  • The Forgotten QB in this Draft

    Colt McCoy!!!

    So often on the NFl channel (and this forum) Colt McCoy gets lost between the Tebow bashing and the Suh vs Bradford hype. But what about Colt McCoy? Have you seen this guy's statistics? They're off the charts!!! If he doesn't go in the first round, how could the Rams NOT take him in the 2nd?


    2009 Statistics:

    470 Att / 3,521 Yards / 70.6 cmp% / 7.4 YPA / 27 TD


    *Colt's 2009 stats aren't even his best year
    36
    Yes
    58.33%
    21
    No
    41.67%
    15

    I really like Peter Kings idea in this weeks MMQB. Take Suh with the first and trade into the mid of the first round to pick up McCoy (PK things McCoy will not last till our first pick in the second round).

    So a yes from me (but not with the nr 1 pick).

      You all really think Pike isn't close to a 2nd rounder but McCoy is a late first rounder ? lol

      good luck with this kid.

        I think the importance of getting a starting QB for THIS year means we draft one with our 1rst pick or swing a deal for one already in the league. If we get one already in the league(with one of our picks in the deal probably) then he would be our starter this season, and push off the need and the ability to address it til next year.

        I think the only way a 2nd tier QB is on this team next year is if Bulger stays, Feely backs him up, and we get rid of Null and Rielly.

        Eagles want a 2nd for Vick, HA WTF ever, I think they have overplayed their hand here IMO.

          Yup, yup, yup

          Colt certainly is worth a 2nd round pick, while Pike has a lot of question marks by his name. The only issues Colt seems to have is durability and playing under center. But his shoulder wasn't hurt that bad and just about every QB has to learn to play under center. So what if he sits a year?

          No character issues either.

            I'd like us getting Colt, but I don't really see him going in the first.

                I would rather have Tebow, Lefevour or Pike.

                Go for Lefevour or Pike in 3rd round.

                    Right on. I think that would be a perfect-world scenario.

                    In my mind, however, I'm still debating between McCoy and Bradford.

                      If we go for Colt McCoy that means we will get King Suh. I like that scenario.

                        Re: The Forgotten QB in this Draft

                        Really who knows about QB's in this league? Everybody is always saying how that is the hardest position to scout and predict their success. We haven't seen all the tape again and again the scouts have on the top four QB's.

                        I really don't know what separates them at all. I have heard most often that Bradford, Clausen, McCoy, and Tebow all have really high football IQ's. I haven't heard about any of them having an absolute cannon for an arm, although both tebow and Bradford do have pretty good arm strength. And the only one who has worked under center is Clausen. I still don't know why anybody would take Bradford over McCoy except that he is 2 inches taller? 15 pounds heavier? Except for that they both were very successful in the same system. And from everything i've heard McCoy is a better leader, of course how do you measure that though.

                        I just don't understand the big difference between at least Clausen, McCoy, and Bradford. Tebow needs to work on his throwing motion of course. But I just don't see the drop off in talent like McShay and Kiper do. as a matter of fact everybody has Clausen and Bradford as tier 1 while everybody else is tier 2. Can somebody explain to me why that is. I really do believe it is all media perception that has these two rated so high above everybody else.

                        I honestly don't know who the rams should take as a QB? I don't know why they have to take one this year except that the front office needs to win to keep their job.

                        I would just as soon take Suh and draft McCoy in the second round.

                        Or Take Bradford with the overall pick and try to pick up Jermaine Gresham with my 2nd.

                        Or Trade to the fourth spot with Washington for extra picks this year or next year. Get Clausen (if they are so high on Bradford).

                        But we'll see.

                          Re: The Forgotten QB in this Draft

                          I like Colt a lot and I think if given time he'll be a premier QB but he's not there now so he's not worth a 1st or top of the 2nd round pick. The further out you go with the development program, the more risk there is he'll ever get there.

                          Colt has the intangibles. It's his lack of NFL quality tangibles that make him a 4th round pick.

                            Tebow will have a very powerful throw when he get's his technique down, right now he is using all arm power. He has scary potential.

                            But I dont see the logic in taking Lefevour or Pike in the 3rd round. If there is a player you see as your franchise Qb, why are you waiting until the 3rd round? If your goal is to develop them, why then do we have Bulger, Boller, Feeley, Null, and Reily? We can only have so many on a roster. I don't think a project is what the rams are shooting for.

                            Most likely Feeley is replacing Boller at #2 QB, and Null/Reily will battle for #3. The starting job either has to be Bulger, or a new Qb.

                              THAT is an important issue. If Bradford is either a 1st pick but no worse than a 6-7th pick, he IS considered by NFL scouts to be a premier long term prospect. If you are taking a kid in the 3rd or 4th round, they may be the same in the long term but they have more risk and require more development. As you say, those aren't equal traits as some would like to claim.

                              Personally, with several games of NFL playing time, I'd rather continue the development of Null than add a 4th round QB to the mix who isn't an obvious upgrade in every way.

                                If we take Suh #1 what do you think the chance of us taking McCoy at #33? How would you feel about him being our future qb? I know little about him and havent seen much of his play.

                                The Rams have the #1 pick in the draft which comes as no surprise to a lot of people. It is pretty clear that the Rams are not gonna pass up on a monster like Ndamukong Suh. But that does not mean that they can't find a franchise QB in the draft. Why? Think about it! Joe Montana went in the 3rd round and won 4 Superbowl's with the *****, Brett Favre went in the 2nd round, Drew Brees who won the Superbowl yesterday was drafted in the second round, Tom Brady went in the 6th round!



                                I think the future franchise QB for the Rams is Colt McCoy. I actually think Colt McCoy is the next Joe Montana (no joke). Joe Montana came from a famous school in Notre Dame but wasn't really looked at as your prototypical NFL quarterback. But he was still an accurate passer and he was a winner. That is what I see what with Colt McCoy which is an accurate passer and a winner. People doubt him because of his arm but those same people doubted Drew Brees and he won a Superbowl MVP yesterday.


                                If the Rams do draft Colt McCoy he might not contribute right away. So the Rams should sign Marc Bulger to a two year deal that way Colt Mccoy can develop more. I know there are going to be some that will disagree with me (or a lot who will). But I will stick by my statement until proven wrong. Colt McCoy is the next Joe Montana!

                                Scott Wright at Draft Countdown has the Rams taking Colt McCoy at the top of the second (after Suh with the first pick).

                                How would you feel about that??

                                Are there a chance that Colt McCoy is still there at nr 33?
                                by clarasDK
                                I am pretty sure that the Rams will take Bradford with the nr 1 pick this year. But in my heart I still hope for some lucky break that will give us Suh and Colt McCoy in the second round.

                                I have tried to analyse the first round to see what the chances are for McCoy to slip to the pick nr 33.

                                As I see it the QB order is:
                                1. Bradford
                                2. Clausen
                                3. McCoy

                                Tebow could be a wildcard that could pop up before Clausen or McCoy. But nobody really has an idea where and to whom Tebow will go.

                                That means if the Rams takes Suh only two other teams can take a QB or else Colt will be gone before nr 33.

                                Bradford would probably go to the Redskins(4), Seahawks(6) or Browns (7)

                                Clausen would probably go to Raiders (8), Bills (9) or Jaguars (10)

                                I think most teams would see it as a reach go after Colt McCoy in the top 10.

                                From pick 11-20 I only think the Whiners would consider taking him (as they have two picks they could use pick nr 17 to take a chance).

                                From 21 - 32 I only see the Vikings having a real QB need.

                                Scenario 1:
                                So for the McCoy with nr 33 scenario to happen we would have to hope that no one sees him as having top 10 value, That the Whiners don't take a chance on him, that nobody wants to pay for trading up before the Vikings and that the Vikings do not take him.

                                I would say the Vikings taking him is the biggest risk here.

                                Scenario 2:
                                Raiders take the player with the best 40 time or some workout warrior like OT: Bruce Cambell
                                Bills go BPA and take a player like Spiller
                                Jaguars takes Tebow (that would at least sell some tickets) or another player that they consider to be BPA with nr 10.

                                That might lead to Clausen falling to the Vikings who would take him.

                                Again in this scenario nobody are allowed to trade up to take McCoy and the Whiners should also keep their hands of him.

                                Scenario 3:
                                Rams trade up to get him.

                                The question is how fare up do we have to go?

                                Trade partners coulde be:

                                27. Dallas
                                They do not have that many big needs in the draft so they could be interested in a trade. Maybe our second pick this year and next year (with option of it being a 1 pick next year instead if Colt McCoy plays well as a rookie)? Or something similar.
                                29. Jets
                                Same as Dallas

                                We could probably also get a deal going with a team like Philly at nr 24 or the Patsies at nr 22 (they love to trade out of the first round). But that would probably be even more costly.

                                Maybe we could sweeten a deal with the Patsies by throwing in Carriker who would be good fit as a DE for their 3-4 defence, and they have had problems keeping pressure on their opponenents QB's last year.

                                The questions is "is...

                                Top 5 Senior QB's
                                by ManofGod
                                According to Mel Kiper Jr., the top 5 senior QB's are as follows:

                                1. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
                                2. Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
                                3. Dan Lefevour, QB, Central Michigan
                                4. Tony Pike, QB, Cincinnati
                                5. Sean Canfield, QB, Oregon State

                                I believe a few of you may be suprised by this order, and whether you are a fan of his Kiper or not, he does seem to have acces to what many NFL teams are looking for when it comes to the draft. Now this draft order is current (1/8/10), and of course we will have to wait until the combine to see who's stock falls, who's rises, and who simply falls off of the face of the earth.

                                Now since we have the #1 pick in almost every round, baring a monumental improvement by these five men, they will all be available in the 2nd round for us & if necessary the 3rd or 4th. Now I know many of you are Pike fans, and some of you favor McCoy or Lefevour. Some of you even believe in the magic that is Tim Tebow (as I do), but we obviously need to look towards our QB of the future. I believe we start Bulger this season for many reasons most notably being financial, but we do need to start grooming the successor.

                                With that being said my fellow clam members, who from these 5 men would you want behind center as the #2 or #3 QB(provided that we move Null up to #2, or pick up another free agent in the off-season)?
