Pos: 
Nice-sized guard who stands out as a run blocker and has the versatility to move to center. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and quickly gets into blocks. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and shows strength at the point. Squares into opponents easily to turn them from the action and always looks for someone to hit. Keeps his head on a swivel and works well with linemates. Fires out to the second level, moves relatively well in a straight line and annihilates opponents at the point of attack.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork in space and does not show the ability to slide laterally. Struggles to adjust.
Analysis: 
McGovern has the size and strength to be a starting guard at the next level and will succeed in a system that asks him to play straight ahead rather than laterally.
