  • Matt McCants, OT 6th rd

    2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
    Matt McCants, OT, UAB
    Matt McCants is one of the top mid-major prospects hailing out of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. As a member of the Blazers, he's now a three-year starter at left tackle and earned All-Conference USA first-team last season.


    McCants has an elite frame for an offensive tackle with very long arms and above average footwork. He is not completely filled out and is a couple years away from reaching his full girth. His great hand-eye coordination gives him a great punch while sliding out into pass protection. McCants has great range in establishing an edge or if asked to block on the second level. For a man his size, he moves tremendously well.

    When he caught out of position, he needs to learn to stay disciplined through his techniques and keep his natural bend. That said, NFL scouts are going to be all over this young man when they see him in person during pro days and the NFL combine.

    McCants didn't do himself any favors by only having 17 bench press reps to go along with an average combine performance.

He does resemble Beatty some, and needs to get stronger, but if he does get stronger, hes gonna be a beast, becuase hes got the long arms, quick feet, and athletic ability to keep fast DE"s off the QB...

              McCants hah? 2 OTs drafted. I guess Reese sees no value in a S, DE or DT?


              Edit: I meant no value in the 6th rd for a S, DE or DT

                    McCants played tuba in the band before coming out for football




                    Looks like he has a nice nasty streak!

                      I like it. We gotta trust Flaherty here guys with these two kids. At least one of them will work. Book it.

                        I'm 6'4 235 w/ long arms & consistenly put up 225 20-23 times every time I do chest/tris....

                        I don't understand how these 300+lbs guys come to the combine doing anything less than 25

                          Yeah because strength is an impossible attribute to improve on!

                          By the way they said he has room to add bulk to his frame and bench press strength does not always equate to strength and power on the field.
