  The 6-foot-2, 235-pound McFadden is on the verge of leading IU in tackles for the second straight year, with 52 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, five sacks and two interceptions. "His instincts and skill set have always been impressive," IU defensive coordinator Kane Wommack said. "But as he knows more and more about what's going on within our defense and then anticipating what the offense does, he's creating more and more plays, and his ability to play coverage and fit the run and his pressure ability and rush ability has really been phenomenal this season." McFadden said that has come through film study, as he's often in the film room with fellow linebackers James Miller and Cam Jones, learning opposing defensive tendencies. "Film preparation is a huge piece of our game and mine particularly," McFadden said. "We jump into the film throughout the entire week."

Another aspect that has helped McFadden's game is speed training, which was conducted by former IU assistant strength coach Dr. Matt Rhea, who is now at Alabama. It's allowed McFadden to cover the entire field in run defense. McFadden has posted nine or more tackles in four of seven games this season, including 11 tackles in IU's season-opening win against Penn State. "For me getting to the next level, coming into college I think my speed was a huge factor I needed to improve on," McFadden said. "I think I did a little bit. That's definitely helped me make plays on the field." - Herald Bulletin
