Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State

San Diego State University cornerback Leon McFadden is in possession of great natural instincts and can recognize routes before they happen. Although he is a bit undersized, he has a long frame and could push for consideration on Day 2.

McFadden is at his best when he can read the quarterback's eyes in off-man coverage. Quick, choppy feet and a noticeable short-area burst to close the distance. Solid zone coverage ability. Maintains active feet to get into position in zone. Doesn't have great straight line speed and lacks a legit second gear to recover from his misreads.

Below-average height and average leaping ability will create issues in going up for 50/50 balls. Takes good pursuit angles downfield. Above-average hands. Still developing in run support. Long arms help him take-on blockers well. Shows lack of strength as a tackler. Needs to learn how to disengage more quickly, keep his arm and shoulder open for contact. Fundamentals when breaking down in open space for tackles also needs work.

McFadden projects as a third to fourth round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
