Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about XAVIER MCKINNEY: Alabama, 6003 201 4.65. Junior entry, two-year starter, Roswell, GA. Third-team All-America and first-team All-SEC. Versatile prospect with experience in the box, as a slot corner, and deep safety. Possesses outstanding footwork with quick pedal and stop and start quickness. Quick to transition to downhill and normally takes a direct path to the ball. Slips blocks on the move and flashes shed ability. On an occasional blitz can hit a gap with burst disrupting backfield action. Aggressive tackling and has made some big hits. Sudden change of direction and chase ability puts him in position to make a lot of plays. Sudden to drive on the ball in the air. Solid ball skills getting his hands to the catch point. Can undercut a route for a pick and bring it back the other way. Has matchup ability and can play off or press. Mirrors route breaks and quickly recovers if separated. Shows the range to cover deep zones and vision to see multiple threats and the quarterback. Has some inconsistency in run support and tackling. Has improved this past season but the issues were still there at times. Coming from deep alignment will take a bad angle at times-under running the play and chasing from behind or missing. At times will come in too high or low on a tackle lacking gather and finish. He usually wraps up but will allow yards after contact. Has flashed outstanding ability and been a consistent playmaker. His versatility will upgrade package flexibility as he can be used at multiple spots. Still has upside and could develop into an elite safety. Did not run well at the Combine. 2019 stats: 95 T, 5.5 TFL, 3 sacks, 5 PBU, 5 QBH, 4 FF, 1 BK, 3 INT (1 TD). OSR:16/24. First/second round. (A-30 7/8, H-8 5/8, VJ-36, SS-DNP).
