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.
