Seeing is believing with LSU's Peterson

We saw LSU's Patrick Peterson come within a few yards of setting an SEC record for combined kickoff/punt return yards in the opener against North Carolina.

In doing so, he reminded us all just how explosive an athlete he really is.

As a cornerback, he's equally spectacular. Did you see his two interceptions last week in the Mississippi State game?

If not, here's a video clip thanks to LSUsports.net.

Peterson already has a punt return for a touchdown this season. I wouldn't bet against him also taking an interception back for a touchdown. He might even get the trifecta with a kickoff return for a touchdown.

ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper said recently that Peterson is maybe the "top size-speed combo" in this entire draft class.
