LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -The father of Arkansas star Darren McFadden denied a report that he has sent paperwork to the NFL so his son can enter the upcoming draft.
ESPN.com, citing unidentified sources, reported that Graylon McFadden provided the relevant paperwork early this week.
``I hate to be saying anything because all these false stories and everything are floating around,'' Graylon McFadden told The Associated Press on Saturday. ``But no I didn't - and that's all I've got to say.''
Darren McFadden, a junior tailback, was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2006 and 2007. His entry into the NFL draft would come as no surprise. He's second on the Southeastern Conference's single-season and career rushing lists after running for 1,830 yards this past season and 4,590 during his three-year career.
The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft is next Tuesday. Felix Jones, Arkansas' other talented junior tailback, has said he'll announce his intentions Monday.
