Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAKKARIST MCKINLEY: UCLA, 6020 250 4.61. Two-year starter from Richmond, CA. Played one season of junior college football at Contra Costa College. First-team All-Pac 12 selection by the coaches. Finished second in the conference in sacks and tackles for loss. A non-stop motor. Extremely quick at the snap with a sudden burst off the ball. An ideal candidate to play a 3-4 outside linebacker with his hand on the ground in passing situations. Productive and dependable against the run. Strong tackling presence. Flexible enough to lower his hips as he turns the edge. Will make plays all over the field. Gets his hands up to break up the short passing game. Good reactions and quick twitch. Needs more core strength. Will get caught peeking in the backfield. Ineffective bull rush, barely gets movement on a blocker. Can improve his pass rush moves and counters. Struggles with the play right at him. Will need work in pass coverage. Quick to recover after being initially beat. High upside prospect who shows glimpses of tools that are tough to come by. He is a plus-straight line athlete who has some of the best speed of all pass rushers in the class in addition to the strength to play a stout role against the run. A true every-down impact type player. There is a skill set that needs to be developed though, as he shows several inconsistencies from a technique point of view. Needs to prove he can stay healthy, as well. 2016 stats: 61 T, 18 TFL, 10 sacks, 6 PBU, 3 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 1.89, right 1.97. OSR:23/ 51. First/second round. (A-34 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-24, SS-4.64).
