During his NFL Combine interview, Auburn OT Marcus McNeill said he has interviewed with the New York Jets, San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins.

I wouldn't die if they went with McNeill



And is this the right forum? I know it's draft but it's directly related to what our guys are doing in Indy.

I like McNeil alot for Miami. He's got the physical skills to be a hell of a player with Houck. I'm a little concerned about his rumored back problems, though.

Considering alot of the posters here dont seem to understand the concept of different forums for different topics, you're doing a-ok by me.

i have a feeling that since we are looking at a guy that might go later on in the 1st round like 20+ we might be looking to trade down...unless we think there is a chance he will be there with our 2nd pick but thats unlikely....read between the lines...thanks F-CAT.

I like Mcneil too. I didnt realize he was 6'9" with long arms. I wonder why he is not a first round prosect with a lot of people cus some of what i have read says not much weakness with this guy but maybe weight probs.

If we were to get Brees, I would absolutely love to get two OLinemen. Nick Mangold and Mcniel would do it for me. I would be happy with that alone if Brees comes here.

Nothing Personal against Marcus but I hope we don't get this guy.
He has really slow feet, he's not good at blocking at the second level, he doesn't use his hands well. He has poor pass blocking technique. I hate to see a LT that has slow feet. He's good at the point of attack because of his size. I just hope we don't spend a 1st rounder on him.

He certainly has a Man-Beast body and freakish height. But some scouts feel his body and height are actually a concern since he has suffered from and experienced lower back problems a few times. It certainly seems to be related.

And if you know anyone with LBP it can turn a giant into a small, small, person real quick. Hopefully he tests out ok, and the medical reports come back ok, but without that he could slip or be a risk.

you see what he's doing? he's grading mcneill's abilities, not just placing an abstract grade on him. it's what scouts do.

It's a good thing McNeil is a RT then. :cooldude:

I also see something here as far as talking to guys who are graded in the bottom of the 1st rd. Maybe Saban has a team in mind that will like to move up to #16.
As far as McNeil, if his back checks alright, he could be a good RT for us. Allowing Carey to move back to LT. It all depends how his back checks out. The rumor has been that its spinal stenosis. If thats the case, team will shy away from a player who may have a short NFL career do to narowing of the spine.

He plays LT at Auburn. Your probably thinking of Winston Justice.

You are right he does play LT but he did lineup at RT as well.

For those who think he's slow, he has been timed in under 5.0 for the 40 this past year. Not bad for someone over 340 pounds.

I can see that somebody will start a thread about every player that we talk to.I think that Nick will go after free agents when it comes to the o-line but he'll draft defence as he wants to get younger there.

Ozzy rules!!

He is a right tackle too at hte next level most likely. I agree with you.

... He has really slow feet, he's not good at blocking at the second level...
Second level? Since when do you need a tackle to get to the second level? His job is to elimate that playmaker DE and wall off any other would be tacklers giving the RB a cutback lane. The Center, Guards, & WR's take care of the second level.

When evaluating the LT you want to know if he has the feet to keep his balance in pass protection and the size/arm length to handle the speed rushers.

His size is find for speed rushers (arm size that is) and he is great for run blocking but his footwork and foot speed project more as a Right tackle then left tackle in the NFL according to most scouts.

Still trading back and getting him could be interesting. He should be there in the late 20s

I agree...I'd rather see him at RT...But I can't see us using our 1st round on a RT. I see McNeill as a 2nd rounder. Because of his slow feet and not using his long arms to his advantage.

Mcneal is a LT....The guy hasnt given up a sack in 41 straight games...The only weaknest ive seen from him granted i dont get to see all his games...Remember hes the 1 who was paving the pathes for RR express and Caddy.

He has to be on our radar with us dropping down if possible...In drafts like these if certain players(we all know)dont fall to us then we see whats on the table if any is intereted in Lendale....RW's saga has opened up the possibility of Lendale white being drafted by us and someone wanted to jump up and snatch him.

I am all for Mcneal at LT just maybe not at 16...Brick is the only LT/RT/WhateverT thats worth this pick if LT is the way we have to try to move down.

If any of you guys want to see McNeill play. Here's a link that you can watch him play 2 full games. Edit: just click the Auburn games.

You are so right that a 16 for him would just kill me but if we trde down and pick up another pick I would be all for it.

I still say pay Bentley whatever he wants and go DB/S at 16
This would make me very happy!:D
