It has nothing to do with being from USC, I'm just not as in love with him as the Gamecock fans here.
I don't want Coples, didn't want Quinn or Loafholt when he came out. Thought AP was too risky given his injury history, etc.
Adrian's Injury History? He was injured two times in college. Everyone thinks he was injury prone in college, when that is simply not the case. If you are an OU fan like I am, you know these things.
He played every game his freshman year. No injuries.
He played every game his sophomore year (had an ankle sprain for 3 games, but still played).
His junior year, he had the freak injury after 6 games where he dived into the endzone and broke his collar bone.
We are talking about a running back.. his knee's, his ankles, his feet are all perfect. Why in the world would you not want us to draft Adrian, other than the fact that we already had DeAngelo? Adrian was the surest thing at RB since... hell, no RB looked as NFL ready as Adrian did coming out.
HoF'r Marcus Allen said that Adrian Peterson was the first RB he has ever seen that looked like he could have come out of high school into the NFL.. he was that gifted.
