ESPN's Ben Goessling believes Adrian Peterson could be used in more passing situations this season.
The Vikings don't have a third-down back after losing Toby Gerhart, so Peterson is a candidate to take on a bigger workload in the receiving game. Peterson has just 69 catches and 388 yards combined the last two seasons and is rarely used in pass protection, so it's not an ideal role. Minnesota is expected to target a running back in the middle rounds of the draft to replace Gerhart. One of Matt Asiata, Zach Line, and Bradley Randle will likely end up as the No. 3 back.
