  • Leodis McKelvin

    Who has actually seen this guy play?

    Is he just the hot small school prospect that people like to hype up or does he have legit NFL talent?

    Who does he compare to?

    What are his strengths and weaknesses?

    Theres a scouting report about him. Scott did it.

      I've really had the same questions. I watched a few Troy games the past two years but honestly didn't look out for anyone so its hard to remember how Mckelvin looked.

        For me, I like to see a more domination stats wise from players coming from small schools. 4 INTs in his entire career? You can stumble across that as a marginal player lining up at CB. I have a feeling that his return skills have boosted up his stock to a level it shouldn't be at, grading from purely a defensive cornerback view. 22 Passes Defensed and 4 INTs in 48 games played just does not shout "playmaker" to me. That said, it's impossible to grade a player based off stats, especially at the CB position. So that's why I ask. Is there anyone here who has followed his career closely who can share their opinion?

        I hate jumping on the bandwagon on guys like these because usually it's guys like Mel Kiper who bring up names like these and overhype them just to show the world that "he said it first"... sorta deal.

        McKelvin... Legit or Fraud?

        Comparisons anyone?

          You have to realize the Sun Belt is a predominantly running conference for the most part. But I agree I would have liked to see more production from him in his career to warrant being a late 1st round/early 2nd round guy

            He possibly is the best corner or defensive players in the conference. I dont think quarterbacks wanted to test him.

              yeah but he didn't really have the numbers early in his career to warrant being avoided either.

                Why not? Not like he proved to be some sort of interception machine. I don't buy that.

                  I've only seen him a couple times (that said, I'm a big Sun Belt fan, which some older posters may know, names like The Tree, Mr. Guillory, and Calvin "I am stupid" Dawson".) From what I've seen, he's willing to stick his nose in there, which is always a plus. His instincts are good. If I had to label a comp, I'd go with either Lito Sheppard or Dunta Robinson in a positive scenario (obviously, negative scenario is a bust). I think people want to see how he does at the Senior Bowl to see how his speed and instincts translate, although a lot of people are sold.

                    Yeah you were the first person to hype up Drouzen Quillen. Too bad that didn't really work out too well

                      Ha I know. He did get drafted though.

                      There was that Wyoming receiver that I really liked. Can't remember his name right now. Bouknight?

                      I've always fully admitted that I have my biases and hit or miss on guys. It's a shame Guillory has a medical condition (heart?). I thought a couple years of production in the CFL and someone might've given him a look, a la Rashad Jeanty.

                      I like the Sun Belt. How can you not? Dunno, just a soft spot for the Sun Belt with me.

                        I've always liked the Sun Belt too. Brandon Cox was a big time prospect for me but he didn't seem to catch on in the pros

                          I think it's cuz I'm a Southern country boy at heart. Did spend a couple years down in Louisiana and rural Virginia.

                          Okay, this is probably drifting a bit. Hmm ... a comment on Leodis ... uh ... cool name. I wonder the origins of Leodis.

                            it is close to Leonidis... perhaps a relative of the king? if so, he's got bloodthirsty killer instincts in his blood. which could be good, unless you're a team mate who angers him..

                              I think Leodis is Scottish ... not sure if it descends from Leonidas, although I have my doubts on that one. Ah, oh well ... not really the biggest deal for me.
