McFadden looks like a beast. Can catch, throw and run. Thing that scares me is he's 6'2, runs up right, and has had some past injuries, but played through a lot of them.

Steve Slaton looks more like the prototypical NFL RB. Small, compact, low center of gravity and is very very quick. Thing that scares me with him is his fumbling problem. If Pat White wasnt there his stats probably would be off the chart.

I think McFadden is easily the better prospect.

McFadden. Slaton is a 10-15 pick and perfect for a zone blocking scheme if you ask me.

2 days after the draft and I'm already sick of this topic.

I've barely had enough time to digest our 2007 picks. Let alone consider who were going to select next year.

I'm not buying Slaton as a first round guy yet...so this is an easy pick for me.

Slaton is another Ted Ginn, just a RB. He is nothing. He won't do much in the NFL IMO. McFadden in a landslide.

Why would you think this, huh? Just pulling more crap out of your ass.

2005 - 1,128yds, 5.5avg, 17td's
2006 - 1,744yds, 7.0avg, 16td's

40 Time: 4.42 40 Low: 4.35 40 High: 4.48

Yeah that just screams terrible :rolleyes:.

Is D-Mac more versital and dynamic then Slaton, yes I would say so. But to make such a bold statement about Slaton, that you can't back up in any manner is ridiculous.

I understand that this is a draft website and all, and that we will speculate about and pick over these prospects for the next year which is fine, but to say a guy is nothing and won't do much in the NFL before he even plays a single down of his Junior season is ludicrous at best. I'm pretty sure you could have found plenty of people a year ago who would have said Jamarcus Russell is "nothing" too.

Slaton is a system RB as well. Listen to D-Unit. D-Mac takes a dump on slaton, easily.

Stop trying to hide behind D-Unit, he's not going to save you when you come out and make crazy comments. And what is your fascination with people taking dumps on each other? You have a poop fetish or something?

No, it was just a joke. You guys can have your opinion, I can have mine. McFadden owns Slaton, and about 95% of the people think so as well.

He is not terribly bright and may be a caffeine addict. I would just let them sooly-ol comments ride with funny one-liners.

You haven't read anything of what we have written have you? Nobody said Slaton was better then D-Mac or anthing. We were calling you out on claiming Slaton will fail. When you have done nothing to prove that is so. So maybe when you start talking about facts, rather then talking out of your ass, people will listen.

I don't think he even needs facts, he just needs to support his opinion, saying Slaton will fail because he's a system running back in an offense with another exellent running weapon in the backfield is a decent counter to the stats. Saying he sucks...because he just does and other people crap on his chest lends him zero credibility

I have my opinions. Slaton is small, and in a system where he can't fail. Not to mention a QB that takes a lot of attention off of him, and McFadden has no QB. McFadden also plays A LOT BETTER defenses in the SEC. McFadden also has better physical tools.

A little analytical rigor behind those go a long way. But hey man it is a message board!

You honestly think Slaton is better than McFadden?

Please show me where someone said Slaton was better then McFadden.

No one, but robert in big d is hammering me for saying slaton will be nothing. I have the righ tto my opinion. He is slow, has a great o-line, and doesn't play even close to the competition McFadden does on a weekly basis. Slaton may not be a bust, but I don't think he should even be mentioned with McFadden. WV's opponents had to focus on Pat white just as much, if not more than slaton, while McFadden had no consistant QB, and played way better competition, they knew what was coming, and he still owned.
