Terrell McClain is not a 1 tech

He is the smallest of all the DT's currently on our roster. He demands less of a double team than than lowly Hayden. I like the pick up of McClain. But as a rotational guy throughout the line. He is more of an under sized SDE. Or a less impressive 3 tech working on running downs. He does not have the size or power to demand a double team. He has nearly no push.

Refer here, Defensive Linemen, to see each player. Frank Kearse is our current best option for the starting 1 tech over Hayden. Otherwise, it is Nick Hayden unless we draft a 1 tech. The signing of Melton put the need at 1 tech higher than the need at 3 tech. So expect Nix to be a possibility at 16 now also.

I wrote this because I see a lot of references to McClain at 1 tech. I'm curious, How many readers think McClain has the size and strength needed to play 1 tech?
