4. (OG) Kaleb McGary, Washington
6-7, 317: The hype was and probably will be over fellow Washington O lineman Trey Adams – who has to get 100% healthy and regain his form – but McGary turned into a killer when needed for a strong Dawg attack.
With his amazing frame and with good enough all-around athleticism to be tried out at left tackle, he’s a good pass protector who’s tough to get around. The power is the key – you have to be able to run block with force for Chris Petersen – even if he doesn’t look like a typical NFL road grader body-wise.
The big concern in his draft stock will be his position. Is he a slightly-too-rangy guard, or is his a Right Tackle Only?
He’ll always bring the 100% effort, and he can be a nasty tone-setter for a line, but there’s an upside to surprise and be a rock on the outside, or he can be a solid starter with enough versatility to find a home somewhere.
