BIO: Moved into the starting lineup midway through his junior campaign, recording 38/11, and followed up with 37/5 as a senior.

POSITIVES: Tremendous athlete with a large upside. Plays to his timed speed, stays downfield with opponents or runs with receivers anywhere on the field. Has terrific range and recovers from mistakes because of his speed. Reliable open-field tackler.

NEGATIVES: Struggles in zone coverage, late reacting and loses assignments. Does not have an interception the past two seasons.

ANALYSIS: A tremendous athlete with solid size and great speed, McPhearson is an unpolished cornerback still learning the game. Needs time and repetition but has the underlying skills to succeed at the next level.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round
