"McGlinchey's a poor athlete but understands technique and has the prototype OL mindset. But his slow feet, lack of pop, and inconsistent leverage could make him a liability as a pro."

Big, long guy with decent technique and the ideal mentality of an offensive lineman. At home doing the dirty work. Solid awareness and walls off effectively. Flashes ability to finish blocks when he's locked on. Experienced on the left and right side. Coordinated mover who can get at the 2nd level and find his target.
Lacks foot quickness and can be a liability as a pass protector. Struggles to recover if he makes a false step. Lower body strong but lacks a powerful punch. Doesn't sustain at the los. Often slow gaining leverage and fails to get a push. Routinely jumps the snap to try and set asap.
In this clip vs likely UDFA DE Trent Harris, McGlinchey struggles to generate movement, then on the next snap gets tossed aside.
On the right side here, McGlinchey struggles to recover inside and drive his man down the line.
Also on the right side in this clip, he loses balance on the rush by DE Kevin Dodd and gets embaressed.
McGlinchey's a poor athlete despite being a former TE but understands technique and has that prototype OL personality. But his slow feet, lack of pop, and inconsistent leverage could make him a liability as a pro. If he learns all the tricks and subtleties he could be a Rick Wagner type OT but as a top of the draft 1st round guy he's overrated.
