Chris McCoy
Round 7, Pick 212
Position: OLB
Class: 5Sr
Conference: Sun Belt
HT: 6-3
WT: 245
40 Time: 4.78
Biography: All-Conference selection as a senior and named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year after totals of 64/20/7. Junior numbers included 25/5/3.

Positives: Athletic college defensive end finally hitting his stride. Plays with good balance, fires off the snap, and tough to knock off his feet. Shows terrific quickness in his overall game, fierce moving up the field and effectively diagnoses the action. Plays with good lean, immediately alters his angle of attack and makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt and works hard to make plays.

Negatives: Possesses more of a short area burst of speed, which he struggles to sustain. Slowed by blocks or handled by tight ends.

Analysis: McCoy comes off a tremendous senior season and went from draft afterthought to potential late round pick. He now projects to outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment and is a solid developmental prospect.

Projection: 6th
