I know he was a legal nightmare and a mental question mark, but he was a stud at Bama' and you can't coach up size and speed.
He's had several tangles with the law, but he's only 24. He's been away from the game for a year and he might have matured a little and realized what he walked away from.
He got all that money and fame, and the bad influences that come with it. He was more into parties and panties than his playbook.
If he would sign on for an incentive laced minimum deal with no bonus, I think he would be a good MLB with coaching and the mindset/standard PM projects. Plus, it would give Von Miller a close personal reference of the danger of losing focus, even as a top-10 pick.
I wanted McClain in the draft in 2010. His NFL career to date has been unspectacular. I biased because of his play at Alabama. I didn't watch him as a Raider.
He goes 6'4" 250. He speed is average.
