NFL: Adrian Peterson, Philip Rivers and other NFL Look-a-Likes

0 of 40

    Just because all of us NFL fans are depressed about the lockout, doesn't mean we can't have some fun a week and a half before the NFL's 76th annual NFL Player Selection Meeting! 

    I've tried to think back and recall all of the times I've said to myself, "You know who that looks like..."  To give myself some leeway, I'm going to include former and current players, as well as members from this year's soon-to-be draft class.

    I hope we can have some fun with this. Please post up, and comment if you can think of some!

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson And...

    Rivers has become one of the league's elite signal callers and challenged for the MVP award early in the season

Dolphins QB Dan Marino And...

9 of 40

    The 'Fins steal at the bottom of the famed '83 draft class' 1st round, Marino shattered just about every significant passing record before Brett Favre continued playing...and continued playing.  Being a Bills fan, I'm more than fine with that, though
