SUMMARY: Franklin “Mac” McCain III played football growing up in Greensboro, but didn’t take it seriously until he returned to the sport as a junior at Dudley High. He combined for 24 passes defended over his final two seasons while also lettering in basketball and track (10.90 100-meters). McCain stayed close to home and signed with FCS North Carolina A&T and posted 30 passes defended, 374 interception return yards and four interception return touchdowns over his 29 starts (missed parts of the 2018 and 2019 seasons due to a knee injury). His grandfather (Franklin) was an influential figure in the fight for civil rights. McCain looked like he was playing at a different speed at the FCS level, covering with quick feet and twitchy hips. He has thrived with raw instincts, but needs to mature his reads/keys. Overall, McCain is a work-in-progress with his route anticipation and run support, but he has the speed, reactive quickness and ball skills that jump off the screen.
GRADE: Priority Free Agent
Turns out Landon Rice was a #PumpFake. Not signed.I know a few things about this group:
Landon Rice TE - Jacksonville St. - Was considered one of the best blocking TEs in the draft (his dad is an oline coach) - he was a 4 star recruit to Auburn, but was thrown out of Auburn over a r*pe accusation which had no criminal repercussions, but ran afoul of thestudent discipline group which is independent of the athletic department. Along with Seth Williams - he appears to be a guy who might help out at TE, but may also improve special team downfield blocking in the return game.
Andre Mintz - Edge - runs a 4.57 forty an appears to be a legitimate prospect to develop.
Drew Himmelman - OT - is either 6'10" or 6'9" - seems to have good pass protection skills, but at this height needs to remember to somehow get his pad level down in the run game.
Curtis Robinson - ILB stanford - I wouldn't have drafted or signed this guy from what I saw in his play. He could be developed - as he is quick enough to cover people - he just got run over like he was one of the paper hoops teams rush through during stadium introductions.
