Nick: I can see that being a healthy training camp battle. Checking out a few plays from McClain last year, he seemed rather strong to clog up the middle. They’ll both play so it wouldn’t be a major issue which one starts. But as of right now, not seeing much of McClain, I can guess they’re similar in talent.
