There is no doubt that the Cleveland Browns are interested in Texas quarterback Colt McCoy. In a recent interview on WQXI-790 AM in Atlanta, McCoy made it clear that the feelings are mutual.
After his visit with team president Mike Holmgren, McCoy had nothing but great things to say about Holmgren and the Browns organization.
"I absolutely enjoyed Coach Holmgren," McCoy said. "He is a class act and I could definitely see myself playing in their organization.”
McCoy went on to say that he feels that it would be a tremendous opportunity to play for coach Eric Mangini and the Browns.
“I know that God is going to put me in the right place and we'll go to work from there.”
I don’t know if Cleveland has ever been considered “God’s country,” but as far as McCoy is concerned it’s where he wants to be.
As I have mentioned in a previous article, McCoy is a great fit for Holmgren’s style of offense. He is tremendously accurate on short slants and gets the ball out of his hands quickly.
This style of play gets the ball in the hands of the playmakers quickly and also keeps the quarterback from taking too many hits. This seems to be a perfect fit for both parties.
The only question mark now is how and when Cleveland will get McCoy.
The seventh pick is way too early to take McCoy, who will probably not touch the field for at least a year. The 38th pick might be too late.
So unless some moves are made to move back in the first round, or up in the second, the chances of McCoy ending up in Cleveland via the draft are slim.
