    Well he will not go first, Miami does not need a running back, the only thing they have on the team is a linebacker, 1 DE, and a running back. They need every other position. Man I wish there was a Peyton Manning type QB this year.

    Would not be surprised if that pick is traded. They need an awful lot, and Bill Parcells likes to trade down.

    Re: McFadden forgoes senior year

    I wouldn't draft him. He reminds me too much of a Reggie Bush or Kijana Carter. Hes a great athlete, but I just dont't see a position for him in the NFL,at least as a feature back.Maybe returning kicks. If he was still around in the 2nd round, I'd take a flier on him, but he's going to want top 5 money, and I don't think he's a top 5 player in the NFL draft.

    Agreed. Besides the Vikings, I'm a huge 'Phins fan and want them to get a stud.

    Re: McFadden forgoes senior year

    I would say he has a good shot a going in the 2-7 range to either Atl, Oakland, NYJ, and lets hope he does not slip to 7 then the Pats will take him for sure.

    Re: McFadden forgoes senior year

    Barring any trades, I don't think the Dolphins or Rams will take him at 1 or 2. I bet someone in the group of 3-6 will take him.

    Re: McFadden forgoes senior year

    Don't be suprised if the Cowboys trade both of their first round picks and possibly more for the #1 pick. Jerry Jones has serious man-love for McFadden and is an Arkansas alum. That and for some reason he has not been a big fan of Julious Jones and refused to give the job to Barber even though the guy is a beast at RB.

    His nickname is very fitting: Marion the Barbarian.

    Jerry Jones doesn't set the depth chart. Dallas is simply doing what has worked for them the last two years. You know who they covet more because Barber always finishes the game.

    This will be Julius Jones last year in Dallas, almost for sure. As a Cowboys fan, I would love to get McFadden, but not at a huge price. Jerry Jones should know how much it can hurt your team when you give up multiple draft picks in order to get a player, which he was the beneficiary when they traded Herschel Walker.

    Re: McFadden forgoes senior year

    McFadden is a stud, and this is one of the deepest Running Back draft classes in years. The top 10 running backs all have the skills to be feature backs.
