Chat with Adrian Peterson
Adrian Peterson is the top rated RB in the NFL draft.
Welcome to The Show! On Wednesday, NFL prospect and former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson will stop by to chat about the NFL draft and his NFL combine experience.
He's here! Let's go!
Justin Kuhn (Evansville,Indiana):
What was the most physically challenging part of the NFL Combine?
I don't know. I have to say the workout and the RB drills was the hardest part. And running the routes too.
Matt : Two Harbors:
What current NFL running back do you most compare yourself too?
I would say LT, just as far as vision and cuts and how he runs the ball.
Jackson (Fort Sill, OK):
AllDay- Thanks for the memories in the Sooner state, we will miss you. My question is how/did your injury last year change your perspective and do you think any differently now? Best of luck, we'll be rooting for you from Fort Sill! HOOAH!
I keeps you humble really. It also makes you battle tested. It made me realize that i cannot take anything for granted because anything can happen in life.
First of all, I have to say that you are an amazing runnig back...you pulverized the other teams's defenses day in and day out. What is your motivation for running so hard?
I have a lot of things motivating me, losing my brother at a young age, but there are a lot of things that I went through at a young age that gave me the motivation I have now.
rocky (edmond, ok):
what number do you plan on wearing in the NFL if 28 is taken?
Whatever number they give me. It could be 00 for all I care.
Sean: Canton, OH:
Would you be disappointed if you slipped to the 5th or 6th pick in the draft even a possible 7-10.?
Yes I would be disappointed but I would also be glad to be picked in the first 10. I hope that doesn't happen.
Sonny, Bixby, OK:
Hey A.D. I saw alot of your games and wanted to thank you for three tremendous seasons at OU. Any particular NFL team you would prefer to play for?
I wouldn't mind playing for the Texans but I don't see that happening.
AD, what's up man! I'm gonna miss watching you tear the Longhorns to pieces! Anyway, what do you think separates your style of football from a guy like Reggie Bush or Marshawn Lynch?
My combination of power and speed.
Nick Dover, Pa:
I am among the perecntile that has you as the best player in this draft, i think you are the best player I've seen come out, how do you respond to those who rank you lower just due to fluke injuries? good luck AD
I don't know it is funny, people are entitled to their opinions. It really doesn't bother me.
Brian: (Philly, PA)::
Two back systems are gaining notoriety in the NFL, would you rather share time like Reggie Bush has done, or carry the load yourself?
It depends on the system. Of course I want to carry the ball, but it's up to the team and the system and who they have in there. So either one works for me.
Mark: Chicago, IL.:
First NFL Ride; Escalade or a Benz?
John (Noblesville, Indiana):
You broke my heart when you left OU...but it's ok. What do you look forward to most in the NFL?
Just playing against guys I have been watching on TV, like Ray Lewis. I love his passion, and to be able to go up against guys like that is what I look forward to.
Matt : Two Harbors:
What is the most underrated part of your game?
My ability to catch the ball.
Josh (Wakefield, Mi):
Hey Adrian nice talking to you Your great college years are now behind you, what will you miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most in the NFL
The friends and the relationships I have built with everyone. I think the NFL will have a different feel.
Thanks for all the questions. I appreciate the interest. Take care everyone!
