2019 Ravens Draft Watch: Erik McCoy

March 22, 2019
An NFL team meeting with individual players is a significant part of the draft process. These meetings can happen at the NFL Combine, pro days, the Senior Bowl or a private workout. 
 
For fans following the process, these meetings are sort of like poker tells for the draft, as they indicate what positions a team could be focusing on. Do teams draft players they haven't met? Yes, they do. It happens all the time, but they have often spoken to other players at that position. 

Who have the Baltimore Ravens met with so far? Check out the list at WalterFootball.com

So far, teams have had access to players at the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl, the Combine and now pro days. The Ravens met with Texas A&M guard/center Erik McCoy in a private meeting. Let's get to know him better. 

Tale of the Tape: 

Height: 6-foot-4

Weight: 303 pounds 

Strengths: Excellent feet and quickness with a thick lower body that makes him tough to push around; plays with a nasty demeanor in the run game. 

Areas for Improvement: His biggest area of concern is his length, which is something he can’t do much about. He has "short" arms, but because of his excellent hand placement and quick feet, he gets the job done.

Other Notes: Was a starter at center for all but two of his 38 starts at Texas A&M; named team captain last season; solid game tape against Alabama and Clemson.

Draft Projection: Late first- or early second-round prospect who should start immediately at either center or guard and is in play for the Ravens with the No. 22 pick.
