Overview

McCoy is a once in a lifetime college quarterback. He has done everything right while at Texas and has done a great job of representing the university on and off the field. Unfortunately his skills don’t translate to his being a lock to make it big at the next level. He has an adequate arm but can struggle when needing to throw a dart on the intermediate to deep outs and the ball will float on him at times when deep passes down the seam. He understands the game and does a good job of reading coverages and making good decisions before and after the snap. He is athletic and has done a wonderful job of hitting the weights to improve his physical stature.

Analysis

Strengths

McCoy is a natural leader with high character. Played with a lot of intelligence in Texas’ system which he mastered. Was extremely productive. Possesses a quick release. Displays great accuracy in the short passing game and puts the ball in a position to set up his receivers for run after the catch. Has the foot-speed to avoid the rush and buy extra time.

Weaknesses

McCoy lacks a cannon for an arm. Can fit the ball into spots on intermediate routes at times but will struggle with the deep ball. Release point is a little low. Needs to improve his accuracy on long passes down the field and toward the sideline.
