If he is there in round three I would love the Steelers to draft him. He has a tremendous motor and he is a lot better than most people know. Yes...I think he could hold his own inside in a 3-4.

I would like to get him in the 4th though might have to trade up for him. He would be ideal to sit for a year behind Farrior, learn and play teams.

I agree...but with what McCarthy showed at the senior bowl week I doubt he makes it past the 3rd round.

I would worry about McCarthy's injury history...how is he going to hold up at ILB in the pros with bad shoulders?


One scout says Miami LB not on his team's board

Miami linebacker Colin McCarthy helped his draft stock with a strong showing in the Senior Bowl, but one senior scout for an NFL club told the National Football Post concerns about previous shoulder injuries will prevent his team from considering him.

An honorable mention All-ACC selection this past season when he led the Hurricanes with 119 tackles, McCarthy projects as an inside linebacker and he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds at the combine. He did well for himself in Indianapolis, but the most significant information teams gain there is medical reports.

The scout was quick to say just because McCarthy will not be on his teamís board doesnít mean other teams will not consider him. McCarthy started the first four games of the season in 2008 before a shoulder injury forced him to miss the remainder of the year. He received a medical redshirt, and reports indicate he had as many as three shoulder surgeries while in college.

I think for a 3rd round pick his talent and motor are worth the risk for me.

The shoulder is a pretty unstable joint, especially after previous injuries. It's not really a bony lock of any kind, just the head of the humerus (upper arm) being surrounded and held in place by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. I had a roommate who had a handful of shoulder surgeries (dislocation issues) and his shoulder would literally pop out from moving the wrong way reaching for things.

For a guy who will have a main job description of hitting people with his shoulder, I'd have to say no.
