Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy
NFL Draft Scouting Report

Defensive Tackle

Oklahoma


College Position: Defensive Tackle
School: Oklahoma
Grade: Junior
Height: 6-4
Weight: 295
Birthdate: 02-25-1988
Draft Projection: Top 5
Overall Rank: 4
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Defensive Tackle (2)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1st round with the #3 pick.
Gerald McCoy is a one gap penetrator who is an ideal fit for the Bucs Tampa 2 scheme. He fills their top positional need by providing a disruptor in the middle of the defense who demands double teams. The combination of McCoy, 2nd rounder Brian Price and 2009 draftee Roy Miller gives the defensive interior a makeover which should improve both the run and pass defense. He also demonstrates good character and should be a leader on and off the field.

Strengths

  • Three year starter
  • Ideal body type for a 4-3 DT
  • Tremendous athleticism for a DT - will test well
  • Excellent pass rusher - quick first step and gets push up the middle
  • Good anticipation
  • Plays with good balance and is hard to knock off the ball
  • A one gap penetrator - Disrupts plays in the backfield
  • Uses hands well to separate from blockers
  • Good motor
  • Strong leader with good intangibles

Weaknesses

  • Not a space eating tackle. More effective shooting gaps
  • Adding a little upper body strength wouldn't hurt
  • Not a great fit for a 3-4 defense
  • Better pass rusher than run defender
  • Plays high at times
