Browns president Mike Holmgren almost always drafted a quarterback during his days as a coach. But NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock expressed faith in Cleveland's second-year quarterback Colt McCoy at a press conference Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.
"That kid did a heckuva job last year,'' Mayock said. "I watched some of his tape because I do a show called 'Playbook',' which is all NFL tape-based. "The kid's won at every level. What did I say earlier about quarterbacks? How much do they care about the game? Are they the first one in the building? That's him. He's a gym rat.
"So I'm betting on him and I think the Cleveland Browns are, too.''
Asked if he had any concerns about McCoy's arm, Mayock said, "His arm is above average. It's not great and it's not elite. But the league has been (filled) with those kind of kids forever.
"If you understand where and when to throw the football and get it out quickly, you're going to be fine.''
