Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BENARDRICK MCKINNEY: Mississippi State, 6041 246 4.66. Junior entry. Three-year starter from Tunica, MS. Improved his overall level of play throughout the 2014 season. An easy mover who creates a tremendous amount of force in short areas. His physical gifts outweigh his skill set, but he is steadily improving the nuances and reading ability of the linebacker position. Versatile athlete who lines all up all over the field, capable of wearing different hats. Explosive and fast athlete in space. Can turn speed into power quickly. Functionally strong in short areas, can deliver a violent pop to blockers and ball carriers. Incredible wingspan and reach as a tackler. Wraps up his target after powerful initial contact. Effective blitzer. Can get off blockers using different ways to shake free. Bends well and can play a low pad level game. Strong hands to grip and rip off a blocker. Effective in coverage with loose hips and quick acceleration. Has the speed to hang with receivers in space. Better athlete than he is a football player. Delayed reads when in traffic. Doesn’t keep his head on a swivel and can be fooled by play action and counters. Takes too many false steps. Inconsistent to get himself in position to make plays against the inside run. 2014 stats: 71 T, 8 TFL, 3 sacks, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.21, right 2.20. OSR:4/17. Third/fourth round. (A-33, H-9, BP-16, SS-4.27).
