2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Gerald McCoy

  • Impressive size
  • Cut athlete with good muscle definition
  • Elite-level athleticism
  • Explosive off snap
  • Impressive instincts
  • Shows ability to disengage quickly
  • Great lateral agility
  • Grades out highly with chase tackles
  • Good vision; finds ballcarrier
  • Strong; active hands
  • Penetrates well; knows how to get under a lineman
  • Displays good pad level
  • Nice speed; plays fast
  • Wide pass rush repertoire
  • Shows good balance and coordination; flexible athlete
  • Quick hips
  • Adequate upper body strength
  • Very good motor and stamina
  • Durable
  • Great intangibles and work ethic
  • Prototype three-technique

  • Lacks some bulk to be a two-gap defensive tackle
  • Not a fit for every scheme
  • Not an elite run defender
  • Struggles against massive offensive linemen against run
  • Not overly powerful

    Summary: McCoy is an amazing prospect and simply great at what he is - a three technique. He isn't going to be Vince Wilfork, and 3-4 teams won't target him. He will fit most 4-3 schemes looking for an elite pass rusher and someone who can disrupt opponents' backfields. He has elite intangibles and should be a definite top-10 pick. McCoy is my No. 1 defensive tackle for the 2010 NFL Draft.

    Player Comparison: Kevin Williams. Williams is one of the elite defensive tackles in the NFL with his athleticism, instincts and pass-rush ability.
