But does McCoy seem to be soft compared to Suh?  Suh just looks and carries himself like a blue collar slap the spit out your mouth type. McCoy just seems to be too sensitive to be a dominate DT. IMO

McCoy is close to two years younger than Suh. Lets try to remember that when we make our comparisons.

Success is when Skill meets OpportunityFailure is when Fantasy meets Reality

He can be as soft as a carebear off the field as far as I'm concerned... as long as he's a blood-thirsty scumbag ON the field.

If Tebow had broke down and cried like a baby when he was drafted - exactly like McCoy did - half of this board would be mocking him.  Same if Tebow had said "The Littlest Mermaid" was his all time favorite movie.

Personally I have no problems with players that break down a little on draft day.  This kids are realizing a dream so I don't find any weakness in showing emotion.

I agree and don't think it can be compared to breaking down and crying after a loss (ala Tebow).  Personally, I want people who get p!ssed off when they lose, not emotionally unstable.

Suh is a bull rusher. He will be very good but he wont be able to dominate NFL guards like he did in college with that one trick. McCoy is a very solid pass rusher and run stopper and has multiple moves.

BTW, if your referring to the draft, Suh was probably just somber having to move to Detroit. McCoy lost his mother a couple years ago, who got him this far. Nothing wrong with being emotional. It was a big day for all these guys.

You don't think he was pissed off?   I like a player who is emotional.   It's the guys who smile all the time like Donovan McNabb who never win the big games.   McNabb can throw a pick to Ronde Barber to lose them the NFC Championship game and still go off the field smiling.    I'd much rather see him cry than smile about it.    You can't tell me McNabb shouldn't have won a superbowl ring by now.   He has more physical skills than pretty much any QB who has ever played the game, but he's lacking that final winning instinct he needs to be great.     Tebow has that winning instinct.

No kidding.   This board has a bunch of koolaid drinking homers on it.   Anyone the Bucs pick is great in their eyes.   Even if they bawl like a little girl over nothing then go home and watch the Little Mermaid.

No, the reason people pick on Tebow is because he cries EVERY time he loses... I would have completely understood if he cried after he was drafted... It's the best moment of his career... I would EXPECT most of these guys to cry...

Are you kidding me?   Those guys are crying because they are finally getting a huge pay day.   That's crap if you ask me.   A national championship game is 100 times more emotional than a stinking draft.   These guys now need to get to their teams and get to work so they can play in some meaningful games where it would make sense to cry if they lose.

How many guys up through the 1970's that were drafted cried?  I mean weren't you ,as a boy, taught never to cry in public?  Never cry when you got hurt?  What the hell happened?  I saw at least 10 guys cry in the draft room last night.  I guess they don't make em like they used to.

Woooo, back up .  Why don't you go ahead and take that back and we'll pretend you never said it.  Now go outside and kick a dog or something.
