Analyst: Longhorns Colt McCoy not a first-round pick, now fourth-best QB prospect

Mel Kiper of ESPN is not even considering McCoy as a first rounder. The only QBs he sees going in the first 32 picks are Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen.

According to, Kiper was asked whether McCoy could be a possibility for Minnesota with the 30th pick of the first round as a future replacement for Brett Favre.

“I think (for) Colt McCoy, that’s a little early,” Kiper said. “I think maybe second round, third round, or fourth round is not out of the question. Dan LeFevour from Central Michigan has moved ahead of McCoy based on my board and some people in the league I talk to. ”
