BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons after spending half his freshman campaign with the first team. Led Miami in tackles as a senior posting 80/10/5.5 after career-best numbers of 111/13/4 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Physically gifted linebacker with the skills to be a three-down defender. Forceful up the field, collapses from the outside defending the run and gets depth on drops. Displays skill in pursuit and plays with a good degree of explosion. Holds his ground against blocks, chases to get involved in the action and works hard.
NEGATIVES: Does not consistently play under control, over-pursues the action and gets caught out of position. Suffered with both back and shoulder injuries the past two years.
ANALYSIS: A motivated linebacker who leads by example, McIntosh is a solid athlete with the skills to play at the next level. Needs to fine-tune his game and, most importantly, stay healthy to have any chance of breaking into a starting lineup.
