On the Hoof: He will remind people of former Florida State and NFL star Tommy Polley. He has excellent height, but is very lean at this time for the defensive side of the ball. It will be difficult for him to add more weight on his frame as long as he continues to play basketball.
Needs Improvement: He is more of a straight-line receiver and lacks the lateral movement and body control you are looking for in a big-time receiver. McCay also needs to improve his route running, which should help create more separation.
Most Impressive: Defensively, he does an excellent job of catching plays from behind. He also has the ability to turn and run in pass coverage with any tight end or running back. His athletic potential is off the charts as his 40-plus inch vertical leap proves.
Conclusion: In his heart, he would prefer to be a receiver, but his skill set screams linebacker all the way. He will most likely redshirt, while he finds out where he best fits on his future football team.
