Overview

McClain is a very disruptive run defender that should be able to contribute immediately in a defensive line rotation. He gets off the ball quickly and has the foot speed to penetrate gaps on stunts. He also has fast strong hands to engage and disengage in an instant to get in running lanes and after the quarterback. He is not an experienced pass rusher at this point, but he has the potential to improve due to his quick feet and hands. McClain brings it on every down and he should not last past the second round.

Analysis

Strengths

McClain is tall enough with very good bulk. Possesses a quick first step and the lateral agility to stunt and slant effectively. Uses quick active hands to shed and gain penetration. Has the range to make plays outside the tackle box. Tough kid with a relentless motor that fights through double teams.

Weaknesses

Does not have the lower body strength to be a two-gap defender and consistently anchor against the run. Not an experienced pass rusher that lacks a powerful bull rush and a repertoire of counter moves. Loses leverage and balance too often. Takes poor pursuit angles at times.
