BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors last season after totaling 39/11/2.5 and intercepting one pass. Junior-year totals included 51/14.5/6.

POSITIVES: Explosive, undersized tackle with abilities as a three-technique lineman or in a one-gap system. Plays with great leverage, quickly gets off the snap with a terrific first step, and keeps his feet driving up the field. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt, smooth changing direction, and plays smart football. Fires through the small gaps of the offensive line and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage.

NEGATIVES: Undersized, easily knocked off balance, and handled at the point of attack by a single blocker. Limited growth potential.

ANALYSIS: McClinton is a hard-charging defensive lineman who penetrates well. He has the intensity and mentality to earn a backup spot at the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
