High School: St. Joseph Regional HS [Montvale, NJ]

Pick (Overall): 27 (27)
McCourty is an average sized cornerback with good athleticism. He runs well but doesn?t have premier speed out on and island. McCourty is a tough, competitive player that understands angles and route progressions. He is an active secondary defender that gets his hands on lots of balls but doesn?t always make the interception. McCourty has great hips, agility and balance to turn and stay in the receiver?s hip pocket. He does get overpowered at times versus larger receivers in block protection and on jump ball situations but he appears to know his limitations and is a defender. McCourty is a good football player that will likely contribute quickly at nickel back and special teams (returns as well as coverage units) in his rookie season.
