Will be intersting to see him in the NFL, hope he gets to run behind a good OL otherwise whatever speed he has won't help him.

McFadden's official time was 4.33. Yes... he's Peterson with "blazing" speed. He beat Peterson by .04. BLAZING!!!

I guess out of all these months you finally got something right missile... BLAZING!

Looks like he is going to make some team very happy. The Falcons can have him if they want, I would sure hate seeing this dude burn up the Saints defense a couple of times per year. Maybe the Saints will get lucky and McFadden will wind up in the AFC. Then we would only have to worry about him once every 4 years or in the Super Bowl... LOL

Put the crystal ball back in your pocket. Let's see what this kid does on the field before you go rubbing anyone's face in anything...

We've got a kid just like this on our team already. Where has speed gotten him?

Re: McFadden just ran a 4.27 :)

Peterson ran 4.37 his first attempt and 4.42 his second attempt.

McFadden ran a 4.33... not a 4.27.

So McFadden is faster than Peterson... but not by much.

I was really impressed with Stewart, Mendenhall, and Forte's time considering their size. Whoever lands these guys will be getting very good backs... power and speed combos. Deep deep class of running backs. I think 4 backs will go in the first round.

McFadden NCAA career: 23 fumbles (loosing 9) His size/durability could be an issue at the next level.

He averaged almost 6 ypc as the primary mail carrier on an SEC team. He missed two games in his career. He had 40 rushing TDs in 37 games, and he caught for 2, passed for a few and returned kicks.

I hope the fumbles and off-field stuff have him sliding to 10.
