BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a junior and has led the team in tackles ever since. All-Conference selection the past two years posting 115/4/2 as a senior after 143/5/4 during his junior campaign. Will be a 26-year-old rookie next September.
POSITIVES: Explosive, run defending linebacker with outstanding speed. Scrapes well laterally, pursues to the action with speed and stacks well against the run. Effectively uses hand technique to stay off blocks. Gets depth on drops and easily runs downfield with backs in coverage. Alert and displays good concentration. Works hard and gets off the ground to make a tackle.
NEGATIVES: Does not show a good feel for pass defense and does more chasing than actual covering. Gets sucked up the field, takes a lot of missteps and not efficient. Swallowed up at the point and must run around blocks.
ANALYSIS: A tenacious defender who lays it on the line, McCune is a fiery linebacker who gives 100 percent. A bit one dimensional, he may be best on the inside for a 34 defense where he is allowed to freely flow to the action.
