Mayock said that Mendenhall and McFadden would both be better than Jonathan Stewart...Since then I have questioned him.
Horrid horrid lies.
He was always insisting Stew was the best back in the draft and had him at the top of his draft board throughout the drafting period. The only knock, according to Mayock, was that he was injured.
Many struggled to believe him that McFadden was not the best back, yet he always pointed out that Stewart finished his runs, whereas McFaden invariably went down on first contact.
Mendenhall he was unsure of because he only had one good year.
Not sure if you are getting Mayock confused with someone else, but he routinely stated that Stewart was the best back in the '08 draft.
