ATHLETE
: Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
COMPLEX SAYS
: As a rookie, Peterson broke the single-game rushing record as he ran for 297 yards on 30 carries while scoring three touchdowns. The Vikings beat the San Diego Chargers 35-17. Did we mention that the Raiders could have picked Peterson No.1 overall in the 2007 Draft but opted for JaMarcus Russell instead? Yup, that's a fail.
