No, I wouldn't do it. Peterson is a great back when healthy. In college, he breaks more tackles than he will in the NFL and he runs with such a straight up style he will probably be injured regularly. Of course, with that said, Eric Dickerson had the same style and had an outstanding NFL career.
Now, if he dropped to the Cowboys pick, #32 in the first round, I might draft him.
