TE Anthony McCoy Scouting Report

TE Anthony McCoy, Southern Cal
Pos. Rank: 5Grade: 2nd-3rd RoundHeight: 6-4 1/2Weight: 25940: 4.71Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Athletic tight end prospect with a great amount of upside. Quickly releases off the line into routes, immediately gets to top speed, and fast enough to make plays into the secondary. Runs incredibly well, uses his hands to get separation from opponents and effortlessly makes the reception in stride, displaying good focus and concentration. Fast in a straight line or laterally, works to make himself an available target, and catches the ball extremely well. Fluid in all his movements and natural catching the ball. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and stout at the point of attack. Works blocks and displays better-than-average strength. Stays square keeping defenders in front of him and easily turns opponents off the line.

The Bad: Marginally productive the past two seasons. Lacks classic size/speed numbers. Has never truly been a difference maker at the position.

The Verdict: McCoy is a terrific tight end whose best football is ahead of them. A natural pass catcher, he also gives effort as a blocker, and he will only improve as a physically matures and gets more experience on the field.
