McKinstry is known for his excellent zone coverage awareness, utilizing his length effectively to disrupt passes. He's skilled in bump and run, mirroring receivers with quick footwork and fluid hips. His ball skills are particularly notable when facing the quarterback, and he's physical at the top of routes. McKinstry's lack of panic when out of position and his solid tackling ability in the open field make him a reliable defensive back.
