2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: WR Isaiah McKoy

Kent State wide receiver Isaiah McKoy is a vertical threat who wins most consistently on deep shots up the field. He’s got a big frame, long strides, and when he’s picked up the flight of the ball in the air, he subsequently does well to track the ball over his shoulder. McKoy was also sparingly utilized in designed screen game to the boundary, but he will not be as effective there in the pros on account of his long strides and a lack of lateral agility. While McKoy does track the ball well in the air, he does have some issues with securing the football consistently at the catch point without double catches or drops—which is something to monitor as he looks to find his pro footing. In all, McKoy does not profile as someone with a high ceiling as a special teamer, so he will need to impress quickly to command early reps and an active roster spot as a downfield target. 

Ideal Role: Developmental Z receiver.

Scheme Fit: Vertical passing offense.
