As expected, Tarvarus McFadden will forego his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.

A former five-star recruit, McFadden is widely considered to be among the top cornerback prospects in the draft. At 6-2, 200-pounds, McFadden fits the mold of the prototypical taller cornerback that NFL teams are looking for.

Despite playing sparingly as a true freshman, McFadden broke into the lineup as a sophomore and won the job at the boundary cornerback position. He grabbed eight interceptions in 2016, which led the country. McFadden was one of the finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Award and won the Jack Tatum Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back.

As a junior, McFadden saw a dip in production and failed to record an interception.

McFadden is currently being projected as a early draft pick, anywhere between the first and second round on mock drafts.
