Goal line fullback.
I like the pick. There is a good chance that he never amounts to anything, and he may be practice squad material. But I like grabbing a massive player with raw ability. If Mitchell develops him, this could be a great value, even if he is never anything more than a two down player. If not, it's the 215th pick.
Its odd, because when you look at him, he doesn't look like a heavy NT. Even though he's 350+ lbs, he actually looks quite svelte since that weight is spread out over a 6'7" frame. Casey was one kind of NT, McLendon is an entirely different style, and McCullers is a different beast altogether. I prefer my nose tackle to be low to the ground to get better leverage, but Big Mac's wingspan could keep OL from getting into his body, and he could also give you the extra dimension of battling down passes from the middle.

I don't think we want a "duck-footed short-stepper" as a goal-line fullback.
Sounds like he could swat down some passes, given his size.
