Conference: Western Athletic
40 Time: 5.25
Biography: Two-year starter at both guard and center. All-Conference selection after his junior campaign.
Positives: Quick, undersized lineman who gets the most from his ability. Bends his knees, keeps his feet moving and anchors in pass protection. Quick out to the second level, adjusts to opponents, and gets chips on linebackers, removing them from the action. Can hit a moving target and effective in motion. Keeps his head on a swivel and displays a good feel the game.
Negatives: Must be more consistent with the shotgun snaps. Lacks the dominant base and marginally effective as a run blocker.
Analysis: McFadden is a solid football player with limited physical tools. The ability to handle several positions on the offensive line and his skills blocking in motion could make him an inexpensive backup for a zone-blocking system.
