    Bronko to FB

    Wonder if our new OC would consider using Bronko as our full time FB?

    Seriously, no defense would want any of that pounding into them with a running start every play.

    Can he play center?

    Oh wait...yes...yes, he can...nevermind.

    I doubt he'd be much of a pass-catching threat... but we've currently use a guy at FB (Johnson) that is neither a pass-catching threat or much of a blocker, so he's an instant upgrade

    Gentlemen I have high hopes we return to a offense with a FB. And there seems to be a young man on the roster that could play that role just fine. Now that the EVIL one is gone. No need to make him a FB/TE. Just a FB or TE. But I hope FB.

    Jamie McCoy
    Listed as a FB/TE but I think he can be a good FB that can catch the ball.
    I hope a real camp helps him out and other young players this year.

    More info:
    03/16/2010 - PRO DAY RESULTS: Tight end Jamie McCoy (6-foot-2, 240 pounds) ran 4.56 and 4.57 seconds in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump. He had a time of 7.11 seconds in the three-cone drill and did 23 lifts on the bench press. McCoy's top 40 time would have placed him tied for second among tight ends at the combine behind the eye-popping 4.40 time posted by Pittsburgh's Dorin Dickerson. Numbers posted in the vertical jump, broad jump and bench press also would have placed McCoy among the combine's top performers at his position. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

    Also:
    Aggie FB/TE Jamie McCoy is currently projected as a possible late round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, if he gets drafted at all. McCoy ran a 4.56 and a 4.57 at the A&M Pro Day, times that would have put him at #2 among TEs at the NFL Combine. Unfortunately, McCoy was not invited to the NFL Combine for reasons that are still unclear to me (it should be noted that scouts also chose not to invite Texas Tech WR Wes Welker to the Combine when he finished his eligibility, either; six years and three All-Pro selections later, you have wonder how many scouts admit to the stupidity of that decision), so his numbers are not compared to what he did at the Combine.

    McCoy started all 13 games of the 2009 season, playing at both TE and FB. He finished with 35 receptions for 367 yards, 2 TDs, and 11 carries for 80 yards. At 6'2, 240 lbs, McCoy has the size and athleticism to excel as a blocker; he has the receiving ability to be a complete TE. He also can run the ball as a FB, or break the I and split out as a receiver. McCoy looks like a natural for the H-back position most teams want in their offense to replace the prototypical blocking TE, which is what makes the lack of interest in him so perplexing to me.

    If McCoy ends up drafted in the late rounds, I think some team is going to end up with an absolute steal at TE. If McCoy goes undrafted and has to sign on with a team as a free agent, he will have to go the same route Welker did, and prove everybody wrong when he gets into training camp and onto the field.

    Should I quit now?:
    McCoy bounced around between quarterback and wide receiver the first two years of his career at Texas A&M before making the switch to tight end for the 2008 spring drills. The move paid off as he developed into one of the best tight ends in the Big 12 over the past two seasons, making 78 catches for 867 yards and seven touchdowns. He set career highs with seven receptions for 110 yards and two scores in a 49-35 win over Iowa State on Oct. 25, 2008, and produced first downs on 30 of his 43 catches that season. In 2009, McCoy had 35 receptions for 367 yards and earned second-team All-Big 12 fullback honors on a potent Texas A&M team that averaged nearly 33 points per game. McCoy is an excellent athlete with good speed who rushed for 148 yards on only 17 carries during his career. The versatile McCoy never shies away from contact and has displayed a knack for making difficult catches across the middle, making him a good target in the passing game. Whether he has the strength to take the pounding an NFL fullback absorbs on a snap-by-snap basis remains to be seen, but McCoy has solid blocking ability and an intriguing skill set that should help him get drafted in one of the later rounds.

    Bronco at FB, Essex at Tight End and Snack the ball carrier. 3rd and 1 would never again be a problem.

    What makes you think that Casey could run that far?

    Belly fat touching the ground is the same a knee down. As soon as Snack tried to lean forward for the first down, his gut would likely get grass stains on it, and he'd be ruled down.
