McGovern is a quality footballer. During his years at Penn State, he played center and guard and can cause problems for defenses at both positions. Great functional athleticism and strength make him a handful for opponents. He plays with a great foundation and a solid anchor. Moving players around to suit his needs comes second nature to him. A great extension of his hands allows him to be in control of his opposite number.


Hand timing can be a problem when he doesn’t get it right. He can be pushed around when hands don’t work properly. Has a problem with learning too far forward at times and not setting himself again. Can spin blockers of too early and get caught out around the outside.

Needs to work on his pass sets. Can get too narrow-minded and fail to read the change of plays around him.

Overall Review:

McGovern is a talent. He isn’t a plug and play NFL starter at the moment, but he will be in good time. Expect him to go in the 3rd or fourth round of the draft. He will cause headaches for NFL defenses for years to come.
