GM: Patrick Peterson ‘closest’ to Bo, Deion

“From an ability standpoint, I’ve never seen anything like him. He’s the closest thing in the league to a Bo Jackson, a Deion Sanders,” Keim said in an interview with TheMMQB.com. “I’ve seen him stand on the field flat-footed and throw the ball 65-70 yards. He goes out to practice as a wideout, and runs a 10- and 15-yard out as well as anyone on our team. His value to our team is really unparalleled.”
