Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Athletic looking frame with thick lower half, and long, muscular arms. Exhibits good top-end speed and acceleration in space. Displays strong punch and ability to generate a bull rush when he establishes low position/leverage. Will spread out and cover the slot from time to time, and possesses fluid backpedal in space. Possesses active hands on contact and flashes good use of long arms to swim back inside as a rusher. Plays with some physicality and is tough to push back at the line. Persistent worker on the field who plays with energy and aggression. Hasn't seemed to drop off in quickness or speed throughout his college career despite a substantial weight and muscle.

WEAKNESSES: Inconsistent first step off the line, and lacks elite explosiveness off the snap as a rush end. Average change-of-direction ability and agility. Lacks hip flexibility at the edge to make up for inconsistent get-off. Uncertain where he fits at the next level; lacks good experience in space as a traditional linebacker, but doesn't display a great deal of natural pass-rush ability, either.

COMPARES TO: Leroy Hill, OLB, Seattle Seahawks - Like Hill early in his career, McCray exhibits natural athleticism that makes you want to find a spot for him. Considering the growing need for speed and the number of teams utilizing 3-4 alignments on defense, McCray could be a late-round pickup for a team willing to take on a project with some considerable upside.
