Baldinger trashes McFadden

Arkansas running Darren McFadden won the Doak Walker Award (nation's top running back) the last two college football seasons. He is the all-time leading rusher in Razorback history. He is the second leading rusher in SEC history behind Herschel Walker . . .

He tied an SEC record by rushing for 325 yards in a game this year (against South Carolina). He is 6-1, 211 pounds and runs the 40 in 4.36. He is an excellent receiver and is very good on halfback options. But he doesn't impress Fox NFL analyst Brian Baldinger.

"I think he's the colossal bust in this draft," said Baldinger. "He doesn't run with patience. He's a very incomplete back who tries to run you over. If he gets a crease, he can take it to the house. But he doesn't break tackles and he fumbles. I'm not impressed."

It obviously takes a lot to impress Baldinger.
