Gerald McCoy is one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL and is without a doubt the best in the NFC South. McCoy is an employer of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers and has had two back-to-back fantastic seasons. In that time span McCoy has 18 sacks and 13 stuffs. No offensive lineman looks forward to going up against him, and for good reason.

McCoy wreaks havoc on offensive guards and pushes them to the side like they aren’t even there. McCoy isn’t the type of guy that is going to make all of the headlines like Ndamukong  Suh will, but he is right up there with Suh as the best tackle in the league. McCoy will give quarterbacks Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Cam Newton fits in 2015.
