McClure is 31. The only set position on the line according to the coaches is McClure. Obviously this ranking weighs heavily on age and potential. At year 10 there is no potential to consider.

The only thing this ranking weighs heavily on is idiotic journalism... who ranks NFL players on a 1 to 10 scale anyways... STUPIDDDDD website

Wow, McClure rated a 4? Realistically he'd rate a 6 based on that list...

New Era Scouting has some interesting information regarding NFL draft prospects leading up to draft time, but overall I found their content lacking.

Seemed to be more of a lay-person doing the writing of most of their articles rather than professional writers or scouts.  I'd give little credence to any rankings of this nature they came up with.

I'm NOT a McClure guy, but there is NO WAY he's the 50th best OC in the NFL.  I'd say in the 25 - 35 range somewhere, but not that far down the list.
