Analysis:

Keith McGill has imposing, dominant size and the athleticism to back it up. The problem seems to be his attitude. He does not have great fundamentals, he doesn’t play with urgency and he doesn’t support his team in the running game. Most importantly, he plays small. A man his size should dominate whoever is across from him. He plays passively and with finesse. McGill is a project player with a ton of upside. A team with two good corners and time do groom him would do well to take McGill and see what they can make out of him. He will probably be over drafted due to his measureable. Depending on round he is drafted in, McGill could be a boom or bust pick, or a sleeper pick
