That's the point I'm making though - the interior runs when McLendon was playing were held to just over 2 YPC. McLendon may not be a prototypical NT, but he's getting the job done.
Inside zone schemes involve a momentary double team block on interior linemen, like the NT, then one of the linemen slides off and goes second level to block the LB. A dominant NT normally can't be left alone on such a combination block.

McLendon, Woods, Fangopu all allow the opposing linemen to get combo blocks on our ILB . You may point to stats to say McLendon is doing a job, but what I see on tape shows it isn't the job we need done.
