Just his name- Colt McCoy, sounds like a gun slinging QB name. A name even as gun slinging as Brett Farve or Sammy Baugh. But that’s not the only reason why we think McCoy will be a great QB in the NFL and ultimately be a better QB than both Bradford and Clausen.
Here are the reasons why:
His leadership skills are out standing-
He only trails Tim Tebow when it comes to motivating his players and leading them down the field for a touchdown.
His leadership skills could help him greatly in this year’s draft as NFL teams are always looking for a great leader at QB.
His consistency is amazing-
After being redshirted his freshman year, McCoy has been the starter, and has done incredibly well. He broke the record for most Longhorn TD’s in a season the first year he started, only to break it again two years latter. He also lead his team to four consecutive bowl games, winning three in a row, only to injury his shoulder in the first quarter of this last year’s BCS bowl loss.
He is as accurate as a calculator-
His accuracy is unsurpassable. Not only can he hit short routes with pin point accuracy, he can nail medium and long range passes with ease, putting them in spots only his receivers can catch them. He is the most accurate passer in this draft.
He is mobile-
Sometimes his mobility can be over looked, but McCoy moves very well in the pocket and in open space. He is sometimes considered a dual threat QB because his mobility is so impressive. He would be able to make plays with his feet ala Fran Tarkenton if the team that selects him doesn’t have a high quality offensive line.
So what does this all break down to? In the end McCoy will be the best QB selected from this year’s draft. He will be similar to how Jay Cutler was viewed before his draft, slightly over looked because of bigger names, but will eventually emerge as the best. Another thing on McCoy’s side, is his comparison to Drew Brees. And that statement is correct. That vibe he puts off could be a tool that will help him get drafted higher up than what everybody thinks. Unfortunately, the wealth of offensive and defensive linemen in the draft will make McCoy fall. But we could see him still possibly getting picked in the first round. But overall some where between 25-40. Some teams in the first round could be Arizona or Minnesota.
