The Arizona Cardinals have one of the best No. 1 cornerbacks in the game in Patrick Peterson, who can keep opposing top receivers quiet as well as anyone. However, they don’t have anyone close to his level playing opposite him, especially with veterans Justin Bethel and Tramon Williams both leaving in free agency.

Peterson hopes the Cardinals will be able to address that glaring hole at some point during the offseason in order to further solidify the team’s defense.

“If we can find a solid No. 2 corner to make it kind of difficult for a quarterback to pick and choose which side he wants to go on, then that would make not only me but the defense a lot better,” Peterson said per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. “So, in terms of if we have a No. 2 over there that he knows he can consistently win on, why would he try 21? So, I feel if we get us a solid No. 2 corner like we did in Tramon, because he played solid for us the last eight games, then we can be very, very dangerous and also present more opportunities for me.”

The Cardinals were able to get a couple of corners in Bene Benwikere and Lou Young in free agency. But while the two are experienced in new Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks’ defensive system after playing for him in Carolina, they are not exactly the caliber of corner Peterson is hoping for.

There are unlikely to be any corners left in the free-agent market of that quality, either. So if the Cardinals have any hope of getting the No. 2 corner Peterson is asking for, they may need to find him in the draft.
