    Jamie McCoy Could Be A Steal In The NFL Draft

    Aggie FB/TE Jamie McCoy is currently projected as a possible late round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, if he gets drafted at all. McCoy ran a 4.56 and a 4.57 at the A&M Pro Day, times that would have put him at #2 among TEs at the NFL Combine. Unfortunately, McCoy was not invited to the NFL Combine for reasons that are still unclear to me (it should be noted that scouts also chose not to invite Texas Tech WR Wes Welker to the Combine when he finished his eligibility, either; six years and three All-Pro selections later, you have wonder how many scouts admit to the stupidity of that decision), so his numbers are not compared to what he did at the Combine.

    McCoy started all 13 games of the 2009 season, playing at both TE and FB. He finished with 35 receptions for 367 yards, 2 TDs, and 11 carries for 80 yards. At 6'2, 240 lbs, McCoy has the size and athleticism to excel as a blocker; he has the receiving ability to be a complete TE. He also can run the ball as a FB, or break the I and split out as a receiver. McCoy looks like a natural for the H-back position most teams want in their offense to replace the prototypical blocking TE, which is what makes the lack of interest in him so perplexing to me.

    If McCoy ends up drafted in the late rounds, I think some team is going to end up with an absolute steal at TE. If McCoy goes undrafted and has to sign on with a team as a free agent, he will have to go the same route Welker did, and prove everybody wrong when he gets into training camp and onto the field.

    It would be nice to have a true FB actually make the roster and contribute. Wishful thinking, I know...

    I agree that it would be nice to have a FB contribute. When we were rolling with Dan Kreider. It hopefully will help Mendy out a lot as well as our lineman. As for Warren, I think that he is a project, but def has good upside to him. Will prolly be better as a safety or nickel back in our scheme. Our veteran secondary guys will teach him how to be a pro.

    Kreider and Mendenhall combo would be wicked tough to beat. I'd be all over seeing those 2 hook up in the run game.

    I want Pitt's Henry Hynoski as the Steelers FB next season. The guy is pretty much a guard in the backfield with pass catching abilities. Pretty quick for a big man too! I could see Hynoski even lining up as tackle eligible on the goal line and catching some TD's.

    Unfortunately, if BA is still around, Hynoski will not be drafted... :-(

    As long as Arians is around, you guys can stop wishing for a real FB. Kuhn would still be here if it wasn't for Arains assinine ideas.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Donovan Warren was regarded a pretty good CB before last years draft. He fell and apparently havnt done much so far, but he have talent thats for sure. He was up around first round in some of the early mocks that year.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
