Vikings Playmakers Have Speed To Burn
[size=11pt]Playmakers Have Speed To Burn[/size]
Practice was over, but Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin wanted to get in some extra conditioning, so they ran sprints back and forth across the field in the Vikings indoor facility.
This wasn't a race, and they weren't going full speed, but one couldn't help but wonder what would happen if those two did line up to see who is faster.
Peterson pretended to be a reporter during training camp and playfully posed that question to Harvin during a mass interview. Others have asked the same thing. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, for one, gives the nod to Harvin, the rookie wide receiver from Florida

Re: Vikings Playmakers Have Speed To Burn
I wouldn't be surprised if Percy Harvin beats Adrian Peterson for the first 20 yards. Percy has incredible quick steps, I can't think of anyone in the NFL right now that has faster steps than Percy. Percy Harvin is also much lighter than Adrian.
However... Adrian has the whole package, plus I believe his game speed is even faster than his time in the 40-yard dash.
I think it will be a close race in the 40-yard dash, but Percy will most likely come out on top.
