Raiders | Darren McFadden looking forward to new scheme
Sun, 07 Apr 2013 11:00:35 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden said he is looking forward to the team's switch to a power blocking scheme in their running game. "This is very exciting for me," McFadden said. "I am the type of guy who likes to go downhill, make a cut and go; that's my thing. We'll mix it up like we used to, and get some zones in there, but for the most part, I will be keeping my shoulders toward the line of scrimmage." McFadden averaged 4.5 yards per carry his first four years when the team used a power blocking scheme.

McFadden struggled in the zone-blocking scheme in 2012 and only produced 707 rushing yards, so the blocking scheme change could help him in 2013. However, McFadden's biggest problem has been with injuries. He has missed 23 games over the past five seasons because of various injuries. He could be a very risky every-week starter next season because of the blocking change and his injury history.
