Round: 6
Pick (Overall): 16 (185)
Pick Analysis: Pete Carroll just selected his first USC Trojan in McCoy. He had a third-round grade from most NFL teams prior to off-field issues. The sixth round is excellent value for an athletic tight end, who can stretch the defense. Carroll needs to keep him in a structured environment to get the most out of him.


McCoy is a good looking tight end that does not quite play up to his numbers. He presents an excellent target and will go across the middle and catch the ball in traffic but lacks the explosive first step out of his breaks to separate from defenders on a consistent basis. He rarely beats the offensive line off the ball and looks almost casual on his release, which could end up being an issue at the next level. McCoy is not an easy take-down once the ball is in his hands, but is also not the most elusive runner in the open field.


Possesses good size. Has soft hands and good body control. Runs efficient routes and can separate against man coverage. Has enough speed to stretch the field. Solid blocker with good technique. Hard worker that fights for extra yards.


Lacks initial quickness and releases late, making him slow off the ball. Does not show adequate moves in the open field after the catch. Struggles to push people around in the running game. Production never matched his abilities.
