"As I reported earlier, the Raiders have a heavy interest in Arkansas RB Darren McFadden but they may never get the chance to turn in that card. Rams sources close to the team say McFadden is the top rated player on their board and the team that already has Steven Jackson in the backfield is not concerned with adding another stud Horse to the stable.
It could be a way of driving up the price for the 2nd overall pick or could be insurance against losing Jackson who is set to become a FA after the season and has struggled with injuries since joining the league."
This is from someone who works around the league at another forum (He has been very reliable). Hopefully it's just a smokescreen. I can't see McFadden being a better pro than Jackson.
