http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/thed...jr-rolando-mcclain-perfect-pick-for-dolphins/ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. has Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain at No. 8 on his latest big board unveiled Wednesday afternoon, but said on a conference call with the national media that he still has McClain slotted to Miami with the No. 12 selection.
“He’s a heckuva player,” Kiper said. “Worthy of being that high a choice. He’s always been regarded as an elite player - he has a lot of fire and intensity, sets the tone, has a Ray Lewis-type enthusiasm for the game. This is an inside linebacker who looks like an outside linebacker.”
