Positives: A natural athlete with explosiveness, McClain's size and physicality seem best suited to inside linebacker. ... Flashes instincts for the position. ... Physical at the point of attack to fight through blocks. ... Burst off the snap could allow teams to move him up to the line on third down as a pass rush specialist. ... High-effort pass rusher who keeps fighting to get to the quarterback. ... Good effort in his backside pursuit. Negatives: Flashes instincts, but can be tricked with play-action and may lack the change of direction to break down and make tackles in space as an inside linebacker. ... Lacks the speed to get to the sideline. ... Struggles in his pass drops, making him strictly a two-down run defender at linebacker. ... Marginal use of hands to shed blocks. ... One-dimensional pass rusher who relies on his speed off the edge and hustle.
