McCune's stats

Did anyone notice McCune's stats in this (Army Shapes McCune) WP article? Bench presses 535lbs?!?!? My buddy mentioned this to me the other day - that's 10 45lb plates. That's obscene.

Plus 4 10lb plates. Even more obscene.

The guy did something like 33 reps of 225lbs at the combine. Those are lineman reps right there. That guy's got some power packed onto that six feet tall frame.

And he runs the 40 in 4.41 seconds. Insane.

Re: McCune's stats

No doubt physically the guy is very impressive, let's hope his mental game is up to par as well.

Re: McCune's stats

I say put him at DE and see what he can do. I'm not sure if he is mentally prepared enough to handle being MLB.

Re: McCune's stats

I hope he's able to learn our defense quickly and start as our MLB. I like him as a starter than others. Our Linebackers were our strength last year and need someone to fill Pierce's role.

Re: McCune's stats

I also really admire the fact that he's served his country. The guy has charater, is physically killer and if he's given the right mentoring could be our best pickup for quite some time.

I don't see him holding out/crashing motorcycles/DUI, etc.

Truly a class act/Gibbs type player.

Hey SnC, I thought the big knock on him was the age thing?

my father was in the military for 22 years and i can tell you,,, 95% of it is mental toughness. not to mention all kinds of free classes. this guy should be the real thing being in that kind of shape to go along with his mental aspect of being in the army and actually going over seas.

Re: McCune's stats

the knock on him by all the experts of why he went in the 5th round was his age at 26. he is in his prime now and thats why i would like him to play very soon.

Robert McCune
ILB | (6'0", 245, 4.5) | LOUISVILLE

Scouts Grade: 59

Flags: (A: AGE) Player may be older or younger than usual Selected by: Washington Redskins
Round: 5
Pick (Overall): 18(154) View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.
Strengths: Has an exceptional combination of size, strength and straight-line speed. Is powerful at the POA and shows the ability to take on blocks in the phone booth if he plays with better technique. Has great range and closing burst versus the run. Is an explosive tackler that closes quickly and shows very good short area power. Fills hard versus the run. Has great speed when he gets a clear lane to the quarterback as a blitzer. Also has adequate range in zone coverage and the speed to run with most backs downfield.

Weaknesses: Is still not as fundamentally sound as he needs to be. He plays too high at times and needs to show better leverage and consistency when it comes to taking on blocks in the phone booth. He must also learn to use his hands better to shed. At times he will take too long to diagnose a play. He gets away with it at the C-USA level because of his speed but he needs to make quicker reads and react faster. Too many arm tackles. Needs to do a better job of breaking down and wrapping up. He has elite speed but his hips are a little bit stiff and he doesn't have great man-to-man cover skills. He has potential in zone coverage but he needs to take fewer false steps versus play-action. He does a good job of knocking passes down in his zone, but his ball skills are below average.

Overall: McCune redshirted in 2000 and saw action only as a backup from 2001-'02 before taking over as Louisville's fulltime starting middle linebacker as a junior in 2003, when he finished with 143 total tackles, five TFL and four sacks. He started all 12 games (ILB and OLB) as a senior in 2004 and led the team with 115 total tackles, including four for loss, two sacks and one interception. A member of the National Guard; spent six months in Kuwait and a full year in Korea. He will be a 26-year old rookie in the NFL. McCune was much improved as a senior and his upside is extremely intriguing because of his rare combination of size (6-0, 245), strength (33 reps of 225-pound bench press) and speed (4.50). However, McCune is a much more attractive prospect when watching him work out in shorts than he is when studying him in pads on film. He has great top-end speed for his size but he plays stiff and he has lots of limitations in terms of his range versus the run and in coverage, as a result. Furthermore, he still lacks ideal technique and recognition skills, which leads to inconsistent play. In our opinion, McCune is worth the gamble in the fourth-to-fifth round range of the upcoming draft but anywhere earlier than that would be a classic case of getting caught up in McCune as a "workout warrior", not a football player.

Re: McCune's stats

Personally, I love the guy already and can't wait to see him develope under Williams. He's a monster of an athelete and a guy with his character will work himself to the bone getting mentally prepared for every game. I don't think he'll be ready to start for us right away, but I'm hoping by mid- to late-season he'll be our #1 MLB.

I doubt he'll play this year, but if he comes along quick, I'd love to see him on the field!
