Scouting Report: Rolando McClain

November 13, 2009

Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama

Strengths: Very versatile, Can play in either 3-4 or a 4-3 at both ILB or OLB … Very solid tackler, rarely misses … Good blitzer … Playmaker … Is very decisive on the field, knows when to stay back and when to blitz … Fast for his size (6-4, 260) … Quite productive with great upside.

Overview: The key word when describing Rolando McClain is versatile. McClain can play any Linebacker position on any team. That should make him a hot commodity on draft day. His decisiveness should also make himself very popular to scouts. Unlike most Inside Linebackers, he probably won’t drop out of the first round because he can also play other positions much like Patrick Willis from a few years ago.
