LeSean McCoy RB 5'11 208 Pitt So. 4.51

By: Robert Davis

McCoy fractured his ankle during his senior year in high school and eligibility issues led him to Milford Academy before enrolling at Pitt. As a freshman last year he made an immediate impact for the Panthers, rushing for 1,328 yards and 14 scores on the ground, while adding 244 yards and a touchdown on 33 receptions. He didnít disappoint as a sophomore, rushing for 1,488 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground in addition to his 32 receptions for 305 yards.

Strengths

McCoy is a big play waiting to happen. He has tremendous feet and is very shifty. He has excellent quickness and can change direction with ease, often leaving defenders standing still. He combines that quickness and elusiveness with excellent long range speed, and once he hits a seam, he is off to the races. He shows the willingness to run the between the tackles and his balance allows him to slip away from arm tackles. McCoy has also been an excellent receiver out of the backfield and should be a legitimate threat in this are in the NFL.

Weaknesses

McCoy has only average size at best, and that limits his ability as a feature back. He lacks the power in his game to pick up much yardage after contact and he will rarely break tackles where the defender gets a shot on him.

Future

McCoy declared after his sophomore season and rates as one of the best backs available for the draft. Chris Wells and Knowshon Moreno should be taken ahead of him, and Donald Brown of Uconn has used the post season to vault himself ahead of McCoy on many draft boards and is likely to be the third back off the board. He was unable to workout at the combine because of an illness which saw him drop to 198lbs. At the Pitt pro day, McCoy was healthy and back up to 208. His 4.51 timings are solid, but with speed and playmaking ability as his calling card, it wasnít enough to push him back into consideration for the end of Round 1. Heís still a very good prospect, he just may wait until the middle of the second round to hear his name called now.
