Builds up speed as he goes and possesses good body control and short-area quickness when asked to separate. Displays the ability to quickly snap off routes, locate the football and uses his strong hands to pluck the throw off his frame. Is a really sure-handed option who maintains concentration in traffic, exhibits good body control and consistently is able to come down with the tough grab. Looks much more comfortable when split out, gets into his routes much quicker and possesses the type of speed to threaten the seam down the field. Does a nice job looking off defenders when trying to set up his routes, sticking his foot in the ground and accelerating toward daylight vertically.
Impression: He’s a natural pass catcher who can create some mismatches for you in the pass game, but limits himself because of his size and inability to hold up as a blocker. More of a late round, H-back type option who will be able to win for you vs. man-coverage, but needs to be split out."
The Nebraska passing game is quite limited this season and McNeill's numbers have suffered because of it. He has only caught six passes, but those six passes have been big plays resulting in a total of 130 yards and a trip to the end zone. Yet, McNeill is still in there blocking and that is what the Cornhuskers need with quarterback Taylor Martinez running all over the place.
McNeill's lack of flashiness (even by tight end standards) will keep him off the radar for now. Even his 6-4 frame is undersized for a red zone target in the NFL, but he keeps doing what his team needs him to do and doing it well. That will not translate into hearing his name called during the first couple of rounds of the draft, but some team will be getting a good value in the fourth or fifth round."
Looks like a mid Rounder to me, because of his Offensive Prowess.
