Darren McFadden can fly!
He's actually one of the Raider's relay sprinters from the back field position. However, his problems are injuries, breaking tackles, and making guys miss.
Tom Cable has time and again told reporters that McFadden has worked hard on such things. 2010 training camp reveals that he definitely has.
He has been running inside a lot in camp and has shown the one adjustment he needed to make so far. All he needed to do is run lower to get better results.
When you run lower, you can change directions much faster. You can keep your legs from being hit and keep your legs driving. That very thing also keeps you off of all of the injured list.
There are two reasons he hadn't made such an adjustment before. One, he is a track man and running at top speed requires you to run up tall. That is a habit that he never broke between track season and football season.
Two, McFadden came out early and many of those players come out with fundamental flaws. He was doing his thing in college so he was probably never told about his flaw before entering the NFL.
I really hope that the 2008 first round pick gets it now. If he does, he will give himself a chance to do what first round picks do.
