Rolando McClain, LB - Alabama

Pick made by peytonsthebest:

Resisting the knee-jerk reaction of picking [QB Tim] Tebow, I decided to go with an actual team need as well as the BPA. The Jags need to strengthen their defense. McClain is a great player as well as a great leader, something I believe is lacking for Jacksonville. His Pro Day 40 time was 4.69, which is fast for a guy who is 6'4" and 248lbs. Can he cover Dallas Clark twice a year? I certainly hope not..

McClain has the ability to both rush the QB and drop back into coverage. He recorded 105 tackles including 14.5 for loss. He also racked up 4 sacks, 14 QB hurries, 2 interceptions and a forced fumble. (Source Wikipedia)

How will he impact the 2010 Jaguars?

This 1st team 2009 All-American who was awarded both the 2009 Lambert Award (best collegiate linebacker) and the 2009 Dick Butkus Award should make an immediate impact as both a player and a much needed leader for Jacksonville's defense.

A special thanks to members of Big Cat Country who pointed me in the right direction

If McClain is taken #10 by the Jaguars, it would be the first LB taken in the first round by the Jaguars since 1996, when they drafted Kevin Hardy #2 overall. He will also be only the 2nd player from Alabama drafted in the first round since 2001 (Andre Smith).
