I've been thinking a lot about the Titans return to an aggressive defense, the possibility of missing a top DT/DE due to our current projected draft position - out of the top 10 and heading toward the middle - and the more I look at this guy, the more I like him...Rolando McClain, MLB, Alabama. The guy's only a junior, but is 6'3" and 256 lbs. He needs a little coverage work, but is okay. Stuffs the run, and can blitz. He's considered, I think, this year's Patrick Willis (and with two picks in round one this year, I bet Singletary would love to add him SF's inside beside Patrick). When we don't have dominant DTs - though we've been doing not bad at all I must say - we need to add something to the interior. If Bulluck is not retained, and McRath will likely take the WILL position in time, McClain could be a perfect addition (better than Spikes, IMO). Tulloch could take the SAM over for Thornton, and McClain would go to the interior. Also, if KB isn't re-signed, Thornton could take that spot next year, giving McRath another year of development, Tulloch could move to SAM, and McClain could possibly start the year on the inside. Did I mention he runs a 4.6 as well? Guy's a beast. He would be our Ray Ray type. Minor off field issues, but undisputed leader on defense, and does very well in the classroom also. I'm liking this pick right now. It's early yet, but I've found some scouting stuff to add. From fftoolbox.com: "2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report: Rolando Mcclain, ILB, Alabama McClain has been a consistent force for Alabama ever since arriving on campus in 2007. He played in all 13 games as a freshman, and started eight before really exploding into prominence as a sophomore. McClain led the team with 95 tackles last season -- including 12 for a loss -- and was a finalist for the Butkus Award (given to the nation's best linebacker). Through five games of the current season, McClain is playing like he wants to be the winner of that award this time around. He is the undisputed leader of a defense that has been dominant most of the time, and -- at the very least -- able to keep the Crimson Tide undefeated heading into the second half of the 2009 campaign. The Atlanta, Georgia product is well-respected as one of the biggest hitters and most feared defenders at the college level, and why not? McClain stands in at 6'4'' and 256 pounds and he reportedly runs a 4.6 in the 40-year-dash. That's a scary combination of size and speed to say the least. He has had some minor off-the-field problems in the past, but nothing that has developed into a major red flag or any kind of case for real concern. Plus, he is an Honor Roll student in the classroom and has earned rave reviews from Alabama coaches regarding his work at spring practices. Assuming McClain leaves after his junior season, he could find himself in the Top 10 of the draft if he finishes well and produces at the combine." From Broncomadness.com: "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. Weaknesses: Needs to work on dropping back into coverage … Displays some immaturity off the field … Might be a bit big for the position of Outside Linebacker … Doesn’t have much hype or buzz right now. 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. "
