Chris McFoy has been fortunate enough to play with special quarterbacks and be on national champion teams at USC, but unfortunate at the same time, playing the same position as Keary Colbert, Mike Williams, Dwayne Jarrett, and Steve Smith during his time at USC. After backing up Colbert and Williams, he looked to break out in 2004 as he had a starting job at the start of the season. A 17 year old true freshman named Dwayne Jarrett quickly emerged and pushed McFoy back into a reserve role, where he finished the year with career highs of 21 catches for 272 yards. As a junior last season, McFoy hauled in 17 passes for 172 yards, again backing up Jarrett and Smith. He closed out his Trojan career with 15 catches for 158 yards, and his first career touchdown, while missing six games on the year.
Chris McFoy is as steady as they come. You know what he is going to give you on every play, and that is everything he he has. He has a solid frame, and shows the strength and toughness to go over the middle and take a hit and hold on to the football. McFoy also has the ability to come out of his breaks quick enough to gain separation and when the ball is within his grasp, he catches it every time. He also does the little things that do not get the attention. McFoy is a very good blocker for a wideout, and has played on special teams for the Trojans.
While you know the good you are getting with McFoy, you also know what not to expect. He lacks the standout physical ability to be a true playmaker. He does not possess great speed or quickness, and will not be able to make big plays in the NFL on a consistent basis.
Chris McFoy is not a player you want to peg as a future starter, but he is a player who can help your football team. He can be a solid intermediate threat for teams as a fourth wideout, and his ability on special teams allows him to make an impact in another way outside of catching the football.
