Adrian Peterson is the best running back in the NFL, and there is no one close. So when Adrian Peterson says a player is talented it means something, especially when you talk about another running back.
Peterson has been impressed with rookie running back Jerick McKinnon, calling his new understudy out of Georgia Southern the team’s most notable player during offseason workouts.
“He’s pretty impressive and there’s not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in,” Peterson said of the third-round pick, per The Star Tribune. “He’s been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style.”
