Fans think Bucs should draft Gerald McCoy



Mccoy This is a cool NFL draft idea by AOL FanHouse. They asked fans to vote on which player the St. Louis Rams should pick with the first overall pick. Then that player's name was crossed off the list and it was on to the next poll asking whom the Detroit Lions should take with the second pick. The plan is to go through each of the teams.

So with the first pick, fans voted that the Rams should take Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford. With Bradford off the board, fans then voted the Lions take Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Then it was the Bucs' turn.

The overwhelming winner in the poll was Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who picked up 63 percent of the 1,947 votes. McCoy was followed by Tennesse safety Eric Berry (15 percent), Oklahoma State Dez Bryant (8 percent), Oklahoma State tackle Russell Okung (7 percent), USF defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and Florida cornerback Joe Haden (both 3 percent) and Iowa tackle Bryan Bulaga (1 percent).
