The former Auburn cornerback was drafted Saturday by the Oakland Raiders with the seventh pick of the fifth round (138th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft.
“It’s a dream come true,” McFadden said. “The Raiders kept calling me and letting me know they were very interested but I really thought I was going to end up in Jacksonville or Houston just by the phone calls I was getting. I’m happy to be with the Raiders. G_d put me there because he probably thought it was a better situation for me.”
