Adrian Peterson to ATL?

I thought this was an interesting Falcons article at squibkick:

“There have even been suggestions that Petrino likes Adrian Peterson in the draft, because Warrick Dunn has been around for 10 years and Jerious Norwood is not his kind of back.”

The Falcons have so many needs that I am not really sure where they should turn, but with 8 picks in the Top 150, I would just assume they stand pat and go for immediate help. Trading up could land the birds Calvin Johnson or maybe Peterson, but if there is not a decent o-line to provide Vick some protection (to throw to Johnson) or to open holes (for Peterson) moving up would not make a lot of sense.
