5. Mike McGlinchley
While Mike McGlinchley has had some issues at camp, that’s only natural considering even the lowliest camp body he faces has more ability than the average college defender he’s had to deal with.
When McGlinchey was put into preseason action, however, he was fine.
He wasn’t tossing anyone around, but he was solid. He filled the gaps. He got his man on most snaps.
Most importantly, he wasn’t beaten.
For a rookie lineman, that’s all you need. Just keep the pressure off the offense.
Now, if only San Francisco’s interior blocking was as acceptable.
