Tennessee signed Rodger Saffold, but could use more guard talent. Additionally, Ben Jones is entering the last year of his contract and is not very good. McCoy has played some guard and could play there as a rookie before replacing Jones in 2020.
Some team sources think that McCoy is a better prospect than Frank Ragnow or Billy Price were last year, so he could end up going higher than expected. McCoy (6-3, 303) played well for Texas A&M in 2018, including impressive game tapes against Alabama and Clemson. Depending on the team that drafts him, he could be a plug-and-play starter.
McCoy has strong hands and is able to control defenders when he latches on to them. He has decent feel and awareness, plus is athletic. McCoy is smart to adjust and is quick to get out in space with the agility to hit blocks in the open field. In the ground game, McCoy is not a powerful pile mover and does not generate a lot of movement in the run game. Hence, he should add more functional strength for the NFL, but he is very quick and athletic. That was visible at the combine, where he put together a great workout. McCoy started at guard and center for the Aggies during the 2017 season after being the starter at center during his freshman year. He could play guard or center in the NFL, but center would be his best position.
