If OT Jake Long didn’t impress you yesterday, maybe RB Darren McFadden will. McFadden just ran a 4.27 40-yard dash. Right now that is his unofficial time, but it looks like McFadden didn’t hurt himself by running at the combine. Matter of fact, he might have made himself the top pick with someone looking to trade up to get him. (somewhere Jerry Jones is drooling)
McFadden was also rumored to have a slight leg injury and many people wondered why he was running. Today he showed he is a competitor, just like Adrian Peterson did last year at the combine. There is no way he slips like Purple Jesus did last year. The only way would be if his off-the-field problems scare teams away, but I think a 4.2 40 will make all of those people forget about those problems.
