Full Name: DeMarco McNeil School Auburn
Ht: 6-1 Wt 305 40: 4.98 Number 92
2002: Finished the season with 39 tackles including eight tackles for loss
(-33). Had off-season surgery on right knee and held out of spring drills while
2001: Finished the season with 33 tackles including four tackles for
loss. Tied for second on the team with 13 quarterback hurries.
2000: Freshman All-America selection and selected to the All-SEC Freshman
teams. Started all 13 games at left defensive tackle, led the team with 13
tackles for loss, five sacks and was second with 67 tackles.
The Good: Explosive lineman that has been a productive college defender
since he was a freshman. Quick off the snap with a nice first step, plays low
with leverage and commands double teams by opponents. Fights with his hands
displaying good technique and rarely off his feet. Aware and works to get
involved in the action yet smart and immediately locates the ball.
The Bad: Moves to the flanks but making plays laterally it is not a
strong suit. Lacks the quick change of direction and sustained speed. Not a
space eater in the middle and lacks the dominant lower body.
The Skinny: We have always liked McNeil since watching him as a red-shirt
freshman back in 2000. A quality defensive tackle, the knee injury suffered in
2001 seemed to take the edge off his game but the early returns from this season
have been good. A lot like Tampa Bay lineman Anthony McFarland in size and
