Coming into the league, he was known as a tall, upright runner possessing an ultra-rare combination of speed, strength, agility, size, and vision, along with a highly aggressive attitude towards contact.[2] His rare talent as both a great breakaway and power runner has often raised comparisons to past legends, including Eric Dickerson, O.J.

Professional career

2007 NFL Draft

On January 15, 2007, Peterson declared that he would forego his senior year of college and enter the 2007 NFL Draft.[27] Concerns about his injuries suffered during college were noted by the media and potential NFL teams.[13][6][16][28] He started twenty-two out of thirty-one games in his college career and missed games due to a dislocated shoulder his first year, a high ankle sprain his sophomore year, and a broken collarbone his final year at Oklahoma.[6] His durability was a consideration by at least two teams in their draft analysis[28], which impacted selection position. Prior to the 2007 NFL Draft, Peterson was compared by professional football scouts to Eric Dickerson.[11] ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. said of Peterson, "You can make the argument, [Peterson] is the best player in this draft, if not, certainly one of the top three."[29] The 2007 National Football League Draft took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on April 28 and April 29, 2007. ...
