McCoy has been a joy to watch in his first two years in the NFL.
The Eagles second round pick (53rd overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft was Pitt RB LeSean McCoy. McCoy came out of Pitt with the reputation as being a "dancer". A back, in the mold of Reggie Bush, who dances in the backfield and waits for a lane to open up. This style typically doesn't translate well to the NFL, which is why he dropped to the second round despite being considered one of the more gifted running backs in the 2009 draft class. In his first two NFL seasons, McCoy has proven that he is more than that, he can run in between the tackles and get the tough yardage. In addition, he is an exceptional receiver out of the backfield.
McCoy put up 637 rushing yards on 155 attempts in his first year in the NFL. On top of that he added 40 receptions for 308 yards. He was even better in 2009, running for 1,080 yards on 207 carries (5.2 YPC) and adding 592 yards on 78 receptions. This is indeed the second coming of Brian Westbrook. If McCoy can sure up his blocking, something Westbrook excelled at, there is no reason to think McCoy can't have a similar, if not better, career than BWest.
