Scouting Report: Strengths
  • McLaughlin gets off the snap quickly, and McLaughlin is consistently able to generate movement at the point of attack, typically finishing those blocks strong.
  • Shows good quickness and flexibility on reach blocks, and he has enough range to get out as a puller.
  • As a pass protector, he plays with good balance and holds up against the bull rush. McLaughlin has strong hands and does a nice job gripping and latching on once he has his hands on the pass rusher.
  • Mauler in the run game, playing with a nasty disposition and showing excellent snap and punch quickness.
  • Shows excellent awareness when presented with stunts and blitzes, and he works well with teammates on combo blocks
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • His physical gifts were enough to get by against collegiate opponents, but McLaughlin had trouble with bull rushers when facing quality competition, which is potentially a problem in the NFL.
  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
  • Whiffs on blocks after beaten initially and lacks range and lateral quickness. Plays too high and without proper leverage, pad level and can be passive.
