    i wouldn't argue with okung over mccoy. if we're rebuilding then it doesn't matter if we have a jeff backus. bpa approach doesn't consider a mediocre soon to be 33 year old tackle as a sticking point to not taking a top valued player.

      fair enough

      A few things I saw yeterday soured me on McCoy.

      1. 23 reps. Kyle Wilson had more. No DT who is suppose to go top 5 should get less reps thn a cb.

      2. 40yd dash - didn' do bad but didn't beat Suh.

      3. the 3 Cone drill (and ths is the big one) - bombed first attempt the coach said something McCoy said "I refuse" I'm trying to find it to make sure I'm not crazy. But if I'm not that screams char issues.

      This with Okung blowing it up makes me not want McCoy.

      Spoon is all that is man. Asfor RB I think Mathews and tate are the best in the class

        Matthews please and thank you!

          McCoy is as high character a guy as there is. He said "i refuse" to himself (to make himself do better), not to the coach.
          save Freeman

            Any proof of this?

              I didn't catch it, but I would also agree McCoy has probably the best character in this draft outside of Tebow, nothing about him is even close to being bad character at all. I would have to go back to look for that blurb, but I highly doubt it was in the context you thought it was, just because McCoy isn't that type of player at all.


              I found some interesting things about McCoy after the combine also:



              According to CBS' Charley Casserly, the consensus at the Combine was that Gerald McCoy is a slightly better prospect than Ndamukong Suh.
              Suh had more college production in a read-and-react scheme and easily had a better Combine, but NFL evaluators apparently still think McCoy offers more upside. "It's a little more McCoy 1A and Suh 1B," said Casserly. "I ask two questions: Who's the better athlete and who's the better pass rusher? McCoy comes up more often than not as the yes guy there."

              According to FoxSports.com's John Czarnecki, Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo would select Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy if the draft was today.
              Spags apparently feels strongly enough about McCoy that the rest of the front office would go along the pick. Fans of Sam Bradford in the organization will have to wait for his pro day in late March to build momentum. If Bradford is able to allay doubts about his shoulder, we still believe the Rams will end up going quarterback at No. 1. Mar. 2 - 6:46 pm et

              I guess it depends on who you ask, but some teams are very very high on McCoy after the combine, so I really don't think he's played himself out of the #2 spot.

                He might have kept himself at #1 even, if Spags really likes him. Good news for the Lions, having to take Suh :P.
