While at Texas, McCoy became the winningest quarterback in NCAA history with 45 victories; in addition, he was a two-time first-team AP All-American. In 2008, McCoy won the Walter Camp Award for being the player of the year, and was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. During the 2009 season McCoy took home the Maxwell Award(collegiate player of the year), Davey O’Brien (top QB), and Johny Unitas Golden Arm Award (top Sr. QB)
In his time at Texas, McCoy complied over 13,200 yards of passing, 112 TD’s compared to 45 INTS, and a 70.2 completion percentage.
McCoy seemed to be the best fit in this year’s draft to run Mike Holmgren’s West Coast offense. Many wondered when McCoy would finally be selected, but do not fret Browns’ fans, the team got their man. It just took a little longer than most expected.
