McKinney goes to Texans | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Texans traded up in Round 2 to draft LB Benardrick McKinney, who brings terrific size and tested great at the Scouting Combine. The problem -- at least as far as we're concerned -- is that McKinney doesn't look like that guy on tape. He's slow to the ball and doesn't appear very instinctive. Perhaps the Texas A&M scheme limited, but we're not excited about McKinney's IDP prospects. Initially, he also might need to fight Brian Cushing for 3-down duties. Don't expect McKinney to land very high in our dynasty rookie rankings.
