With the 220th Pick, the Bears Select CB Greg McCoy

The Bears finished out their draft by taking cornerback Greg McCoy out of TCU with the 220th pick of the draft.

The Bears doubled up on cornerbacks here in the late rounds, and compared to the larger Isaiah Frey, McCoy is smaller and shiftier at 5'9"~5'10" and 178 pounds. His primary impact to his TCU team was on special teams - a 30.6 yards-per-return last season with two kickoff returns for touchdowns. His combine measureables are pretty decent - good speed, 38-inch vertical leap, 6.62 3-cone drill.

As far as his corner skills, last year he had 2 interceptions, seven pass breakups, and 30 tackles - he recognizes the receiver's route well, can transition off the line, and can locate the pass in the air. He's also a hard hitter. However, he gets outmatched by larger receivers, which won't really be a problem with the way this team's defense is constructed.

He joins Frey on the depth chart, and likewise, won't be counted on defensively immediately. He figures to be in the mix as a kickoff returner. Your thoughts?
