    And you voice opinions off in an "inflammatory fashion?" Is that your way of justifying your pretentiousness when it isn't tied to your name?

    For the record, Bleacher Report isn't a major sports site, so you can just drop the charade.
    Agreed, and I do not work for Bleacher report. And no, it not a justification, it is merely a reason as to to why I am uncomfortable divulging who I am.

    This isn't true.... as I have said before. He displayed excellent tackling technique in college. Yes, there were plays where he would use his arms and drag a guy down, but I never thought tackling would be his issue in the NFL.

    Glad to see others are coming out of the woodwork who weren't so high on McClain. I knew I couldn;t have been the only one.

    That's fine, then. Why don't you just post the sites? The major ones have dozens of writers, how could we determine which is you?

    Because process of elimination would make figuring me out relatively easy. I will tell say, because you are so damn persistent, that the biggest site I write for begins with Pro Football __________ (could it be weekly, talk, focus?). That is as far as I am willing to go with this, as I have been explicitly told not to parade around as a representative of my employer whilst browsing fan forums and the like. So, I will not give you anymore info.

    Then why bring it up in the first place?

    I'm calling bull**** to your claim

    How would your sites even know that this is you parading.

    Here, let me try. I write for PFT -- Now, piss off.

    Let's see who gets fired from PFT now....

    I explained why I even mentioned it in an earlier post. Call BS, shenanigans, etc.... doesn't change my employment status. Regardless, as I have access to college 22 tape, would anybody like insight into any of the current players in the draft this year?

    Yes, what is your opinion on Colton Chapple?

    Admittedly, this is not a guy I have watched a ton of tape on. So I am basing my assessment on about an hour worth of analysis. Chapple is another prospect where his height and weight are going to be held against him. He is right around 6 feet (some list him at 6'1") and comes in at an unimpressive 195 pounds. Yes, Chapple is fast (both in his 40 time and on the field), having rushed for 600 yards this year, and yes, Chapple commanded a Harvard offense who performed very well this year, but he is NOT a premier passer. Having watched some of his tape, one of my biggest issues is his happy feet. Even with no defender near him, Chapple tends not to set his feet properly, and it comes off as he is constantly thinking about taking off running. He almost looks nervous on every drop back. Yes, his stats were prolific, but I simply do not see it translating into NFL success UNLESS he is drafted by a team looking to insert him as an option guy (and that is still no guarantee). Another issue I have with him is that not only is he short, but his frame is absolutely tiny. This is a guy Harvard lists at 6'2", yet doesn;t even have 200 pounds on his slight frame. He gets absolutely manhandled by d lineman if they get a hand on him, which doesnt bode well for his ability to avoid being sacked.

    Another gripe I have with him is his lengthy release. I dislike his release mechanics and he needs to work on getting the ball out his hands faster.

    What was also apparent was his lack of at the line pre and post snap progressions.

    While he does have some pop on his short to intermediate passes, he doesn't display above average velocity.

    He displays above average touch on his passes, but lacks downfield accuracy.

    Chapple does display a great "pocket clock" and knows when to get rid of the ball.


    I have chapple ranked right around the 20-30th best QB prospect in the draft.


    With more time, I could give you a more in depth analysis. As this was based off of tape from his games against Princeton, Penn and Yale.
