I think Mike Singletary would like to chime in with his opinion: Link
One person who seems sold completely on McClain is a Hall of Fame middle linebacker who now coaches the San Francisco 49ers.
"He's a heckuva football player," Mike Singletary said today before addressing reporters from a podium at the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.
"Intelligence, toughness, awareness, instincts. That's probably his No. 1 quality. ... Anybody that gets him is getting a good football player."
McClain, what are you thoughts on playing in the 3-4?
In fact, McClain said he'd be more comfortable as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
Like I said in a different thread, Berry and McClain are the two SAFEST picks in this draft.
I was about to post this, but saw yours.
Singletary, in interviews, seems enamored with McClain, and it isn't because of hype, it is because he has actually watched game tape and not Youtube. I think I trust Singletary's opinion on linebackers more than the original posters opinion.
