NEW ORLEANS—LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson hopes to make history. And, when it comes to the 40 yard dash, Peterson has already made his mark.
Monday, at LSU pro day, Peterson chose not to run. He ran a 4.34 forty at the NFL combine last month. Said Peterson, "I didn't want out and pull anything trying to stress myself running a 4.2.
Saints head coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis also attended. Said Loomis, "we have a lot of respect for this (LSU) program. It is a chance for us to get out of the office and visit a program that has sent a lot of players to the NFL."
LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell was the first pick of the 2007 NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders. That year, LSU had 4 players picked in the first round.
