Peter King: The Bucs will Draft Adams or Peterson

Si.com's Peter King feels the Bucs would draft DE Gaines Adams from Clemson or RB Adrian Peterson from Oklahoma if they are unsuccessful in moving up for Calvin Johnson.

Why would the Bucs Draft Adrian Peterson?  I'm wondering the very same thing.  Cadillac Williams is still productive minus last seasons performance (due to no line help), Michael Pittman is under contract, AND . . . BJ Askew has said he would like to resume his Running Back role from his collegiate days at Michigan.  King's reasoning is that the Bucs would want a player that could immediately step in and produce.  I tend to believe that player is Amobi Okoye from Louisville.  His speed alone sets him apart from the pack, along with his age (19 years old).
