Overview

McCray is a big, physical safety from Arkansas State who could develop into a future starter in the NFL if put in the right scheme. A former high school quarterback, it is evident that McCray is able to key in on plays as a safety and make the pre-snap reads to put himself in a good position. He has the size to cover tight ends and the physicality to be a presence on the back end.

Analysis

Strengths

McCray will bring a physical presence to any defensive backfield in the NFL. Somewhat reminiscent of Ravens safety Bernard Pollard, Kelcie can provide run support or play real effectively in the intermediate range when defending the pass. He excels in run support and is a physical, bruising tackler. He has great speed for the position to run plays down, and he has been durable and reliable throughout his career. He is a competitive hitter and looks natural in transition and in his backpedal. He has the ability to break on a ball and play the man competitively both at the point of attack and in the air.

Weaknesses

McCray has pre-snap issues that affect his play and could hinder his development early on in the league. He has a tendency to stay in his back pedal for extended periods of time and will break late on plays; it's almost as if his feet are not coming with his eyes when he's diagnosing a play. He has the speed and athletic ability to catch up in the conference he's been playing in, but unless he can get his pre-snap reads down quicker and develop an ability to diagnose run or pass early, he could have an extended development phase.
