BIO: Second-team All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 36/1/9. Moved into the starting lineup as a junior and totaled 28/0/9.
POSITIVES: Explosive cornerback who displays the ability to shut down opponents. Fluid transitioning with wideouts off the line, gets vertical, adjusting in midair to defend the throw, and possesses good hands for the pick. Displays a good move on the pass and quick break on the throw. Physical, mixes it up and wraps up tackling. Effective facing the quarterback when he can immediately see the ball and position himself to break up the throw.
NEGATIVES: Inconsistent and marginally productive. Lacks instincts, gets turned and slow finding the ball in man coverage. Work ethic has been questioned by scouts.
ANALYSIS: A physical cover corner with solid size/speed numbers and an upside for the next level, McFadden possesses the tools to develop into a starter at the next level. Must become more consistent and dedicate himself to the details of his position to ever reach the expectations placed upon him.
