Strong Points: Natural size, strength and power. Balance -- seldom off his feet. Effective on combo blocks and getting to second level. Efficient puller. Good hand use -- keeps them inside. Adequate bend. Anchors in pass pro. Strong punch to jolt opponents. Starter since midway through freshman year.
Weak Points: Not a nifty athlete. Speed deficient. Struggles mirroring wide speed -- can he hold up vs. fast NFL edge rushers?
The Way We See It: McGary was a very consistent and durable performer for Washington, where he stepped in as a starter midway through his freshman year, never missing any time. His tape is solid and reveals a consistent game and strength as a run blocker. If McGary has a problem, it's that he isn't a quick-footed guy who can handle wide speed in pass protection. He must learn to set a little quicker and be flatter with his angles. Even then, he might be better off playing guard in the NFL, where he can be a force as a run blocker and won't have to deal with as much speed. We like almost everything about his play except his lack of lateral agility. He's a player, but one with some limitations. Offensive line coaches will like McGary.
