2010 NFL Draft:  Colt McCoy

The 6-3, 210 pounder out of Austin could be the biggest steal in this up coming draft. 

Why? He was in a national championship. How is that a steal?

Colt McCoy is easily the most under rated quarterback out of this year's draft class.

Bold statement. I know. I've looked at a few mock drafts and most have him falling to the second or third round. That is mind boggling to me.

As a senior at Texas, McCoy threw for 27 touch downs, 3,521 yards, and 12 interceptions. Not bad numbers. His career numbers are even better. McCoy compiled 13,253 yards and 112 touch downs. Not second or third round numbers if you ask me.

McCoy doesn't have the best arm in the game. I, obviously, know that. But what he does have is the will to win.

People may doubt his will to win after leaving the national championship for an injury. I'm not such a person to doubt him.

As most critics say, McCoy doesn't have the arm strength nor the speed to really be a threat in the NFL. I disagree, he can be a threat!

McCoy knows how to manage games within his skill set. He knows he can't run away from defensive linemen and he knows he can't throw the ball 100 yards down field. That is what makes him so successful.

The type of quarterback I see him being is one like an Eli Manning or Kyle Orton. Neither are overly flashy but both know how to get the job done.

He is a shotgun quarterback and he can run an offensive from the shotgun very well. In April, I see McCoy going mid first round, if not maybe early second. My prediction is for McCoy to go in the second round at number 33 to St. Louis.

St. Louis needs to win games. They haven't for a few years now. Like Vince Young, McCoy does that in a similar way. Not too flashy and just get the job done football. Marc Bulger isn't working in St. Louis and it is time for the Rams to move on.

The newest member of the Rams and the quarterback of the future, Colt McCoy.
