This scouting report is about as positive as I've seen for McCullers and it says that McCullers is not a great athlete and can't convert pressures into sacks because he's very slow. If you have evidence of him being able to run a 4.9, I'd love to see it, but it doesn't show up on tape or in the explosion drills (vertical and broad jump).
I think a lot of the problem is there are mixed breakdowns of McCullers. I've seen websites that talk about how explosive and fast he is... Or how he is an amazing athlete for his size. I was under the impression that was the case when I did this mock. If he is what you are claiming him to be then I probably don't want him.. I'd rather take somebody like the DT from penn state or a lineman from LSU.
I used this website as part of the reason for drafting him
There it claims he has broken 5 and runs anywhere from 5-5.3
I watched his highlight tapes, and on there he had some moves that were pretty impressive for a guy his size, he does show a lot of promise.
I think we do an amazing job at developing defensive lineman- I wanted him originally because I saw his frame and found out he had the speed to go with it, not to mention the brute strength.
I'm going to watch some more tape on him and I'll report back... Thanks for the FU on this, I was originally thinking his story might have been a little too good to be true so it helps hearing it from both sides.
I see you are on the east coast, did you watch him play?
