Anybody know about this guy?
Found a little draft info on him if anyone is interested.
Hopefully everyone can view that seeing as I don't have a subscription and can see it all.
Played in the SEC. Was ranked #9 DE in the 06 draft, going by Scott's ranking. He ranked him ahead of Dumervil, Chris Gocong, Frostee Rucker, etc.
Was taken in the 7th round, Panthers fans thought they had a steal back when they drafted him.
I had McClover as the no.1 FA DE available.
He is a very good pass rusher (LOTS OF SPEED) & should make a good bookend for MW. He is not an every down DE. He got caught up in a numbers game in Carolina.
Lets sign Keith & we will have had a good off season.
My Panther buddy barely knew much about him. Says he is not horrible, but just a guy.
If he's been with the Panthers, he probably has had some good coaching.
But you never know. So much of the NFL is fit and opportunity.
Whoever this guy is, he can't be that great if he didn't make their team.
Whoever this guy is ..... even if he was stocking grocery shelves last week .... has to be an upgrade over Weaver.
Well, there is that. LOL
From the chron link:
I was thinking most of these guys would be on the PS, suprised that Moffitt is not however.
Here are a couple of links about McClover. It seems he has been an underachiever who has disappointed a team that is weak on the defensive line.

All I know is that Smithiak is excellent at these types of pickups.
They must see something in him to be bringing him in now when we can only carry 53 players.
more expression of need rather than a complete football player who is any better than those not already added back to the practice squad. he does have the right size & measureables lets hope he realizes this opportunity & make the most of it, but I just can't see him beating out Bulman or even Nading. I beleive he is a practice squad player who has run our of eligibility & now has to stick on someones active roster.
Dugged up his old scouting report from NFLDC:
I'm watching the Steeler-Panther game. McGlover showed some pretty good explosiveness dropping the RB behind the line. Two plays later he got to Mendenhall behind the line.
He's not an every-down stud, but might do in the DL rotation
Decent pickup because of the potential he has, but at the same time this brings our number of DEs on the roster at 6 (7 including the practice squad). Other than Mario, I'm still worried we don't have a capable starter in the bunch.
I thought we were only carrying around 4........are you sure that you are not including DTs?
