Biography: Three-year starter and Stanford?s leading tackler since his sophomore season. Totals last year included 83/2/4 after 76/4 after 76 tackles and four interceptions as a junior. Sophomore totals included a career-high 114 tackles.
Positives: Run-defending safety with good size. Effectively diagnoses the action, is fast up the field, and displays a burst of closing speed. Remains disciplined with assignments, willingly throws his pads into the pile, and flies around the action trying to stop ball handlers. Wraps up tackling and brings opponents down on initial contact.
Negatives: Inefficient and does not consistently take proper angles to the action. Usually a half-step late arriving on the scene in coverage. Does not display a quick break to the ball or the ability to follow receivers out from their routes.
Analysis: McNally is a downhill safety with a one-dimensional style. Best off in a zone type of system, he has a special teams mentality, which will give him and upper hand in camp this summer.
