Strengths: McClellin is an athletic and versatile pass rusher – Might be the most versatile defender in the draft, having played DE, OLB and ILB throughout college career – Shows very good pass rush potential out of both 3-point and 2-point stance – Great explosion off the snap, often beats the OT off the ball – Keeps pads low and shows good knee and ankle flexion while turning the corner – Has a variety of pass rush moves, including a shoulder dip and rip move – Exhibits tremendous change of direction and lateral movement skills – Excellent closing speed, and powerful tackler – Chases the ball on every play, plays until the whistle and motor never stops – Great timing on blitzes, able to disguise and change up angles he blitzes from – Proved at the Senior Bowl that he can play linebacker and cover backs and tight ends – Displayed fluid hips and good feet while in pass coverage – Tremendous football IQ, impressed coaches with how quick he learned new position in Mobile – Plays aggresive and trusts his instincts – Above average run defender – Shows the ablitiy to set the edge, in the run game and keep contain – Plays with an intensity that rubs off on the other players – Will be able to play any edge position in the NFL and contribute on all special teams units – Natural leader.
Weaknesses: Doesn’t have a natural position and may end up playing ILB at the next level – While he displayed the ability to cover, he will have to become much more comfortable and natural with his drops – Not as good a pass rusher standing up as he is with his hand in the ground, so may limit him as a 3-4 pass rusher – More of a maximum effort player, rather than natural athlete, although I’m not sure that is a negative.
