Scouting Report: Strengths
  • McBride has the size and toughness to be developed as a pass protector.
  • He shows very good balance between the tackles, running behind his pads and packing the power to move a pile. He shows good vision and can exploit cut-back lanes.
  • Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #93. He wrote, "McBride, who ran for 1,371 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 6.72 yards per carry and led the nation with an average of 4.72 yards after contact, cleans 345 pounds and bench-presses 385 and has squatted 550. In addition, he ran the 40 in the low 4.5s."
  • He’s patient, letting blocks develop then accelerating. He runs with a good forward lean and consistently falls forward.
  • He shows exceptional toughness and good balance running between the tackles, and McBride was excellent when it came to finishing runs.
  • His passing game skills are strong. He’s a natural hands catcher who turns upfield quickly in the screen game, and he shows a great feel for setting up wheel routes.
  • McBride runs with violence; he’s capable of thrashing through tacklers, and he has the natural balance to withstand contact.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Loses momentum when McBride gears down to change direction and it takes him a few steps to accelerate back to full speed. Appears indecisive; will dance too much at the line of scrimmage. Lacks natural playmaking ability.
  • McBride seems comfortable in traffic to the point where he doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
  • McBride really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.
