McFadden will be a top pick, while Lee might not get picked

Some underclassmen, like Darren McFadden, made the right choice to turn pro. One junior who should be returning to school but isn't is Florida State's Xavier Lee.

Question: Who are the top five underclassmen who have declared for the draft?

Kiper: 1. Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas: He's not the violent runner that Adrian Peterson is, but he has a ton of skill. He needs to take better care of the ball, but he should be one of the first two picks in the draft.
