Name: Walter McFadden
School: Pompano Beach Ely
STRENGTHS: Walter McFadden's strengths revolve around his combination of length and speed that he brings to the CB position. 6-0 tall corners with 4.35 speed don't just fall out of trees. Walter possesses something you just can't teach to a football player, and that is speed to make-up for whatever mistakes he makes. Walter is also a dynamite kickoff returner, taking two back for TD's in his career.
NEEDS TO WORK ON: Walter is very skinny and it will become a necessity that he adds weight in college or else he will be a major liability against the run. That added weight will also make Walter better in coverage as it will allow him to jam WR's at the line of scrimmage better. For as fast and athletic as Walter is, he also struggles somewhat in 1-on-1 coverage because his technique can use some work.
OVERALL: Walter McFadden is a player whose upside is as high as any CB in the state this year. However, he is going to make whoever his college coaches are, earn their paycheck. However, as is the case with many high risk prospects, the potential for the rewards at the end far outweigh the risks. That alone will land Walter some major D-1 offers
