Expert Breakdown: “McGovern could be a late-round steal for someone. While he does have a future on the interior, McGovern has shown he can play both tackle spots in a pinch, which will only increase his value in the NFL. He has the size and strength that should translate well in the NFL power game on the inside.” - NFLDraftScout.com’s Jamie Newberg wrote in his scouting report.
McGovern Says: “I think (my versatility is) a huge benefit for me going into the draft. They only travel seven (offensive linemen) so they need a guy that can snap, play guard and tackle and I feel like I can do all three. So I think it helps me a lot.”
