UCLA DE proves himself in final year

Silver Star Nation

Considered to be a sleeper prior to his senior year, UCLA’s Takkarist McKinley proved to be a force of nature in 2016.

As a senior,  he received first-team All-Pac-12 honors, having racked up 18 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and six pass breakups.

Scouts believe the defensive end will get overdrafted and get taken in the first round, but will prove to a be a productive professional defensive player for whomever scoops him up.
