Default Another Character Issue for McFadden

Two paternity suits for McFadden?
Darren McFadden may be the fastest man in the NFL combine, but he also may have done a little two much celebrating after being named a Heisman Trophy finalist two years in a row. The running back has a paternity suit on his hands already and told a team he has two more kids along the way with presumably two different women. Kids today are in such a rush. Donít players usually wait till they're pros for this kind of thing? (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

This is the original article: http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/sha...ne_report.html

Someone had told me a few weeks ago that there was more than just the bar incidents in Little Rock. Apparently there were rumors of this floating around but no one reported it directly until now. I guess we'll see what owner wants to help McFly pay for his legal fees.

He would be great backfield mate with Travis Henry. They could share paternity lawyers and DNA experts. Ladies - get your protection ready.

ATL needs help all over. Could be looking at Dorsey or Ellis. Jake Long really impressed me too.

There are so many 'unknowns' it seems this year from the top down. Who really has ANY idea whats going to happen in the 1st 3 picks alone!

The only thing I wonder about is that when you look at the top 10-12 players in this draft, there are so many that look so good, that it may drop him further than in other years. The deeper the class is perceived to be by NFL GM's, the further he might drop.

I think this draft is pretty solid on Defensive talent for the top of the draft . The thing McFadden has going for him is that there really doesn't seem to be that much elite Offensive players for the top. You have Jake Long and then it jumps to Clady, Williams, etc. but Jake's the only sure fire lock. No TE's, WR's really that look like they'll be at the top. And that leaves the 3 RB's in McFadden, Mendenhall, and Stewart.

Default Re: Another Character Issue for McFadden

You're leaving out Matt Ryan, but yes, the D is much deeper than the offense in the very top of this draft. Still, if you're looking at Chris Long, Sedrick Ellis, Glenn Dorsey, Vernon Gholston on top of the offensive players you mentioned, it may not take much to talk yourself out of McFadden.

Also, while they may be in the minority, it wouldn't surprise me if there were a few teams that moved Mendenhall and/or Stewart ahead of McFadden based on this.
