Gerald McCoy, DT - Oklahoma

Pick made by shake n bake:

While the Seahawks have serious needs at QB and LT, Seattle should have no problem getting a quality LT prospect at the #14 pick and McCoy is the clear best player on the board at a position where they could use an upgrade. McCoy also addresses the Seahawks other top 3 need, though a bit unconventionally. The Seahawks leading sacker was 33 year old Patrick Kerney with just 5. Seattle needs a better pass rush. Most attempts to address this are with a DE, but McCoy is the best pass rushing DT in the class.

How will he impact the Seahawks in 2010?

Pairing McCoy with Brandon Mebane (5.5 sacks in 2008) inside in passing situations could bring some serious heat along the shortest route to the QB. McCoy would fight Mebane for a starting spot, rotate heavily if he lost, and likely pair with Mebane in passing situations.

If McCoy is taken #6 by the Seahawks, it would be the first DT taken in the first round by the Seahawks since 2004, when they drafted Marcus Tubbs #23 overall. He will also be the first DT from Oklahama drafted in the first round since Tommie Harris was drafted #14 overall by the Bears in 2004.
