Leon McFadden–San Diego St.(5’10, 190 pounds)

McFadden may not jump out as a familiar name but that could change come draft time.  He is fluid with his hips and is not shy about going up against any receiver.

The only thing that might concern some teams is his height at under 6 ft.  But like with Robert Alford of S.L.U., McFadden makes up for that in being able to close in on receivers even with having 4.50 speed.

McFadden finished his college career with a whopping 188 tackles, 37 passes broken up and 8 interceptions.  Most analysts have him as a fourth round pick and could prove to be a nice one if still there for the Black and Gold.
