Here is how Peterson reacted to questions from the media at the post-draft minicamp:
On if a lot of information is being thrown at him:
"A lot of things we ran at Ohio State (but) the terminology is a little different. I adjusted pretty well, and a lot of older guys helped me to adjust and fine-tune some things."
On making the transition from college to the pros:
"I would like to think I will make the transition pretty well and pretty quick with the help of the coach and the older guys. I'm a small fish in a big pond. They've got to help me grow."
On what he learned in his first practice:
"Use my hands and don't expose my chest because those offensive lineman have a hellified punch."
On if he is familiar with brats and beer:
"I'm 24 years old and never drank (alcohol) before. I don't even know what beer tastes like. Never smoked nothing in my life. As far as brats, I'm more of a hamburger type of guy."
On the speed of the game:
"The tempo is a lot faster. You've got to learn and processing is a lot faster. For the most part, you just pay attention and take notes. It's kind of like school."
On positions he is playing in camp:
"Just playing tackle."
On sliding to the third round:
"Of course you always want to go high. Unfortunately things happen for a reason. It's all in God's plan. I'm just doing what I'm doing."
