The Miami Dolphins will make the first choice of the 2008 NFL Draft on April 26-27. If they don’t pick running back Darren McFadden (aka “D-Mac”) from Arkansas, they should fire their whole executive staff. At least pick him, and trade him if necessary. In my opinion, he’s the most talented athlete in the 2008 class.
Darren McFadden ran a reported 4.27 on his 40 Yard Dash NFL football combine.
Here’s the video on YouTube, though it only shows a head on view and not a side view, which is my preference.
Here’s a clip from ESPN on YouTube from a game between Arkansas vs South Carolina in 2007. It shows a McFadden 80 Yard TD and you can see for yourself how fluid he is, both acceleration and top end speed. I wonder how fast D-Mac can run a 60 or 100 meters?
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.
