Mark Dominik Talks About Gerald McCoy

April 22nd, 2010

Bucs general manager Mark Dominik appeared live on WDAE-AM 620 to discuss his selection of Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

“It worked out. As soon as Sam Bradford went off the board, we knew we had our guy. There was a lot of cheering in the war room. We’re proud to have him on the field and off the field. He’s a great young man to add to our organization.

“He’s a passionate kid. He really loves football. It’s his lifelong dream to be a three technique for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He just realized his lifelong dream has begun.

“He’s a two-time captain as a sophomore. He’s one of the best leaders Bob Stoops said he ever had and that is a helluva statement. He’s physical, he has a strong upper body, he has a strong upper body and he is durable. We went through him medically with a fine-tooth comb and he passed with flying colors. We want him to get involved in the rookie minicamp next week.

“One of the games we went back to watch was against Josh Freeman at K-State and he showed how disruptive he was. He made the players around him a good football team and that is what a good three-technique tackle does even though those guys may not have the numbers. Look at Simeon Rice. Not taking anything away from Simeon Rice, but he worked out with Warren Sapp so well. They were great for each other.

“Warren carries some weight around here, he liked McCoy. But I wasn’t going to tell Warren who we were picking. He’s part of the media now. I didn’t want him to tell any of his media friends.”
