Bills will meet pre-draft with Colt McCoy

New, comments

Chris Steuber at Scout.com is reporting that the Buffalo Bills, along with the St. Louis Rams, will host Texas quarterback Colt McCoy for a two-day visit on April 11 and 12.

One of the most decorated winners in college football history, McCoy is a four-year starter that helped guide the Longhorns to a 45-8 record over the past four years after taking over the starting job from Vince Young as a redshirt freshman. The 6'1", 216-pound McCoy is regarded as a second- or third-round talent, though scouts are worried not just about his playing abilities, but about a pinched nerve in his throwing shoulder that he suffered in January's BCS National Championship Game.

McCoy will work out for scouts on March 31 at the Texas Pro Day.

It's no secret that Buffalo is in the market for a new quarterback, and to date, it's already public knowledge that the team has met with (or will meet with) McCoy, Florida's Tim Tebow and Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen. More visits and/or workouts are certain to be scheduled over the next month.

The first round of the 2010 NFL Draft will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 22.
