    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.

    [​IMG] Buzzmaster: He's here! Let's go!

    Justin Kuhn (Evansville,Indiana): What was the most physically challenging part of the NFL Combine?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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!

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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.

    Mclean (Orlando): First of all, I have to say that you are an amazing runnig pulverized the other teams's defenses day in and day out. What is your motivation for running so hard?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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.?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: I wouldn't mind playing for the Texans but I don't see that happening.

    Ron (Houston): 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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?

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: 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

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: The friends and the relationships I have built with everyone. I think the NFL will have a different feel.

    [​IMG] Adrian Peterson: Thanks for all the questions. I appreciate the interest. Take care everyone!

    The Texans would be smart to take Peterson if he fell.

    I friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go with him to drive three hours outside of Austin to this little town in East Texas called Palestine to watch this 16 year old high school phenom runningback. I told him no, because I have a life. He said "In 8 years you'll pay $80 a seat to watch him run." I regret I didn't make the trip. I remember watching him his first game at OU, and nearly falling out of my chair. The greatest combination of power and speed I've seen in a college runningback since Bo Jackson.

    Why do people always get their panties in a wad when you draw similarities between current players and former players, no matter how harmless? You would think someone could draw a differentiation between someone saying "Things about him remind me of _______" and "This guy is going to be as good, if not better, than ________"

    But, no, sadly not.

    For the future, if I say "Tony Romo, like Montana, may be even more accurate rolling out than he is in the pocket", I"m not saying "OMG !! TONY ROMO IS AS GOOD AS M<ONTANAAA !!#*@#!!! HE'S GOING TO WIN 4 SUPERBOWLS !!!"

    BTW you are totally right about AD... his combination of power and speed are rare.
