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
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.
