ESPN’s Todd McShay released his newest mock draft (ESPN Insider), and on top is a bit of a surprise.
The Oklahoma junior defensive tackle grabbed the No. 1 spot from Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh, who McShay tabbed as the No. 2 pick.
If the pair ends up being the top two picks in the draft, it will be the first time since 1999 that the top two picks played the same position. In 1999, Tim Couch, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith, all quarterbacks, were the top three picks.
McCoy is one of four Oklahoma players McShay projects to be drafted in the first round.
Other Sooners on McShay’s mock draft:
8. OL Trent Williams, Oakland Raiders.
9. QB Sam Bradford, Buffalo Bills
21. TE Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals
