I think we should trade down and get Adibi and Hall, from VT. I have watched them for quite awhile and if we could get both of them it will be really good for us.

And he can't pass cover worth crap. Maybe against the cream puffs OSU plays year in and year out he looked great, but against LSU, he looked lost in pass coverage, average at best in run support, and with no sideline to sideline range. Maybe is because LSU has speed, but if he can't handle that speed in college, how can you expect him to handle speed in the NFL?
Agreed T-R. The guy is a solid player, but I was actually watching him every chance I could, and he didn't make any big plays. He made a lot of tackles, but a lot of them were downfield. Not saying he's not good, but I'd rather see us go after a guy with more athleticism.

Watch, this is what's going to happen: McFadden will have a poor showing at the combine and will somehow fall all the way to the 10th spot in the draft. At which point, the Saint's will draft him as the best player available, rather than going after a CB or a LB that we need.
