Mayock ranks Mendenhall over McFadden

Mayock on Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall vs. Arkansas' Darren McFadden:

"Mendenhall translates better to the NFL game. He's 225 pounds and has great feet and tremendous burst and acceleration for a player of his size. My biggest concern with McFadden is that although he also has great burst and acceleration, I don't think he has the lower body strength that you're looking for in a first-round NFL back."

Mayock on USC's Sedrick Ellis vs. LSU's Glenn Dorsey:

"They are both great football players and it's a very difficult evaluation between the two as to who is better because they are both top-10 picks. What I like about Ellis is that he played nose tackle in a 3-4 defense at USC and that will appeal to 3-4 NFL teams. In addition, he will also appeal to the 4-3 teams because he has the quickness to play the "three technique." Dorsey is a great football player and I give him credit for playing through injuries the past few years. However his durability is a concern."
