BIOGRAPHY: "Three-year starter who struggled through an injury-plagued senior campaign and finished the season throwing for 65.9%/586/2/2. Junior totals included 58%/2311/12/8, when he also added 899-yards rushing."

POSITIVES: "Athletic signal caller with a good head for the position. Patient in the pocket, buys time for receivers, and effectively identifies the open pass catcher. Remains poised as the pocket collapses around him, senses pressure, and steps up to avoid it. Stands in and takes a hit in order to get the throw away. Zips the outs, and nicely hits receivers as they are leaving their breaks. Possesses a sense of timing, displays good overall awareness, and has above-average arm strength."

NEGATIVES: Played primarily in a run option system until his senior season. Tends to spray passes around the field. Stands to improve his overall throwing fundamentals.

ANALYSIS: "McGee is a prospect with a good amount of upside potential, and his best playing days are ahead of him. He possesses the size and arm strength to make an NFL roster, yet he needs to complete his game and improve his mechanics."

PROJECTION: Fourth Round
