    Who Goes First, Darren McFadden or Brady Quinn?

    [size=13pt]Can McFadden's talent outweigh character issues? [/size]

    Before the NFL scouting combine this past February, most conversations about potential top picks in the April 26-27 draft included Darren McFadden, the dynamic running back from Arkansas......

    It will be a good story if he succeeds but I just see "Bust" written all over this guy.

    Fact of the matter, IMHO, he is only gonna go in the top 10 because some team will take him hoping for a AD type of guy and this kid isn't a AD kindof guy.

    Doesn't run with power.
    Small lower body.

    He is a big play guy though if the team that gets him has a good OL that can give him the holes.

    Thanks for the read my friend.....

    Boy, did I feel like an official from the 2003 Minnesota Vikings.
    That had me rolling.
    ;D

    Mr. McFadden has already proven himself to have the potential to go to jail and he may have more kids calling him daddy, than he knows about.
    I still say he has bust all over him and am really having a hard time putting him in my mock.
    If it wasn't for what AD did last year this kid wouldn't be in the top 15 let alone the top 5.

    This year has got to be one of the hardest to guess were these guys are gonna go just becaue of yutz's like him.
    ;D

    Very true.
    He's fast, but doesn't have the base of AD.
    He is a playmaker and people are concerned over letting another AD pass by them.
    But I agree that he is not a top 10 guy and should slip to mid/late first round.
    Thats based on talent, his other issues just make it that much harder to pick him early.
