  • MCClain = Maualuga

    Here is a shocker

    Alabama ILB Rolando McClain is reportedly not even in the top 32 on some teams' draft boards.

    McClain's speed and agility testing will be key because it's believed he may not run better than 4.7 in the forty. 4-3 teams want middle linebackers to have sideline-to-sideline range. McClain may be billed strictly as a 3-4 inside 'backer if he doesn't excel in movement drills over the weekend.

    per rotoworld
    Patriots Draft 2015

    Tatupu ran a 4.8 at the combine right? I don't see why mcclain running in the 4.7's should hurt him.

      McClain is faster than Maualuga with much better intangibles.

        Agree.

          That's so much crap.

          McClain will be the 1st LB drafted, may not make it out of the top 10, more likely top 5.

          Source: Any mock drafts by anyone who watched McClain last yr.

              I don't know why you would pay a 3-4 ILB, or a 4-3 MLB that kind of money, when you can get more or less the same prospect(Brandon SPikes) in the late first or second. Unless the LB is an elite,once every 10 year type of guy, I would trade down to get him.

                That's ok. He can fall all the way to 18 and the Steelers will snatch him up and he'll be another long time starter for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

                  It's really no surprise to me that McClain doesn't have a first round grade from some teams. All of this stuff is really scheme specific. I mean, McClain was a great player in college, with great intangibles, and he should do well if he lands in the right spot in the NFL; but at the same time if you run a Tampa 2 style defense, where are you going to put him? Plus, he plays in a position with relatively low position value.

                  Anyway, I'm betting this isn't so much news, since excepting the very elite prospects, most first round guys probably don't have a top 32 grade from somebody.

                    When I watched Mcclain, I thought he had great sideline-to-sideline range. Look back at that Florida game and watch Mcclain tackle a trackstar on the sideline. This guy is going to be a stud in the NFL and won't drop out of the top 10.

                      Less, in my opinion, and it's not close.

                          If we're talking about falling in the draft, I think Spikes could suffer the same fate as Maualuga.

                            I actually think he could play a Tampa 2 MLB. To me he has the size and speed.

                              I would be shocked if he looks agile in drills and runs a good 40. 4.8 are my expectations.
