If I am taking a pure RB, I'll take AP.
If I am looking for a better overall package: running and receiving, I'll take D-Mac, who can pass the ball as well.

I like AP better though.

I'll take Peterson easily, I don't really see anything that McFadden does better except maybe throw the ball :roll:

McFadden isn't as powerful and frankly I don't think he's faster either. Not a game changing receiver, and Peterson is well above average in that area. Frankly, I don't think McFadden is that level of a prospect.

Peterson, though isn't staying healthy a talent?

I don't know what to think of McFadden. He's really not built like a running back at all. He's like 6'3", 205 pounds. How long is he going to last in the NFL?

If we were just discussing pre-draft for both guys it would be closer, but I would lead to Peterson who has a between the tackles burst I like better than Mac,


but...

Being that Peterson has had 2 games alone this year that will go down in vikings immortality I do not think this is much of a competition. Considering that those 2 games happened when there are only 5 games this year AD had 20 or more carries you need to know that Mac will be good, but Peterson is scary.

The injury thing is overrated. His knee injury was not due to style, or prior injury, it was based on a hit that would have happened to anyone.

Is McFadden as good of a prospect as Peterson was coming into the draft? Quite possibly. Would I expect McFadden to light the NFL up the way it turns out Peterson did? Nope.

I still dont see the explosion on the field like peterson. Time will tell, the 40 was impressive though.

BTW, I saw it, but if it makes you cool to come call me out because of irrelevant 40 times, then more power to you.

Put pads on them...unless Mac plans on running in shorts the whole time.

I am not saying it was. What I am saying is we saw his secondary burst last year with pads. ANd his film looks faster than McFadden's film.

Perhaps the SEC tapes all their games at a different framerate?

All the people that Knock Reggie Bush because of his speed, McFadden is a whole lot more thin, he's only 5 pounds heavier, but he's about 3 inches taller, and has longer limbs, and didn't lift nearly as much at the combine.

McFadden is somewhere between the two, lacking Reggie's explosion, and not even coming close to the power of Peterson, who is pound for pound one of the best tackle breakers and power guys you will ever see.

peterson is probably the best rb prospect to come to the nfl since bo jackson.

mcfadden is good, i just dont know how he'll do in the nfl. he seems to have a lot of reggie bush in him.
