3. (C/OG) Erik McCoy, Texas A&M 6-4, 315 (2)
Why Erik McCoy Is Here On The List: A leader and star for a good A&M offensive line over the last three seasons, he’s got the bulk and size to fit on the pivot right out of the gate.
No, he’s not going to be much on the move and he’s not much of an athlete, but he’s a strong technician who doesn’t get overwhelmed. While he could move any play guar without much of a problem, his career is in the middle.
What The NFL Types Want To See: How well can he move? There’s no concern when it comes to what he did on the field, and the power is there, but can he manage to show just enough quickness to show a little more than being a crusher in the middle? Anything positive will be gravy.
Bottom Line: Someone will fall in love with him and make the call somewhere in the top 50. He’ll be the leader of a line for the next ten years and should be ready to go right out of the gate. In workouts, he’ll impress as he’ll look, sound, and play the part of a next-level center.
