Number Six: Erik McCoy

Erik McCoy was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft for the New Orleans Saints and started all 16 games as a rookie center last season.

However, the Saints opted to draft Cesar Ruiz in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft and asked McCoy to bump over to guard, a position in which he has transitioned well to.

McCoy was a very good center in 2019, which was no easy task as he was forced to replace Max Unger who decided to suddenly retire out of the blue following the 2018 season.

McCoy didn’t let the pressure of snapping the ball to Drew Brees get to him and he ended up making the PFWA All-Rookie team following the season. With a season under his belt, the sky is the limit for the potential McCoy has.
