    PLAYERS, COACHES AND ISSUES TO WATCH AS NFL CAMPS NEAR

    The shoulder pads and helmets are about to be unpacked and NFL training camps will begin opening next week. As the dog days of summer drag on, The Post gives you the Top 10 NFL questions as players report to camp....

    ...2. Which rookie will have the biggest impact?

    The Vikings took Moss in 1998 with the 21st pick and landed the Rookie of the Year. They may have done it again this year, grabbing Adrian Peterson with the seventh pick. The running back had injury issues at Oklahoma, but when he’s healthy he’s nearly unstoppable. Teamed with Chester Taylor, Peterson should have a monster year for Minnesota.

    “I call him ‘the cashier,’ ” Hoge said. “He’s going to make every team pay that passed on him. He runs like Walter Payton. I think he’s as unique and special a runner as we have seen.” ....

    More Adrian hype...I sure hope he lives up to all of this.
    Expectations are so high now, if he doesn't rush for over 1000 yards and 10 TDs he is going to be a disappointment.
