Alabama expert Kirk McNair weighed in on McCall's ability to Scout.com's Bear Report

McCall has good football smarts and is a dedicated worker in the weight room and on the field. He was versatile at Alabama, playing tight end and H-back. He's an excellent blocker and proved to be very durable. He didn't get a lot of receiving opportunities, with just 24 catches in four years and no more than eight in any one season. But he is a coach's dream, a hard worker who gets the most from his ability and a very good person. He suited up for 51 games at Alabama, the second most in school history. And there have been some good players in Tuscaloosa.
