A quick look at Panthers CB Robert McClain:

Height: 5-9.

Weight: 195.

College: Connecticut.

NFL experience: Fifth year.

The scoop: McClain is kind of the forgotten man in the Panthers’ secondary, overshadowed by the departures of Josh Norman, Charles Tillman and Roman Harper and the arrivals of the three rookie cornerbacks. McClain started all three postseason games, including Super Bowl 50, after Tillman tore his ACL. With his small stature, McClain doesn’t fit the prototype of a Sean McDermott corner. But with his experience at corner and as a punt returner, McClain -- a seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2010 -- has a shot of sticking.
