I can understand comparing him to an awesome athlete like PP. I especially understand the comparisons based on his background with the Petersons. What I can;t agree with is claiming that he is anything like a PP clone. I just see PP as a totally unique specimen. Maybe the two will be twins after a few years but I just do not see RR in the same mold at this time. I see him closer to the next Mo with a little more aggression.
For instance, Mo wasn't really a good punt returner at that level while PP was a horse at punts and KOs. PP was more of a solidly built safety prospect who's speed and change of direction allowed him to cover lights out. He also was the best receiver on the field IMO but his ability to shut down anyone in the passing game was too important on the defensive side.
Maybe I will be proven wrong? Lord knows it won't be the first time. To say that anyone is at the same level as PP7 is saying that that player could end up playing anywhere in the secondary or at the WR or slot receiver positions in the NFL AND make it to at least a few pro bowls in his career at those positions.
