  • Peterson > McFadden

    Perfect time for this post.

    As a prospect...Peterson was one of the best of all time IMO. All the way from HS to the pros the guy was never anything less than elite.

    McFadden = Elite prospect in his draft. Peterson = Elite prospect in draft history.

    BTW: Yes, I do like working with hyperbole.

    i like McFadden's trick play versatility but I can't make a real assessment until I see McFadden play an NFL down

      Peterson's lower center of gravity, stronger legs, similar speed, and overall body strength give him away as the better prospect IMO.

        I think it's funny that last year it was en vogue to take Marshawn Lynch as a prospect over Adrian Peterson. I'm just happy I've always felt that Adrian Peterson is the best RB prospect that I have seen with my own eyes.

          AD was def. the better prospect, imo but, Run DMC is the next best thing. Two of the best RB prospects to come out in years. I missed out on AD...I want Mcfadden.

            They were and are both solid prospects. I agree completely that comparing them now after seeing Peterson play as a pro is completely worthless. Nobody knows how well McFadden will adjust. IMO, the only thing that seperated them is Peterson injury history. If Peterson goes down with another injury and misses the rest of the season, does that count against him because that is the only reason he slipped out of the top 5 in the 1st place. AS PROSPECTS, they are about equal, as pros, that is a completely different story as it is with any rookie.
            And proud of it!!!

              McFadden will be great in the NFL, I feel, because he's doing well with no legitimate QB to distract defenses.

                Since I have been following the draft closely (2001), I would say Peterson is the best RB prospect ever.

                  ... this post is probably more useless than the one i'm submitting right now.


                  Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                    It seems like McFadden disappears in some games

                      when? He's nearly unstoppable and it shows on that stat sheet week after week.

                        I think this the perfect thread to come up at a time when the guy has a great game. ...????? whatever.... I wanna see longevity. With his history of injury and his upright style, he won't last 5 years unless things change.

                          Because we all know those guys in the hall of fame were undrafted crap bags....

                            OJ Simpson

                            All of those are better RB prospects that Peterson.

                            That was exactly what I was thinking. Peterson's biggest knock was injury concerns and they won't show up for probably some time.
