I like McClain alot too. If the pieces fall right, I wouldnt mind picking him(Suh, McCoy, Clausen, Okung, Locker)
Any way to get his talent on the field more is a positive. It also allows Shaughnessy to play more snaps, which makes the most sense since he is the more complete every-down end. This is what I like to see and hope for from our coaching staff - better utilization of our players, particularly our youth.
I'm ready to roll with Gradkowski into next year if the right QB isn't available through trade or the draft. There is no part of me that wants to deal with Russell, and would rather continue to see Bruce build a rapport with our receivers/backs, and the overall precision and timing of the offense.
We need to go OT in round one under almost any circumstance, imo, however if the front office doesn't feel the same way then McCain would be an outstanding BPA we could go to.
