Scouting Report: Strengths
  • McCord shows very nice touch on deep balls, as well as the ability to anticipate windows and fit in tight throws with good velocity.
  • Enough arm strength to drive the ball through tight windows up to 20 yards downfield. Spreads the ball around to multiple receivers.
  • He has a quick release and shows good accuracy on shorter throws when on the move to either side.
  • Ball placement at short and intermediate levels is a strength. He moved quickly through progressions when asked to.
  • Possesses an NFL arm. Gets the ball from one hash to the opposite sideline in a hurry. Has the zip to hit tight windows on short and intermediate throws.
  • McCord has plus arm strength and a willingness and ability to throw receivers open, as well as good ball placement out to intermediate levels.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Doesn’t throw as well on the move, especially when targeting receivers outside the numbers.
  • McCord often holds the ball too long. While McCord keeps his eyes up while moving, his mechanics get increasingly sloppy once he’s pushed off his spot.
  • McCord has heavy feet in the pocket and loses zip and accuracy when moved off his spot; he’s also a stationary target for pass rushers.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
