Darren McFadden: 2011 Predictions and NFL MVP Campaign

Many around the NFL landscape call Darren McFadden's 2010 a breakout season. It was nice for Raider fans to see their 2008 first round pick finally shake off the injury bug and do something but I call it a break through.

This is a man with an unstoppable blend of talents that hasn't even scratched the surface of what he can truly do. I say that 2011 will be his real breakout season and a big case will be made for him to win NFL MVP.

He has size, speed, power, moves, hands and picks up the blitz well to protect the quarterback. In 2010, he wasn't just healthy but he was able to do more because offensive coordinator turned head coach Hue Jackson knew how to use him.

Jackson will know how to use his most prized weapon even better in 2011 but that's not all of it. McFadden will have an improved, power blocking offensive line to pave the way for him.

To add to that, I'm predicting that McFadden will play in all 16 games in 2011.
