2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kyle McCarthy, SS, Notre Dame

Redshirted in 2005, McCarthy played in thirteen games in 2006 registering nine tackles. He doubled that total (20) the following season, also getting his first career interception that year. He had a breakthrough junior campaign with 110 tackles, one Pass Broken Up and 2 INTs. With good height and the frame to get bigger, McCarthy is aggressive against the run(Has the size to go one-on-one against taller receivers). He is also smooth and has good quickness. He is intelligent and has adequate range in zone coverage. However, McCarthy lacks ideal overall strength, especially in his lower body. He lacks explosiveness and a second gear -- he has suspect speed (4.61). McCarthy does not change directions well as his hip motion is somewhat awkward. He will have trouble against smaller and quicker receivers, so he must improve recognition skills. He is a willing run supporter, but tend to over-pursue. But, he usually takes good pursue angles and is a powerful tackler once it hit the ball carrier. Although his effort seems inconsistent. McCarthy must add bulk and get stronger. He is aggressive and productive, but not a playmaker. He has to develop a better play diagnostic skill. His coverage ability is decent at best, which means he will play zone only in the NFL. McCarthy is a risk and reward prospect who should be off the board by the early part of Day two.
