Fleming on ESPN Insider

I'd be surprised if... 11) . Tampa Bay's rookie defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, the third-overall pick who stands at 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds and runs like a 'backer, doesn't end up reminding us that, despite all the attention paid to the defensive backs in the Tampa 2 scheme, the whole thing actually hinges on a DT who can dominate in the three technique, freeing up people to flood zones downfield by, essentially, playing two positions -- run stuffing and disrupting the QB -- all at once. When the late New York Giants GM George Young called guys "Planet Players" because they were the only ones on earth who could move like this, he was talking about guys like McCoy. So pay attention.
