Overview:

McCalister has good speed, he easily gets around the tackle, and he uses a nice spin move to do so. He put up good sack numbers at Florida. He created havoc for offensive linemen, and is a dynamic pass rusher. On the other hand, he has had off the field issues, as he was suspended by the Florida football team, he is very undersized to play defensive end, which is where he played at Florida, and he only really played the equivalent of 2 full seasons at Florida. With that all said, I expect McCalister to be a day 3 pick, somewhere early in the 4th round.
