If you are looking for an impact running back, you got it right here in the 6'2, 215lbs Darren McFadden. Darren is the definition of athleticism, with great size, speed, and quickness. McFadden is also known for his great hands, which will help him to receive some in the NFL. McFadden was noted in college for finding and following his blockers very well.
McFadden, a two time Heisman trophy runner up, played his collegiate football at the University of Arkansas. Some believe him to be the best ever to come out of Arkansas. At Arkansas Darren broke numerous records both within his school, but also the conference- SEC. In 38 total games at Arkansas Darren ran 758 times for over 4,500 total yards. That's an average of 5.85 yards per carry. McFadden also scored 41 touchdowns. Along with his running ability, he also showed a lot receiving, as he caught 46 passes for a total of 365 yards, and two touchdowns. He also returned kicks for the Razorbacks, 38 in his career for 926 total yards, and a touchdown.
Darren played his high school football at Pulaski Oak Grove High School in North Little Rock, Arkansas. During High School McFadden became the first player from the state of Arkansas to be named to the Parade All- American team. When his high school career came to an end McFadden combined for over 4,800 total yards on nearly 500 attempts. That totals to be a 9.8 yard per carry average. He also played baseball and ran track while in high school.
Scouts say McFadden's number one downfall is his blocking ability. With his running ability and shear athleticism, we think it will make up for his blocking ability. When you have a running back as good as McFadden, a lot of times you can ignore his blocking ability. This is what we foresee with McFadden.
