Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Fluid mover with decent speed and his length allows him to cover effectively downfield
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • His ball skills are very good. McGlothern tracks the ball well downfield and has the hands and coordination to come away with interceptions even when McGlothern isn’t targeted often.
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • Can get up on the line of scrimmage and deliver a solid punch early in routes, then use that quickness to shadow, or back off and close quickly when the ball comes out
  • Shows good instincts when facing the action in zone coverage, and he has solid ball skills.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Susceptible to the big plays as a gambler at the catch point and as a catch-and-run victim. He’s also too reluctant to come up and make hits in run support, often focusing on the strip more than the tackle.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • Rght now he’s only capable of playing in trail position, and even then he’d likely be draw a lot of flags.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
