Patrick Peterson ready to learn — quickly

Aug 2, 2011, 3:35 PM | Updated: 4:54 pm

Patrick Peterson was the fifth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, but even he knows he, well, doesn’t know everything.

“I definitely have a lot of things to learn, but that’s going to come in due time,” the former LSU star told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday. “I have a lot of faith in [defensive backs coach Louis Cioffi]and [defensive coordinator Ray Horton] with getting me prepared and going out there and making plays for this defense.”

That’s going to be the trick, quite honestly. Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t exactly keen on giving rookies playing time, but he may have to in this case.

With only Greg Toler, Richard Marshall and Michael Adams as experienced corners, it will be on the coaches to get Peterson to a point where he can contribute, and they’ll have to do it quickly.
