Colt McCoy Hopes To Be Ready for NFL Draft Combine


Colt Mccoy Injury National Championship Game Verses Alabama

Colt Mccoy Injury - National Championship Game Verses Alabama

This is a little outside the news of the Tide, but since it was a Tide player that "put the Colt down" then I figured it was news worthy.

Colt McCoy visited the world famous sports doctor James Andrews of Birmingham, AL following the national championship in search of treatment for the pinched nerve that that knocked him out of the national championship game verses Alabama. McCoy has been seeing the doctors every week since then in obtaining treatment to be able to participate in NFL draft combine drills.

It is said that McCoy is back to throwing the ball 30-40 times a day and plans to fully participate in at least one NFL draft combine (possibly Indianapolis). He was quoted today as saying that the injury is "really coming along" and should be close to 100 percent.

Colt was quoted as saying...

 "The injury and I think the way that my college career ended has kind of sparked a fire inside of me as far as I'm going to show that I'm going to be ready to go. I'm going to show them that I'm the best, I'm going to show that I'm confident," he said. "I can't wait to step out on the field again, forget the taste that's in my mouth from the last time I played the game. That's what's driving me everyday."

The player of this year's Super Bowl, QB Drew Brees, demonstrated convincingly  that an undersized QB can play exceptionally in the NFL.. HOWEVER I personally believe that Colt McCoy will not make it far in the NFL if he is as fragile as he showed in the Alabama game. Alabama's Marcel Dareus is a big boy, no doubt, but don't expect McCoy to be the next Bret Favre and play every game until he is 40. IF he makes it to 30 in the NFL, I would be highly surprised.

Colt may prove me wrong. I don't wish him harm, I am just saying don't hold your breath if you expect his career to be a long one... But hey, I picked the Chargers to run the table to the Super Bowl... so what do I know?

Anyway, McCoy picked up one of the last of the collegiate accolades sent his way for a storied football career at Texas. Monday night he received the Davey O'Brien Award Monday, which is annually awarded to the nation's top quarterback.
