STRENGTHS - Magee has very good footwork and turns his hips well, both for coverage and to change direction. Reacts well to plays and the direction of the play and closes well on the ball. Does a solid job of getting into coverage. Solid speed and quickness and does a solid job going sideline to sideline. Snaps his wrists quickly to break away from blocks, and has good range to make the tackler. Solid tackler, good form.
WEAKNESSES - While he turns his hips well, his change of direction speed could improve, needs to explode better. Needs to explode better to a play when playing in zone coverage. At times over-reacts to a play and will whiff on a tackle. Can be physical but needs to be much more physical and fight off the blocks more than he does.
SUMMARY - Magee gets off the snap well and has the ability to react well to the play. He has the ability to close quickly on a run play and also has the ability to get into coverage quickly. He is solid in m2m defense, and covers ground well in a zone set. He turns his hips well which allows him to play solid coverage. He has very good footwork and slides his feet very smoothly. Cuts nicely on his blitzes and has the ability to get to the quarterback fairly well. He has excellent range and has a knack for making great tackles from behind. He shows a quick flick of the wrists to break away from blocks in the open field to make a play on the ball. Magee can be physical but I would like to see him become more physical and show more fight in him. There are also times where he will over-react to a play and completely whiff on a tackle. He has the quickness to explode to a play and the speed to make plays sideline to sideline. Overall I feel Magee is right on the brink of being an average starter to a backup at this point. I do see athletic ability in him that will allow him to improve if he chooses. He is a very smart and sound football player and can be a solid contributor.
