Former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy appeared on the Dan Patrick show, via ProFootballTalk.com, to plead his case that he is the best quarterback in the upcoming National Football league Draft. McCoy made a great case for himself, but for him to say what he said publicly took a lot of guts.
According to the report, McCoy said, “I think I’m better than every quarterback in this draft. I think every quarterback has to have that mentality. You have to do that. So for me, I don’t compare myself to anyone else. I tell them what I’m going to do when I get there. I tell them I’m going to work my tail off, I tell them I’m going to do exactly what I did at UT. I earned my job, I earned the respect of my teammates and my coaches. Nobody worked harder than me, nobody was more prepared than me going into a game, and I’m going to do the same thing when I get to the NFL. It’s football, I love the game and you’re going to want me on your team.”
Many people may come off as that being cocky, but it isn’t it is self confidence as he knows with all the hard work he does he is one of the best quarterbacks. The fact of the matter is that you need this type of confidence in your quarterback as he will make mistakes, but with the mental approach he takes he will come right back and fix it.
What is more important in the article is that he knows it takes a lot of hard work and preparation to be one of the best. That kind of work ethic will be the reason that McCoy will make it in the National Football League.
In the end, this quarterback class is starting to have the feeling it could yield quite a bit of franchise quarterbacks.
