When an almost unknown employee from Lufkina, McCoy won the New Orleans Saints with 48th overall, 16th in the second round of the 2019 NFL project Friday night. Selection hats are a significant increase for McCoy, who was the best Aggie offensive leader since Germain Ifedi left after the 2015 season.
At the beginning of the 2016 season, McCoy entered the offensive center as a red shirt and was immediately named the "SEC Offensive Lineman" for his performance in the Aggies Season Opening Victory against UCLA. With the exception of a few guards, he never left for the next three years. He has never refused the bag that is protected.
McCoy's strength and outstanding achievements were obvious to those who followed A&M closely, and out of court to a great extent forgotten. He was not an All-SEC selection in 2018, even though he served as a major advanced offense at the conference and Aggies ended the season with a 9-4 record.
Things changed after NFL merging in Indianapolis, because McCoy ran a 4.89 second 40-yard dash, which was the best among the offending lines. After a great combination of performance, McCoy shot the skirting and was in a conversation as a possible first interior.
Five years after Rivals.com was rated as a 5.4 star star and only six offers – Houston and Oklahoma were the best, except for A&M, and McCoy has become one of the best stories and early choices.
The choice of the sacred McCoy is ideal, as the 10-year-old Max Unger veteran suddenly retires after the end of last season. Now McCoy will hide in the future Hall of Fame QB Drew Brees and will have the opportunity to participate in a ten-year career.
