STRENGTHS - McGee has a good combination of height and bulk. He shows a great willingness to mix it up in the run and shows sound tackling technique. He uses his hands well to jam receivers at the line and and knock receivers off there routes. He has good quick feet to close on receivers which allow him to keep receivers from gaining yards after the catch.
WEAKNESSES - A big concern for Brandon is his inability to make plays on the ball or create turnovers, after only have 2 interceptions in college. He is much more of a straight line athlete and struggles to adjust in space especially on double moves. Receivers with elite speed can easily get over the top of him and make big plays. Lacks great instincts when ball is in the air.
SUMMARY -Brandon McGee is a three year starter at the cornerback position for this Hurricane Defense. He is an extremely physical corner and is at his best when in zone and in run support. He shows good athleticism, with solid speed but is not a burner which causes him trouble on covering post routes or on double moves and needing to recover. He lacks fluid hips which is why he struggles to readjust in space. Overall, he is best suited to move to the safety position at the NFL Level. He would make a very solid late round pick but with his weakness in space he will have a hard time on special teams.
