Draft Analysis:

Miami lands a high ceiling slot corner with this pick. McCain is on the smaller side but he's tough as nails and displays the ball skills to capitalize on errant throws. --Mark Dulgerian

  • 30 1/2" Arm Length

  • 9" Hands



Quick-twitch athlete. Can sky to disrupt at the high point. Pivots, flips hips and accelerates from a standstill. Plus burst to ball. Outstanding instincts and anticipation in off-man and zone coverage. Can click and close to limit yards after catch or make plays on the ball. Plays with soft hands and grabbed 11 interceptions over last two seasons. Makes plays outside of his area. Feisty. Desires to help in run support and doesn't hold back. Fights through average blockers and gets to his target. Wrap-up tackler. Bright eyes on field. Digests combo routes and plays. Played outside and over slot. Was a capable kick returner.


Lacks desired height and frame to be an outside cornerback. Doesn't seem to trust technique when asked to backpedal and mirror. Mixed bag in press-man coverage. Gets turned and disoriented by outside-in releases. Issues with transition awareness and feel for receiver out of press-man. Lacks confidence with back to ball. Appears to be quicker than fast. Outmuscled by bigger receivers. Gets caught leaning against two-way options from slot.

Bottom Line

Undersized slot corner with instincts to anticipate and the twitch and ball skills to do something about it. Much more comfortable processing and attacking from an off position and loses effectiveness when forced to play with his back to the ball. His 19 passes defensed and 11 interceptions over his last 22 starts are indicative of his athleticism and talent to play on the next level but he could be scheme dependent.
