Overview:

McKenzie finished his career at Tennessee, where he played in 31 career games, had 72 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 3.0 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. He has great size, he has good speed for his size, and is a solid tackler. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is also a very relentless defender, and he gets a good push on the offensive line. He is also a tough nosed player, a defensive play maker, he commands double teams, and he is very tough, and physical. He also uses his power to get through the offensive line in pursuit of the ball carrier, and he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage. On the other hand, he is not known as a sack guy, and he had a pectoral injury in 2016. With that said, I see McKenzie being a day 3 pick.
