    Jets meet with McFadden

    [url]http://www.nj.com/jets/ledger/index.ssf?/base/sports-1/1205904936248810.xml&coll=1[/url]

    The Jets, who have the sixth pick overall in next month's NFL draft, flew a contingent of team representatives to Fayetteville, Ark., yesterday to meet with former Razorbacks running back Darren McFadden, according to someone with knowledge of the visit.

    That person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to speak for the club.

    McFadden, who rushed for 1,830 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, is considered the top player in the draft by many draft experts and there's a chance he won't be there when the Jets pick. He was clocked at a blazing 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine last month.

    Nonetheless, the Jets are doing their homework just in case. McFadden has been dogged by questions about his character and the Jets put a premium on character. He has been involved in two nightclub incidents and has two children on the way by two different women.

    In three seasons at Arkansas, the 6-2, 210-pound McFadden amassed 4,590 yards rushing and 41 touchdowns on 785 carries.

    He better be more Adrian Peterson than Leon Washington.

    Reggie Bush was "the player" to draft at RB and he's been a mediocre runner. Defenses are fast enough to get to the hole and close it.

    Run DMC is a bit risky.
    I'd be way more happy if Chris Long or Vernon Gholston werre there.

    I agree, I think our running game will be much better and McFadden is a luxury where as we could use a play maker at other positions (ie. receiver). I personally would go for Gholston and build a dominant defense. I do not like take a running back so early.

    As much as I'd like to build a dominant defense by adding a stud in round 1, McFadden is a 'game changer' (he will put points on the board). Unless there is a defensive game changer there for us at 6 I have no problem going the McFadden route.
