I was on of them when I saw him fall in the draft. Questions surrounding his heart to play was a big issue also.

The Vikings: McCauley released


The Vikings have released former third-round pick Marcus McCauley.
McCauley was in a battle for one of the final roster spots, but his inability to be an asset on special teams likely was his undoing. He was battling with Karl Paymah and Benny Sapp.
McCauley, though, will get picked up, perhaps by the Detroit Lions. While he hasn't excelled for the Vikings, he's flashed enough potential that he won't be available for long.

The Lions: sign Chuck Darby, release Marcus McCauley

ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions signed veteran defensive tackle Chuck Darby on Tuesday, perhaps an indication that rookie Sammie Hill is a little banged up.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz wasn't asked about Hill's status at Monday's news conference, but he wouldn't have revealed much information anyway.
Hill, Detroit's rookie fourth-round draft pick, started the first three games.

Darby was released by the Lions in training camp. To make room for him, the Lions released cornerback Marcus McCauley.

Bucs released CB Marcus McCauley.

Bucs released CB Marcus McCauley. He was dumped in favor of Mike Mickens, who the Bucs signed off the Cowboys’ practice squad. McCauley has serious talent, but has never been able to put it together in four in stints with four different NFL clubs

Marcus McCauley CB 6' 1 203 Fresno St. 4.48

By: Robert Davis

McCauley was a reserve as a freshman, but moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and hasn’t slowed down since. As a sophomore, he picked off three passes to go with 31 tackles, three for loss, and a sack. As a junior, he had 45 tackles, two for loss, and an interception. McCauley finished his career with 55 tackles, three of them coming for loss this season.

There isn’t much more you can ask for physically out of a corner.

McCauley has it all. He has very good size, and matches up very well with bigger wideouts. His combination of height and jumping ability allow him to make plays on the ball with receivers a few inches taller. He doesn’t give up anything to the smaller receivers either. McCauley has the speed to keep up with any receiver well down the field.. He has a chance to be an all around standout cornerback.

McCauley has all the physical gifts, he just needs to play up to them on a more consistent level. He relies on his talent too much, and is too aggressive trying to make the big play.
Marcus McCauley played with second rounder Richard Marshall as a junior, and he is more talented. He did not have the year expected of him, but his combination of talent will get him drafted very high.

Weaknesses

Not a real killer when tackling. Lacks a bit of polish in pass defense. Needs to be coached up. Can guess wrong and take poor angles. Content to let others do the work if the ball is going the other way. Had an average senior year, and never reached anywhere near the kind of game-to-game consistency his coaches and fans were hoping for.
Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State

They seem to have him pegged out of the box in the draft.

Re: Saints Sign CB Marcus McCauley

I looked up this guys stats(none) and I heard Williams and Peyton talk about him and they speak highly. I don't know if they are just saying that to get them thru the season until porter and greer is happy. I hope this is another one of those Moore, Colston,Thomas pickups

He's hear for ST's help. Greg Williams eluded to that fact in an interview. He'll get his time and coaching with Greg Williams I am sure to see if he can be coached up to play... but will see. Also curious to note that CM could be back at the drop of a hat.
