Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

McCoy was one of several Aggies whose quality of play elevated in 2018 under new head coach Jimbo Fisher, helping him earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl and Combine. Once there, McCoy's own athleticism took center stage, helping the former three-star recruit stand out amid other, more nationally recognized blockers.

McCoy may not have earned high marks from recruiters out of high school but he showed steady improvement for the Aggies, starting the final 36 games of his career after redshirting his first season on campus.

SEC coaches and media failed to recognize McCoy during his college career but don't expect that to matter to scouts, especially those looking for blockers athletic enough to handle a zone blocking scheme. McCoy's power-packed frame and quickness to the second level raised eyebrows at the Senior Bowl and he followed that up with a terrific workout in Indianapolis, ranking as one of the year's winners of the postseason build-up to the 2019 NFL Draft.

ANALYSIS

McCoy is a prototypically-built interior lineman with long arms (33") and a thick lower half, as well as good knee bend, leaving him well-suited to winning the leverage battle. He generates movement at the point of attack with his raw power and turned heads at the Senior Bowl and Combine with his athleticism - which was not always exploited in A&M's power-based scheme. Three-year starter. Team captain. Some starting experience at OG.

McCoy is not always as agile on the field as his impressive 40-yard dash at the Combine might indicate, losing track of assignments at the second level. He appeared to play to the level of competition, at times, raising questions about his competitiveness and consistency.

His performance in Mobile was important as some felt he was aided by A&M's skill-position athletes (including dual-threat QBs), who rarely needed blocks held for long.

Projection: Second Round
