Oakland Raiders

Name  Matt McCants
Born  8/18/1989
Height  6-5
Weight  297
College  UAB
First Team All-Conference USA selection in both 2010 and 2011...Four-year starter at tackle during his tenure at UAB, although he sat out the 2008 season for academic reasons...Big frame projects nicely to tackle at the next level, but will need to bulk up to go toe-to-toe with NFL defensive linemen...Excels at pass protection, having rarely allowed a sack in college...Below average strength for a guy his size...Athletic when moving in space, but not very technically sound...Could be a long-term project as a late-round pick based onpotential.
