Rolando McClain = Channing Crowder?


Alright fellow Phinsiders, I know I'm probably going to take a verbal beating for what I'm about to say, but here goes.

I've been hearing a lot of people at this site saying if Rolando McClain is available at 12 the Dolphins should take him. Living in the Midwest I don't usually watch a lot of SEC games, but I figure since Alabama had such a good defense and Rolando McClain is pretty much the head of that unit that he is obviously a beast. So I decided to check out some videos of him. As ole Lee Corso would say "not so fast my friend". It seemed to me that he plays a lot like our very own Channing Crowder. Very good against the run. Other than that he kind of disappears. No game changing plays, not good in coverage, gets blocked easily especially when blitzing, and doesn't shed blocks well. Here are a couple videos I just watched (video 1 and video 2) let me know what you think.
