Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it would be expected for McCoy to complete all of his passes.
"This is not real football, this is a workout," Carroll said. "His footwork was really good."
Carroll rated McCoy's arm strength, a question mark for some scouts, as "solid."
McCoy passed for 13,253 yards and 112 touchdowns in his career, both school records. He was 45-8 as a starter and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy as a junior and senior.
He was a redshirt freshman when Vince Young led Texas to the 2005 national championship and guided the Longhorns back to the title game last season, only to get hurt in the opening minutes after throwing two passes. Freshman Garrett Gilbert played the rest of the game in the 37-21 loss to Alabama.
McCoy said he has private workouts scheduled with six teams, identifying only the St. Louis Rams, who hold the top pick and might take McCoy in the later rounds, especially if they pass on Bradford.
McCoy clearly is looking forward to playing again.
"When you have something taken away from you, like we did with the national championship, it makes you work that much harder to be your best," McCoy said. "I can't wait to see where I end up."
