Former Texas A&M OL Erik McCoy has been selected for the 2024 Pro Bowl

Ahead of this weekend’s 2024 Pro Bowl festivities, it was announced that former Texas A&M offensive lineman Erik McCoy had been selected to the NFL Pro Bowl roster in place of Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow, who has continued to deal with multiple injuries.

After five seasons as the New Orleans Saints’ starting center, McCoy, who didn’t miss a single game during the 2023 season, has remained one of the most dependable offensive linemen year after a year, outside of dealing with several injuries over the last couple of seasons.

Coming out of the 2015 recruiting class, McCoy was a highly underrated 3-star prospect out of Lufkin, Texas, redshirting during his freshman season before earning the starting center job during the 2016 campaign.

Adding weight and strength over the years, McCoy’s technically sound hands and feet, paired with a keen understanding of leverage, led to starting 38 games during his Aggies career, entering the 2019 NFL drafter after his junior season.

Erik McCoy is the first Saints’ starting center to be selected to the Pro Bowl since center Max Unger in 2018.
