Biography: Junior college transfer awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 35/10/2 after 56/12/5 as a junior.
Positives: "Smallish yet athletic defensive line prospect with some upside. Fluid moving in every direction of the field, quickly alters his angle of attack, and plays hard until the whistle blows. Flashes speed off the edge, works his hands well, and plays with good pad level. Has a physical nature to his game, fast in all directions, and keeps his feet driving up the field. Deceptively strong and effective defending the run."
Negatives: Struggles getting off blocks once engaged the point. Neither quick nor fluid moving in reverse when asked to drop off the line. Comes off a somewhat disappointing senior season.
Analysis: "McPhee made a major impact in the SEC during the 2009 season and showed an array of next-level skills. He does not possess classic defensive line size, but his combination of athleticism and explosiveness gives him potential in a variety of defensive systems."
