Today I was daydreaming while I was supposed to be writing my english paper for my final tomorrow. Then I started looking at highlights on youtube of football players that should be coming out next year. One player that crossed my mind was Alabama's Trent Richardson. This guy has the vision, speed, and more strength and better ball carrying than our very own Adrian Peterson does. Next year I believe Peterson will be hitting the 27 year old mark and he may start getting a little long in the tooth a few years later. So here is my crazy idea.
I say we use our own 1st rounder next year to draft Trent Richardson while trading Adrian Peterson, Christian Ponder, and our 2nd rounder to move up to whoever has the 1st pick of the draft and select Andrew Luck. Crazy right? But I mean why not speculate while theres nothing else to do?
We'd be adding a star running back that has the skillset of Peterson and Andrew Luck that experts say have very little to now flaws.
Trent Richardson in 2009 recorded 751 yards and 8 rushing touchdowns while splitting carries with 3 different running backs. In 2010 he recorded 700 yards and 6 touchdowns while catching for 4 and returning 1 kickoff return for a touchdown.
