*Rank amongst 30 cornerbacks at combine
In last week’s preview, I said that if McFadden can beat the average 40-yard dash time of cornerbacks in the combine over the last five years, he will put himself in position to be drafted in the third or fourth round.
McFadden did just that on Tuesday, although he was a bit closer than he would have liked. McFadden recorded a time of 4.54, just one-hundredth of a second below the 5-year average of 4.55.
McFadden’s 40-time, along with an impressive performance in the defensive back drills, gave scouts closure on his skill-set. They know he can play – countless amounts of game film and a strong week of practice at the Senior Bowl supports that, they just wanted to make sure he would run an above-average time at the combine.
With his performance at the combine, McFadden has likely maintained his mid-round projection. If he can run a sub-4.5 40-yard dash at his pro day on March 19, however, don’t be surprised if some teams consider taking him earlier.
