Chat with former Arkansas RB Darren McFadden

Auto Update: Off
Welcome to The Show! On Friday, NFL prospect and former Arkansas RB Darren McFadden will stop by to chat about the NFL draft and being the new cover athlete for EA Sports' NCAA Football 09.

McFadden will be one of four cover athletes for NCAA Football 09 as he will be on the front of the XBox360 version. The PS2, PS3 and PSP games will each feature a different athlete. NCAA Football 09, which will be released July 18, will unveil the all-new Break Away Animation Engine which allows gamers to break in and out of moves giving the user more direct control as well as instant influence and responsiveness on the field.

McFadden finished second in the Heisman voting the past two seasons, after rushing for more than 3,400 yards total. McFadden had his best season in 2007, his junior year, when he ran for 1,830 yards and 16 TDs, while averaging 5.3 yards per carry. He is considered by many as the top rated prospect in the 2008 draft.

According to McFadden's Scouts Inc.'s draft profile, McFadden "runs with good vision and great patience but explodes through the line of scrimmage once he finds the crease. Very few NFL runners possess his type of second-gear to bounce runs outside and to run away from defenders in the open field."

Send in your questions now, then join McFadden on Friday at 3:15 p.m. ET!
