Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy announced Friday that he will forgo his senior year and enter the 2010 NFL Draft.

After a standout sophomore campaign (11 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks), McCoy followed up with a similarly strong junior year (14.5 TFL, 5.0 sacks) despite incessant double teaming. The 6'4/297-pound defensive tackle projects as a "three-technique" gap shooter at the next level and is considered a top-five overall prospect. McCoy could also probably play end in a 3-4 system.

No surprises here. He''ll be a Top 5 pick for sure and will be a Top 3 player in this draft. He's also a very high character guy which will only help his stock.

Great prospect, no point in going back for him. Proved all he needed to.

3rd best prospect right now behind Suh and Berry. Top 5 pick for sure, might end up going 2 if Suh taken with the 1st

Was he wearing a Lions jersey when he made the announcement?

Great prospect, should have to versatility to play in either a 4-3 defense or 3-4 defense. He is a better fit for 4-3 defense though.

I don't see McCoy going nowhere except Detroit. Wait, I said this about Gaines Adams in 2007.

Lions needs to stop getting all of my (our) favorite players. It's getting ridiculous. :|

I guess that means we'll get Suh and McCoy won't do so hot in the NFL.

He's definitely a top 5 pick, and his best fit is in the 4-3.
