    Rolando McClain

    Anyone have a scouting report they'd like to share on McClain? Might run a bit slow, I'm thinking 4.8's, but the dude's a football player...

    Not slow. 4.6s...and plays faster. He's the best storm of when top notch athleticism meets un-teachable instincts.

    Parcells really is a sh!t drafter if he passes on McClain.

    I don't think he's reaching Parcells. I have him at 11 to Denver.

    Ran a 4.74 forty at his pro-day. Right around where I expected him to be.

    Yeah, will he crack 5.0? If so, not by much.

    Not THAT slow. 4.8's wouldn't surprise me and that's not good. I would still take him in the 2nd if I'm a 3-4 team.

    This years Maualuga. He's gonna fall because of concerns of the speed (Maualuga also had some minor character concers so I don't think it'll be a 2nd round fall, but still), but he's also gonna make a GM look really smart come September. Dude can play.

    That is a huge problem for an athlete even with medication. Fernando Pisani of the Edmonton Oilers has it and it has keep him out for long periods of time when it has flaired up badly.

    Just confirmed on roto:

    Rolando McClain-LB-Player Mar. 10 - 5:05 pm et


    Alabama ILB Rolando McClain became winded at the Crimson Tide's Pro Day Wednesday, and revealed afterwards that he has Crohn's disease.
    Jaguars QB David Garrard also has it. The inflammatory disease is treatable, but can cause abdominal pain and complications such as dehydration and arthritis. McClain has dealt with Crohn's since his freshman year in high school. It probably won't knock McClain out of the first round, but can't help.

    And now he shall drop. . . . shame.
