Why Stacy McGee is Washington’s breakout player this season

This offseason Washington picked up Stacy McGee from the Raiders. Not many people probably noticed because he was brought in to play on the interior of the line as a nose tackle/defensive tackle in a 3-4 defense. Aside from a few notable exceptions, interior 3-4 defensive linemen just don’t normally generate big headlines or a lot of public interest because their job is usually to force two people to block them and let a linebacker make the play. And if you look at McGee’s stats, they aren’t necessarily that impressive either.

But fuck those stats, that dude’s film is baller.

He’s a big guy at 6’3 and over 340 pounds, but my goodness he is light on his feet. He moves very well and has a ton of short-area quickness which allows him to easily side step offensive linemen who are expecting him to just run down the middle of them every play.
