RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Robert McClain.
Amid multiple injuries to the Panthers' secondary, McClain signed with the team with three regular season games remaining last year, yet did well enough to earn himself a starting gig during Carolina's Super Bowl run. Despite that success -- not to mention Josh Norman's departure this offseason -- McClain faces considerable competition for playing time going into this year, as the Panthers spent three draft picks on cornerbacks. As a result, his performance during the preseason should help shape his role going forward.
McClain, who recorded 60 tackles and two picks with the Falcons in 2014, was unable to make the Patriots' 53-man roster.
McClain will hold down the slot corner for the Falcons after the team decided to resign him this offseason. Robert Alford and Desmond Trufant will man the outside cornerback positions, but McClain should see plenty of work in the slot. He tallied 65 tackles and two forced fumbles in 2013, and should return to those marks this season.
McClain racked up 61 tackles in 2012, but the Falcons chose cornerbacks in both the first and second rounds in the 2013 draft, meaning McClain may find it difficult to get on the field. He'll still see work in some packages, but if Desmond Trufant earns the starting cornerback role aside Asante Samuel, which is expected, McClain will struggle to match his 2012 production.
Will provide depth at cornerback if he makes the active roster.
Will back up Chris Gamble at cornerback, which should mean that he'll get on the field, thanks to Gamble's injury history.
2010 seventh round pick likely destined for the practice squad.
