I think McClain is how he's always been. He can play either position well. The thing with guys like him or Tolbert is that they're just not explosive enough to be a feature back.
Ronnie Brown as a backup should be just fine. He might even be fine carrying the full load. He's getting a lot of praise for how well he looks so far.
