Prospect Profile: Matt McCoy

Matthew McCoy School: San Diego State
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 230 40: 4.65 Year: 4Jr

Bio: Second team All-Conference selection after both his junior and sophomore seasons totaling 90/9.5/3 and 125/13/4 respectively.

Positives: Active defender who consistently makes plays on the ball. Disciplined, collapses from the outside defending the run and fights hard to make the play. Keeps the action in front of him, relatively instinctive and quick reacting to the ball. Displays good lateral skills and the ability to make plays out to the flanks. Gets depth on pass drops.

Negatives: Slow shedding blocks or gets swallowed up at the point of attack. Rarely makes plays on the pass.

Analysis: An undersized linebacker built more for the safety position, McCoy could catch on as a backup in the secondary or be used on the weak side in a 34 defense. Has a special team's mentality which could help him find a place at the next level.
