The prevailing thought around the NFL coming into this weekend was that Oklahoma RB Adrian Peterson was an extremely tough guy with a warrior's mentality. He proved that Sunday when he performed, as planned, with the other running backs, even running scintillating 40 times, despite the fact that his 20-year-old half-brother was shot seven times and killed Saturday night. We hear that Peterson's performance, despite likely not getting much sleep at all, has cemented his standing as one of the top three picks in the draft.
