Quick Quote:

“Pac-12 offensive tackles are having nightmares about McKinley, who is a dominant speed rusher.” –Mel Kiper

Scouting Report:

Explosive and dynamic at the snap. Is utilizing elite speed and a combination of excellent footwork and pass rush moves to get past and around offensive tackles. Electric first burst. Lacks the length and core strength at this point to be effective as a run blocker, but could be a defensive weapon as a pass rusher with linebacker help, or designated pass rusher. Will be watched for drop back skills as the season progresses as well as through the draft process.
