NFL Draft 2011: Looking Back at Bobby McCray Draft Pick
NFL Draft 2011 Could Be a Chance to Find Value Late in the Draft for the Jaguars
In 2004 Bobby McCray was picked up in the seventh round by the Jacksonville Jaguars as a guy to add depth to the Jags defensive line.
He progressed into a very productive player for them before moving to the New Orleans Saints in 2008.
Coming into the draft Mel Kiper thought that McCray was too inconsistent to be a productive NFL player.
“He has great closing speed and can get to the quarterback once he works past the OT. He’s not real instinctive, though, and will disappear from the action during some games. He’s an enigma in that he has all of the physical and athletic skills you look for, yet he didn’t always show it on a consistent basis.”
Although McCray started strong before getting a big payday in New Orleans, according to AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, his career took a bit of a dip when he became a member of the Saints.
“McCray was quite productive for the Jaguars for a seventh-round pick. He missed just three games in his four years with the team, starting 29 times. He had 22 sacks in his time in Jacksonville working predominantly as a pass rush specialist.
“He bolted to the New Orleans Saints as a free agent in 2008, signing a five-year deal that could be worth as much as $20 million and included a reported $5 million in the first season.
“He had 7.5 sacks in two seasons in New Orleans, then was signed in time to play in the regular season finale for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010.”
