Scouting Report: Strengths
- McMahon moves much better than his relatively squat, square frame would suggest. Fluid and flexible, he’s capable of moving in space and latching on to moving targets at the second level.
- Coordinated when moving to the second level as a run blocker, capable of landing blocks on the move.
- Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #63. He wrote " The 6-4, 300-pounder leads an excellent batch of State linemen with defensive tackle Josh Harris and center Grant Gibson also worthy of spots on this list. McMahon power-cleans over 400 pounds and vertical-jumped 32 inches this offseason."
- Has the agility, technique, and size to contribute early in his professional career. Quick, active hands to latch on to defenders.
- Shows excellent awareness against twists and stunts, and McMahon has the strong, flexible core and wide base to catch and handle moving defenders.
- McMahon has long arms that allow him to survive as a pass protector on the edge, and he typically plays with good balance.
- Hand placement is excellent, and he shows a good understanding of angles when climbing upfield
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Loses stamina and often fails to finish blocks on the second level
- McMahon seems too focused on winning with his hands, too often stopping his feet. McMahon also plays with poor balance in the run game, lunging into contact rather than sinking his hips and delivering a block.
- Finesse blocker with average arm length who doesn't use his hands well to win at the point of attack.
