The Utes usually don't want to play a very physical defensive backfield, something has confused me for years because of the guys they manage to recruit. It was always about being able to run with the offensive player. Which is something funny because Sean Smith is one stiff hipped mofo in the NFL now.
My favorite thing about McGill's game that I saw in person during the spring and during a few games was an ability to play around a WR to defend passes, even if the receiver had the inside on him he usually contested them well.
Oh no doubt McGill has good coverage skills, very fluid, but I just wanna see the 9ers pick up a CB with a meanstreak, like GIlbert, Joyner and Dennard show. I don't wanna see another Carlos Rogers, a nice guy that gets burnt all the time. And one thing is for sure too, hes definitely better in coverage than Sean Smith, that dude just gets roasted.
So like American Idol, it's a yes for me.
