Just curious, how much better is adrian peterson then the other running backs in the nfl?
Ive always considered RB a very low priority. I think the line makes or breaks the back.
LT, QB, CB, those are high priority positions... IMO.
RB, you can grab a guy in the 5-6th round, and make a superstar pretty easy, based on the line you have, IMO...
That being said, i think adrian peterson is diffrent. I would spend a 1st on him, high 1st. I think he is special.
Obviously he is the best back in the nfl..
my question is, do you think its close? how big is the gap?
i think adrian is a top 5 back maybe in the history of the nfl. top 10... idk.. very very special. easily best back of the last 10 years. top 5 in the last 25....
im a cowboys fan so not being a homer.. he is just one of the very few players i have total respect for, that i really root for outside my cowboys..
so, on topic, is it close?
adrian peterson vs. arian foster? or alfred morris? Chris johnson? mccoy? bush? charles? gore? anyone..
how close? how much of a gap? would arian plus a 1st round pick equal peterson?
