2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Pernell McPhee, DE, Mississippi State

McPhee spent two years at junior college (Itawamba, MS) and positively dominated. He was an All-American both seasons and had 13.5 sacks as a sophomore. McPhee transferred to MSU for his junior season and led the team with 12 tackles for loss and five sacks. Drawing more attention from offenses as a senior, the defensive end has struggled through seven games. McPhee has just 12 tackles (five for loss) and no sacks. He at least leads the team with six quarterback hurries. McPhee has good size at 6'4' and 285 pounds. While he stars at end, he can play either outside or inside at the next level. He has decent speed and has been clocked as fast as 4.65 in the 40-yard dash, but that needs to be improved if he wants to be a starter in the NFL. Furthermore, McPhee's production--at least in 2010--is a concern. McPhee was on first-round radar screens prior to this season, and he definitely has the talent to return to such a status. However, he must finish the season much stronger than he started it before showing his stuff at the combine next spring. For now, McPhee looks like a possible third-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.
