I,ve watch some of McClains highlights, and something I always see is him taking about 2 or 3 to seconds to bring down the ball carrier, or waiting for the rest of his team to get there. Now in the NFL thats not going to fly, he's going to try and do that and get leveled.

For a second there I thought you were comparing him to Keith McCants looking at the thread title..

another Alabama linebacker, who ended up being a total bust at 4th overall in 1990.

Junior Seau was picked next after McCants at 5th overall.

Not sure what you mean. I see all the skill in the world in McClain. He sniffed out a screen pass last night and made the running back pay and on a sweep he made a tackle 30 yards up the field saving possibly an even bigger gain. He nearly intercepted a pass 3 yards off the line of scrimmage. This was all last night. I want him on this team

McClain is a ****ing beast and just what we need as a LB on our squad.

Yes! I love making assumptions about a player after only watching a 7 minute highlight reel on the kid.

It's not by chance that I had the correct time. I watched it and it didn't show me much. If you're basing it off the highlight video you'll see he has great instincts and very good side to side speed. Not to mention great coverage abilities.

look man, I hate to break it to you, but you can't draw judgement based on a highlight tape. You just can't. That only takes into account three games out of his whole career. I'm sorry but until you come up with professional scouts questioning his tackling ability, I won't be able to believe you.

take a look at this he gets to the ball quick, BUT still has to have help bring his man down http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZBh00TWlug

Monster football instincts, great football IQ, awesome burst to the football, and a knack for being around the football. What is there not to like about McClain?

I hope he was using the literary device known as Verbal Irony

Dude, what are you talking about?

In that play he's got full grasp on the guy and is spining him down to the ground. If you honestly believe that McClain needed help on that tackle, then there's not a linebacker out there that can tackle. You show that to 10 people and I guarantee all 10 (unless you're one of them) says that McClain made that tackle.
