Draft Lab: Gerald McCoy's stock
The Sooners DT is as close to a total package as you'll find on the college level
When a player has numerous strengths combined with one significant weakness, it is often said that weakness is an Achilles' heel. The term works as an effective literary shortcut but often isn't apt because, unlike Achilles' wholly debilitating flaw, most detriments of college football players aren't enough to eliminate the player's value.
Consider Oklahoma's superb defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. He has a slew of positives combined with a single negative that -- although it doesn't come anywhere close to eliminating his NFL potential -- certainly will have to be addressed by whichever team drafts him.
What could this one weakness be? Which NFL team might be the best fit for McCoy? Which NFL player is similar to McCoy? For answers to these questions and more analysis, you must be an ESPN Insider.
