1. Who's better, Marshawn Lynch or Adrian Peterson?


Adrian Peterson is an explosive and dynamic runner with outstanding speed and quickness. The former Oklahoma star is a talented workhorse who will invigorate any offense with his big-play ability, but Lynch's versatility and overall ability make him ideally suited to play the pro game. As a natural cutback runner with excellent speed, quickness and vision, he has a slippery running style that allows him to consistently pick up tough yards between the tackles.

In addition to being an outstanding runner, he is a polished route runner who has the hands to be used effectively in the passing game. With the majority of NFL teams incorporating parts of the West Coast offense, Marshawn's overall skills will allow him to have a bigger impact on the next level.

no, lynch's overall abilities will allow him to have an easier transition into being an overall back in a pro-style offense as an everydown back, doesn't mean anything in the long term against peterson, who looks to be improving his receiving this offseason.

If he's really got that kind versatility, then he sounds like a not as fast but still fast version of Reggie Bush, but a back who, unlike Bush, could actually be a teams feature back with the ability to run up the middle and still pop it
off tackle.
