    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.

    Thanks for the film. It looked like at varying times, he either completely had his way vs. the opposition, or just made really bad mental mistakes. Needs a good deal of coaching IMHO.

    He looked particularly bad on some of those screens.

    But in total, I'd say he's a guy to get excited about. Like the pick!! Wouldn't be surprised if he lands at RT at some point.
    There's no such word as "Imgrate".

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...
