Adrain Peterson is the best back in the draft, and this was a great pick by the Minnesota Vikings. Chester Taylor and Peterson will make a nice 1-2 punch for the Vikings, who with playing indoors at the Metrodome could have a great running game. Peterson is the home run hitter, can catch the football and could very well be the rookie of the year for the Vikings.
The quarterback spot is still iffy with Tavaris Jackson, but the chance to get a 6-1, 200 pound back with the speed of Peterson, there was no way that the Vikings should have passed on him for Brady Quinn. It is rare in this league to be able to get a back with the type of power and speed that Peterson has. Now of course there is the chance of a big injury, and his collarbone is a concern, but the upside on Peterson outweighs the injury that Peterson suffered last season.
