Mike McCoy: We were the new kids on the block

Posted Mar 17, 2014 staff writer Mike Spofford sat down with former Packers defensive tackle Mike McCoy who talked about living up to the expectations of being drafted No. 1, dealing with injuries, and the Packers being the team that could have been.

McCoy, drafted No. 1 by the Packers and second overall in 1970, started at defensive tackle for the Packers from the opening game of his rookie year. Named the Packers Rookie of the Year by the Wisconsin Pro Football Writers, he went on to rank among the NFL’s premier defensive tackles. A dominant figure on the Packers’ front line, McCoy recovered nine fumbles throughout his seven seasons.
