This can't be the same guy who was at West Virginia, I don't know if I've ever seen him run as hard in college as he has lately...I thought he would be a decent RB, but nowhere near as strong and explosive ...I know he's in a great fit for him in a ZBS but I've been shocked to say the least at his play.

This year shows yet again why teams with top 10 picks should rarely take a RB. The one RB that did go top 10 has had health issues and hasn't lived up to the hype even when on the field. Teams that took RB's outside the top 10 are getting good production from them. It's too easy to find good RB's and too hard to find good players at positions like QB, OT, DE, DT, CB to waste that high a pick on a back.

I actually didn't really have an opinion on the guy. I didn't follow him all that much in college, and stayed away from commenting on him.

I probably would be against him though, just knowing my preferences.

I dunno he was really quick with great short area agility and he made some sick cuts. there was a lot to like about the kid as long as you kept in mind that he's a little guy and doesn't have 4.3 speed.

wow few of you calling mcfadden a bust already wow!.... after one season him lingering with turf toe and being the second rb behind fargas. You give him snaps he does well week 2 with pretty much one half of play he runs for 160+ yards and a td so he has the talent, being with the raiders doesnt help either. I think youll see him breaking out next year for sure when he will be the number one rb.

I had him going to Green Bay in the 3rd because I thought he would be amazing in that scheme and splitting carries with Ryan Grant and I got destroyed for it

yeah i couldn't really comment bc i never saw him play. im sure though, if i were to rewind the clock, his size would turn me off. i generally favor the power philosophy, so smaller guys would turn me off.

especially with running backs.
