Pros:

– Solid tackler, very physical
– Versatility
– Flexibility

Cons:

– Deep Range

Summary:

McKinney is a very talented player that excels at blitzing and tackling in open space. He is a plug and play starter playing. McKinney isn’t best suited for deep range coverage at least for now. He will be a game changer for one of the 32 teams in the 2020 draft. His skills should keep him on the field with his good coverage skills. McKinney will be a menace for NFL defenses for a long time in the NFL. Xavier McKinney is projected as a top 25 pick.
