McCoy’s arm strength issues dismissed

Colt McCoy has been knocked for his arm strength as a lot of write ups point out his lack of prototype size and throwing short often in the Texas offense. ESPN’s Mel Kiper dismissed it.

“These people that are saying McCoy doesn’t have enough arm strength to play in a poor weather city are off the mark,” said Kiper. “They say McCoy threw all short passes at Texas, but the reason he did is because he had to. That offensive line for the Longhorns wasn’t all that great so he had to get the ball out to keep the offense moving. And critics say he’s too small. He’s not six feet and under 200 pounds. He’s 6’1 1/4″ and about 215 pounds. He showed he can throw deep at his pro day, which is why I have him going to Cleveland in the second round with the 38th pick.”

Personally, I think Clausen is still a possibility for Cleveland at seven with the Browns addressing other needs in round two. Holmgren saying he wished he liked Clausen more is a smoke screen.
