Bryant McFadden CB Florida St. 6’ 193
By: Robert Davis

Bryant McFadden has been an important part of the Seminole secondary since his redshirt freshman season. He was a key reserve as a freshman, and finished the year with 22 tackles from his corner spot. As a sophomore, he had 21 tackles and three interceptions on the season. His junior year he moved into the starting lineup and finished the year with 28 tackles with nine passes broken up and three forced fumbles. He was even more active as a senior, finishing with 36 tackles, 11 pass breakups and one interception.

McFadden looks like a player that will be a better pro than a college player. He has very good size, is tough, and can bring down the ball carrier in the open field. He is a very good athlete with the ability to turn and run with receivers. He is dependable, and has been in the rotation all four years at Florida St. He has displayed good ball skills during his past two seasons, breaking up 20 passes during that time.

For all his physical ability, McFadden has not been the biggest playmaker in college. His career high in interceptions is just three. He doesn’t always play at the level his ability dictates he should. He has had some injury issues that may be of concern, as he’s missed time because of injuries to various parts of his body, including his foot, groin, and back.

McFadden is one of the best all around corners in the draft. With players like Corey Webster and Brandon Browner have a lot of questions, McFadden may be able to take advantage with a good showing at Florida St.’s pro day and jump ahead of both players in the draft. He looks like a borderline first round talent, but he should be off the board by the middle of the second round.
