Strengths
McCaffery is a diverse talent that projects as something of a tweener in the NFL. He has great fundamentals, athleticism, and intelligence, and will offer a keen offensive coordinator a lot of unique options to exploit.
Weaknesses
Probably isn't an every down runner. Might not have the elite athleticism needed to excel as a pro.
Overall Analysis
McCaffery will be an immediate starter as a return specialist, and probably a game changer there, as well as earning time as a third down back from day one. He is a capable runner but will probably not be able to be a feature back for more than a week or two.
