Versatile team player was an option quarterback, running back, cornerback and kick returner at Georgia Southern, but will play running back at the next level ... Tested highly at the NFL Scouting Combine, including 32 reps with the 225-pound bench press - an incredible number for a running back. The Wall Street Journal's analysis of all player numbers concluded McKinnon performed the best at the Combine ... Strong, well-built frame with fluid running style, but not experienced in a traditional pro offense as Georgia Southern ran the triple option during his career ... As a junior in 2012, McKinnon rushed for1,817 yards, including 316 in an FCS playoff game.
