Matt Miller says Aaron Donald's a better defensive tackle than Gerald McCoy

Over at Bleacher Report, Matt Miller's busy ranking the top 1000 NFL players, going position by position. Coming in as the third-best defensive tackle in the NFL: Gerald McCoy. Third is nothing to scoff at, of course, but it's just slightly disappointing -- and most of it because of his run defense. According to Miller, McCoy gets pushed out of his lane too often and made just 18 solo tackles last year. The bit about the solo tackles is true, but not too telling -- not when Lavonte David's flying around, and certainly not when McCoy's job isn't to actually make tackles: it's to force the...

Gerald McCoy makes NFL Top 100 of 2015 at #28

Gerald McCoy has once again been named to the NFL Top 100 of 2015, coming in at #28 -- the exact same position he was named to last year. McCoy is the third member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to make the list this year, after Mike Evans made it at #75, while Lavonte David was named the 56th best player. The best part of these Top 100 lists isn't really the list itself, though, but the NFL Films-produced vignettes where others comment on the player's strengths. And you can watch Gerald McCoy's vignette right here. Dashon Goldson even says that he has "the potential to be a Hall of Famer."...

Can Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David get even better?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have two star players that make their defense go: Lavonte David and Gerald McCoy. We all know how good they are: McCoy's made three consecutive Pro Bowls, was named a first-team All-Pro once and a second-team All-Pro once and has 23 sacks over the past three seasons. Lavonte David's accolades are a little more ephemeral, mostly limited to one first-team All-Pro selection and a ludicrous amount of tackles, but that has more to do with the way the NFL prioritizes edge rushers over 4-3 outside linebackers. Given that both players have been playing at a very high level...
