Coming out of the draft, the power of Trent Richardson was, and still is, often compared to that of Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson.
Peterson seemed to fit the bill in comparison. He was a high first-round draft pick in a passing league, and was wildly successful.
Success for running backs can come quick – in fact, it must. This is a position that only gets older, and the stunning performance in the video below – Peterson breaking the NFL’s all-time single game rushing record – occurred in just Peterson’s eighth pro game.
It’s hard to watch this (and it’s every single Peterson carry en route to the record) and not get excited, or at least hopeful, as Browns fans just might have a YouTube god on their hands too.
