Adrian Peterson because he does more than goalline carries like Jacobs and Alstott. Based on his ability last week, he is better than a lot of the starters in the NFL.

No mention of Jarred Payton....he has some skills and there are not exactly iron men ahead of him on the depth chart.

He could really impress with the full package of running, receiving and blocking skillz!

The best back up running backs in the NFL are:
Chester Taylor
Najah Davenport
Larry Johnson (when he was one)
DeShaun Foster

For any of these backs to make this list I see them as a Running back capable of starting on an NFL team.

Besides the pedigree I haven't seen anything from Payton that in any way shows he could be a starting RB for an NFL team.

Well just have to see how he does if he gets more opportunities in upcoming weeks.

ahh, thank you, the son of walter has finally made it to te NFL, i think he could be an ok back, he just doesnt have the experience in the nFL, and will take a lil time to get used to the NFL, but he could be good, also, Cedric Benson, he could potentially have a starting job somewhere, and be good, im surprised noone mentioned him.
