With their seventh-round pick (No. 220 overall) of the 2012 NFL draft, the Bears selected TCU cornerback Greg McCoy.

McCoy was a four-year starter for the Horned Frogs, recording 92 tackles, seven interceptions and 17 pass breakups. At 5-10, 181 pounds, McCoy also uses his speed as a kick returner, averaging 28.9 yards per return with three touchdowns in 52 chances.

He was named Mountain West special teams player of the year last season when he averaged 30.6 yards with two touchdowns.

ProFootballWeekly.com summarizes McCoy in the following way: Undersized cornerback whose biggest impact will be on special teams gained 30.6 yards per return on kickoffs as a senior and had three career touchdowns, including two in 2011. Has good top-end speed, as well as a 38-inch vertical leap, and clocked a 3-cone drill time of 6.62 seconds. Overcame stacked odds to have success in college.
