NFL Draft chat with UCLA safety/linebacker Stan McKay.

Stan is an exceptional athlete who played both linebacker and safety for UCLA but with the speed and cover skills of a defensive back he was mostly used as a hard hitting safety and special teams standout during his college career. He did fill in admirably when needed at linebacker. He was named Special Teams Senior of the Year for the Bruins. Stan’s physicality and leadership skills will be a big asset for success in his professional football career.
