2018

2017

After playing his freshman season at Contra Costa College, McKinley sorted out his grades and transferred to UCLA, where he showed promise as a sophomore and became a regular contributor as an upperclassman. In his senior season, he finished the year with 10 sacks and 18 tackles for loss. He was eventually selected by the Falcons, who moved up in the draft to take him with the 26th pick in the 2017 draft. However, the Falcons may ease him into the system out of the gate, as he's recovering from shoulder surgery he underwent in early March. The 4-to-6 month recovery timetable means he may not be back to full contact by the start of training camp. He certainly figures to work into the defensive end rotation in his first season, but he may not have a starting role when Week 1 rolls around. Even in a limited role, he should be able to find the quarterback a few times if defenses shift their attention to linebacker Vic Beasley, who led the league in sacks last season and will line up opposite McKinley when the rook is on the field.
