BIOGRAPHY: Started every game as a senior, totaling 11/64 on the ground and adding 20/175/3 as a receiver. Rotated in and out of the starting lineup the prior two seasons. Junior receiving totals were 18/140/2.
POSITIVES: Well-built lead blocker who is effective as a pass-catcher. Displays power at the point of attack, anchors in pass protection and blocks down well on opponents. Quickly picks up blitzes, slides his feet and squares into opponents.
NEGATIVES: Showed limited blocking intensity last season. Decelerates at the point of attack, does not give much effort to finish blocks nor does he play to his size. Limited speed and ineffective carrying the ball.
ANALYSIS: A naturally strong lead blocker who flashes versatility in his game, McClain has enough power and talent to make it at the next level. Must first prove he is willing to do the little things and give consistent effort.
