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning - the teams that have those guys are the teams that'll be in the thick of it every year. And you can't match up with these teams if you can't stop them outside."

And yes, if Larry wants to take batting practice with the Diamondbacks every day so he can improve his swing -- make it happen.
