NFL Draft 2010 – Round 1 #3 – Tampa Bay- DT Gerald McCoy writes- McCoy has an excellent combination of size, strength and athleticism for an interior lineman in a 4-3 scheme. He doesn’t have the bulk to fit as a two gap nose tackle at the next level, but is Oklahoma’s most active defender. McCoy possesses outstanding initial quickness to penetrate the line of scrimmage and disrupt the running game as well as pressure the quarterback. He has strong quick hands to control blockers but can improve his consistency in this area. McCoy has the natural strength necessary to hold the point, but is best when stunting. McCoy is one of the top defensive linemen in this year’s draft and is likely to be a high pick that will impact a club in his rookie season.
