According to his agent, McClain has been receiving treatment on an injured hamstring twice per day since last monthís Senior Bowl, although as a junior McClain didnít play in the Mobile all-star game. The agent also said McClain has undergone two MRIs, but did not reveal the results. McClain is expected to workout at the Alabama pro day on March 10.

    Thanks for the update. Here's the link on all the LBs that I referred to. It shows Spoon as running a 4.57.

    If you are basing this on one game--an exhibition game--then I think you would miss what scouts are seeing...

    He is being comapred to Steve Hutchinson by many scouts.
    I am not saying he cant be a good player....I just think he is too risky at 1/18. No guards have been taken in the first round the last 2 years. I have seen some writers comparing him to Hutch not many scouts though.

    Even if Iupati translates into a good player, why do we need another trapping, Samoan mauler of a guard when we just paid Kemo? Is Urbik already a bust? I think there are more poorly manned positions on defense where we can get a player of equivalent caliber. Just say no to Iupati

    1. Cody...ughh.
    2. Micah Johnson...knee problems are a red flag.
    3. Any QB not named Webb or Edwards.
    4. Any OL described as "zone-blocker".
    5. Any DB described as "poor tackler".
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
