Cam or phe Posted February 27, 2008 Share Posted February 27, 2008 PICK #3 The Falcons Pick:Darren McFadden (HB, Arkansas) There are rumblings that the Falcons covet QB Matt Ryan of Boston College. Even if that s true, I have hard time believing that with all this time for Darren McFadden to inevitably rise back up the boards, (how he s dropped is beyond me) McFadden won t ultimately become the Falcons pick. HB isn t as great a need as QB, but with Warrick Dunn aging and Jerious Norwood failing to get a firm hold on the starting job, adding a premier game breaker like McFadden might be a good idea for a franchise searching for some relief after a forgettable season, Bobby Petrino, and of course Michael Vick. As a prospect, McFadden has excellent size, top-flight breakaway speed, a lethal stiff arm, and all the trick play capability in the world with his throwing ability. Not the most physical player, McFadden could also work on his receiving skills and inside running, but make no mistake- this is not your average HB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
