The end to Colt McCoy’s storied college career was deeply disappointing, but he says the nerve damage in his shoulder shouldn’t change his future.
“There’s nothing structually wrong with my shoulder. It’s going to be completely healed up, completely fine. It’s not something that’s more likely to happen now than any other injury.”
McCoy’s injury and stature has somewhat lazily drawn comparisons to Drew Brees, which McCoy was happy to take. He measured in at 6’1 and 1/4 and jokingly was apologetic about it.
“I’d like to say I’m 6’4, but this is what God gave me,” McCoy said. (He could have given you a lot less, thinks the 12-year-old looking 31-year-old.)
McCoy says he can’t tell the difference in his shoulder strength in the weight room and will throw fully at Texas’ Pro Day on March 30. McCoy is telling teams to look past the injury and the measurements.
“I have a lot of intangibles you can’t measure.”
