Head over and check out ESPN Senior Writer Jeffri Chadiha's story on former Oklahoma star Gerald McCoy. Plenty of great stuff from McCoy's past leading up to now.

There was a time when Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was deemed the only defensive player in this class worthy of that honor. Now McCoy -- who could've been a high pick after his redshirt sophomore season in 2008 -- has reminded people why the St. Louis Rams should consider him with that selection as well.

"When people started talking about me again, it wasn't like I thought they forgot about me," McCoy said. "It's just that when people watched college football last year, Ndamukong Suh was the guy people talked about because he dominated and had a breakout year. But now that we're going into the NFL, things change."

Though the Rams haven't publicly picked a favorite between Suh and McCoy -- "We're hoping somehow there's separation, because in our eyes, there isn't any," Rams general manager Billy Devaney said at the combine -- McCoy has his share of fans.

He's all of those things now, but Chadiha digs in to how he got there. Check it out.
