We are hearing DT Gerald McCoy has looked exceptional in the early stages of the Buccaneers’ training camp. The question for him, of course, is whether he can finally sustain a high level of play throughout a full season.

McCoy, who is lining up exclusively as a three-technique, has had each of his first two seasons cut short by biceps tears and has yet to live up to the hype that surrounded his arrival when the Bucs selected him with the third overall pick in 2010.

We are told he has consistently been disruptive in 11-on-11 drills camp, and that is no small feat given the competition lining up across from him. The Bucs have one of the league’s best guard tandems in Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, and sources on the scene in Tampa say McCoy is holding his own against that elite duo.

Head coach Greg Schiano has been impressed with McCoy thus far.
