Draft Rewind 2011 - Colin McCarthy - Tennessee Titans

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about COLIN MCCARTHY: Miami, 6012 235 4.65. Three-year starter who can run and has good athletic ability. Active. Averaged 10 tackles per game as a senior playing inside linebacker. Competitive and intense in his play. Top effort player with a high motor. Quick initial read and react, does a nice job getting downhill and to the ball. Smart player, good angles to the ball and quality drops in coverage with good zone awareness. Good technique, uses his hands well to take on blocks and redirects off the block to the ball. Above average footwork when attacking a block. Occasionally will under run a play but for the most part is extremely instinctive with an excellent nose for the ball. Takes good drops in coverage, reacts well on the throw with no wasted steps. Good coverage awareness, sees the receiver and the quarterback. Has good range in pursuit and plays fast with no wasted movement. He is a quality linebacker who played well both inside and outside. Has a chance to be a productive “blue collar” NFL starter. Will contribute on special teams. Career stats: 304 tackles, 34 1/2 TFL, 4 sacks, 6 PBU. Edge speed:left 2.13, right 2.41. OSR:7/44.
