Our last two college covers features Adrian Peterson, Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. Looking back we at BFS are patting ourselves on the back for making some pretty good selections. Despite being only a rookie in 2007, Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings established himself as the NFL's premier running back. Besides leading the league in total rushing yardage at midpoint in the season, he broke the NFL's single game rushing record with 296 yards on November 4 in the Vikings' 35-17 game against the San Diego Chargers.
As for the dynamic duo from the University of Arkansas, 2006 and 2007 Heisman runner-up McFadden finished the season with 1,725 rushing yards and 15 TDs, 164 receiving yards and one TD. and 123 Passing yards and four TDs. Jones scored his second 1,000-yard rushing season with 1,117 yards and 11 touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how these two great athletes compare to the standard set by Adrian Peterson.
