Good-hands club

Adrian Peterson had just 24 receptions in three seasons at Oklahoma, but the Vikings' No. 1 draft choice apparently caught the ball well during the team's three-day rookie minicamp.

Coach Brad Childress, as part of Monday's chalk-talk session with the media, showed tape of several Peterson receptions, including some on which he had to reach out for the ball and catch it away from his body.

The Vikings didn't draft Peterson for his receiving ability, but to this point, they seem satisfied that his hands won't be an issue.

Speaking of receptions. What are the chances a wide receiver leads the team in catches next year? If I were a betting man (and I am) I would wager that running backs as a group catch a lot more passes that the wide receivers as a group.
