Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
In any other year Gerald may well be the #1 defensive tackle on everyone’s draft board but faced with the option of Ndamukong Suh, most teams will have him as their #2 at the position. He’s a tall, powerful player who is strong at the point of attack and can defeat the double team. Looks like the sort of player who could play in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense.
Rico McCoy, WLB, Tennessee
In what looks to be a relatively weak linebacker class, Rico is certainly one of the standouts. His energy and quickness at the weak side position have drawn some comparisons to Derrick Brooks, which can only be a good thing. The biggest knock on him is his size but an NFL strength and conditioning programme could help him with that.
Anthony McCoy, TE, USC
USC’s Anthony is a solid tight end who is projected as a mid-round pick. He’s athletic, has good hands and is a willing enough blocker to suit most teams. Lacks a little in the smarts department and needs to bulk up a bit and hold his blocks a little longer.
Jamie McCoy, TE, Texas A&M
Jamie is another tight end who has been a part of the explosive Texas A&M offense. Has decent size for a guy at his position.
Chris McCoy, DE, Middle Tennessee State
The Sunbelt’s Defensive Player of the Year for 2009 Chris is a very athletic defensive end. He has a decent frame and would be able to bulk up if asked at the next level. Could also be the type to transition to a 3-4 outside linebacker. Needs to work on his coverage skills and prove he’s not just a one-trick pony.
Are any of these guys the Real McCoy? I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
