Who Should Take Darren McFadden?

Darren McFadden is the best running back in this years draft, but where will he fall?

The Miami Dolphins have huge problems just about everywhere on their team except for the running back position. Ronnie Brown has durability issues but has had a nice career so far and was 4th in the league in rushing before an injury ended his 2020 campaign. The Dolphins would like to have McFadden here but have much more glaring issues to deal with.

The St. Louis Rams already have a solid running back in Steven Jackson. Their defense is very weak and McFadden would not be the right fit at number two either.

Atlanta is the first place where Fayetteville stand-out may work. Warrick Dunn's legs have some miles on them and Jerious Norwood has not proven that he can be an every down back. If Matt Ryan is off the board by number three, I think Atlanta should scoop up McFadden here.

However, If Ryan is off the board, than Oakland may still have a chance at the former Arkansas star. Many people feel the Raiders have a weak running game, but they were actually 4th in the league in rushing as a team. The combination of Justin Fargas and Lamont Jordan was solid and the offensive line and defensive line are bigger concerns right now for Oakland. AFC west rival Kansas City also has no need for McFadden because of Larry Johnson's presence in the backfield.

Could he fall all the way to number six? I doubt he will fall past that. The New York Jets offense has no big playmakers and a few mediocre running backs in Thomas Jones and Leon Washington. As much as I love Vernon Gholston, the defensive end out of Ohio State, McFadden is just too good a player to pass up here. Also, the Jets may get scared that if they do not select him then the Patriots will take him at number seven and torch Gang Green twice a year in their divisional match-ups.

McFadden brings many unique qualities to the NFL. He put up great numbers in the tough SEC and survived the year physically. Although he cannot run over defenders like Adrian Peterson, the best running back in the draft can run right around them. He dominated college football two years in a row and ran a ridiculous 40 time to solidify his top ten status.
