Overview:

McQuay had a great career at USC, with 123 tackles, 6.5 for loss, 5 interceptions, and 16 pass breakups. He has good size, is a good cover safety, a hard hitting safety, a playmaker in the secondary, and a disruptive defender. The only issue I see is he does not have elite safety speed, but that does not hamper his game. With that being said, McQuay should be an day 3 pick, most likely in the 5th-6th round range when it is all said and done.
