Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named Second Team All-ACC and posted 30 tackles and 10 pass breakups in 2017. Tied for first in the nation with eight interceptions and earned First Team All-ACC honors as a sophomore, adding 20 tackles and six pass breakups.
Pos: 
Physical cornerback with solid ball skills but questionable long speed. Strong, mixes it up with opponents and nicely tracks the pass in the air. Physically beats down receivers to defend the throw. Reads the opponent’s eyes, gets his head back around and finds the ball in the air. Plays with awareness and displays focus and concentration. Possesses a closing burst to the play and good hands for the interception. Forcefully moves up the field to defend the run. Opportunistic.
Neg: 
Cannot plant and explode to the ball. Quick out of his backpedal. Constantly trails receivers downfield.
Analysis: 
McFadden possesses the size and ball skills to play at the next level, but playing speed is a concern. He offers possibilities in bump-and-run and potentially zone coverage but must be protected due to his lack of speed.
