McCoy is Miami bound
As a redshirt senior, McCoy entered 2009 as a role player for the Blue Raiders. He had a breakout year, however, and helped lead Middle Tennessee to a 10-3 record and its first bowl victory since joining college football's highest level. In recognition of his efforts, McCoy was named the 2009 Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year after ranking sixth nationally in tackles for loss (20) and 14th in sacks (7).
The next step for McCoy is to go through his first professional training camp. While identified as a legitimate OLB prospect, many commentators also suggested that he is undersized. McCoy is currently listed at 6-4, 245 lbs. and will likely have to focus on beefing up over the next few months as well learn his new position.
Coincidentally, McCoy will join another former Blue Raider player on the Dolphins. Erik Walden was originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, but spent last season with Miami. Walden was another defensive lineman who made the move to outside linebacker in the NFL.
