McCoy’s height not an issue

Posted by Chris Brown on March 9, 2010 – 10:20 am

Texas QB Colt McCoy has been knocked by the so called draft experts for his lack of height as he measured just a shade over 6’1″ at the NFL combine last month. But McCoy says his height was not an issue for NFL talent evaluators.

Based on the interviews McCoy had with NFL clubs at the combine, he told NFL.com’s Gil Brandt that teams did not see it as a negative. The reason why is because of McCoy’s high delivery angle.

When scouts watched him on tape they were impressed that very few of his passes were knocked down at the line despite his lack of height and attribute it partly to his delivery.

Drew Brees, who McCoy has been compared to at times, also find ways to keep passes from being batted down at the line of scrimmage despite being just 6-foot. He also is very good at finding passing lanes between defenders at the line of scrimmage.

McCoy said his shoulder is completely healed and 100 percent and that he’ll be full go at the Texas pro day, which according to the official NFL.com schedule is set for March 31st.
