Re: Steelers go CB in round 2
McFadden, 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, was the eighth cornerback selected in the second round and the 13th overall.
The Dallas Morning News rated him as the seventh-best cornerback available, and Darren Perry said the Steelers thought highly enough of him that he warranted "first-round consideration.
"He's a guy that plays a tough, physical game," Perry said. "He's the type of corner that we look for in the type of system that we play. He's going to cover, he's going to tackle and he plays with good technique. He's a sound football player."
