Strong Points

Very strong for his size. Has very good quickness and speed. Willing pass blocker with adequate results. Creative runner who is quick to the hole and has excellent vision and instincts. He is patient and does a good job setting up and following his blocks. Runs low and gets yardage after contact. Good receiver.

Weak Points

Lacks ideal height. Had shoulder surgery shortly after the Combine for a torn labrum. While he is very willing in pass pro, he needs work on technique. Not a real home-run threat, despite timed speed. Played in a weak conference.

The Way We See It

McNichols doesn't have the size scouts look for but he plays bigger than he measures. A tough and competitive back with strength and power. He can hit the hole quickly and find the seam. Has creativity and a burst. He is a good receiver and knows how to get open. As a blocker, he will face up and can anchor but lacks some technique. His shoulder surgery could drop him a little but he will still be a good rotational back who can be productive with 15 touches a game.
