Michigan linebacker Mike McCray: Had 79 tackles last season, including 11 for loss and 4.5 sacks. Has had injury issues but is a big, physical inside linebacker at 243 pounds.

Pauline: “He’s a tough, smart two-down linebacker. I thought he would be drafted the last day. Getting him after the draft is good value.”

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein had thought McCray would be drafted in the fifth or sixth rounds. “McCray is a big, physical inside linebacker who plays with most of the characteristics evaluators want from an inside linebacker, but his limited range could hurt his draft stock. McCray could be a consideration for 3-4 teams looking to pair a big body next to an athlete at inside linebacker, but he'll need to come off the field on passing downs. If healthy, McCray could become a backup linebacker with a chance to work himself into starting contention down the road.” (The Dolphins play a 4-3, of course.)

Zierlein quotes an NFL director of scouting as saying this about McCray: "He was a 'dude' coming out of high school, but injuries have slowed him down. He has most of what you want in a linebacker but he just can't run well."

Pro Football Focus: “Excellent run-defense grades over the past two seasons for Michigan, but his coverage fell off in 2017 and he had some very ugly games on his tape.”
