Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 2/53 -- LeSean McCoy, RB, 5-11, 204, Pittsburgh...With Brian Westbrook turning 30 in September -- he was slowed by a knee injury last season -- the Eagles needed to get a back who could step in immediately and share the load with Westbrook. McCoy is a fast, explosive runner who can catch the ball out of the backfield. The biggest concern with him is his blocking; if he can't block well enough to protect the quarterback, he won't get on the field. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *LeSean McCoy News
10/12/14 - RB LeSean McCoy, who came into Sunday night averaging just 54 yards per game and 2.9 yards per carry, had 85 yards by halftime, averaging 7.1 yards per carry. He finished with 149 yards on 22 carries, an average of 6.8 yards per attempt. QB Nick Foles thinks a big part of McCoy's success was his approach. "He was hitting the lanes hard," Foles said. "He wasn't trying to bounce it (outside). If he felt like he didn't have anything, he cut up inside for 3 or 4 yards. That really helps us out."
