Notes:
First-team All-SEC as both a sophomore and junior...Helped lead Alabama to the national title in 2009...Decided to skip his senior season and is widely considered the top inside linebacker in this draft class...Key to the 2009 Crimson Tide defense that ranked fourth nationally in total defense (242.2 ypg) and second in run defense (68.2 ypg)...Like a coach on the field, McClain made all of the defensive calls and got his teammates in position tosucceed...A true leader capable of contributing immediately at the NFL level...At 6-4 and 249 pounds, McClain has ideal size for an NFL middle linebacker...Makes plays from sideline to sideline, capable of tracking down the quickest of RBs...Seems to always take the best route to the ball...A playmaker who intercepts passes and blitzes the QB...Posted 105 tackles in 2009, including 14.5 TFLs...Played in a 3-4 scheme at Alabama...Plays well in pass coverage despite less-than-ideal change of direction ability...Tremendous football instincts...A tremendous hitter and a sure tackler...The instinctive McClain gives the Raiders a physical presence on defense.
