John McCargo (born August 19, 1983 in Drakes Branch, Virginia) is an American football defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bills 26th overall of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at North Carolina State.


Professional career


Buffalo Bills

Many draft experts considered McCargo a late-2nd or early-3rd round pick before the 2006 NFL Draft. Because of this, many people were shocked when the Bills traded up to select him 26th overall.

McCargo spent most of the 2006 season on injured reserve. He passed out at training camp his rookie season, mainly because he had to run difficult drills in hot weather at his 300-pound frame. He was the second string defensive tackle behind Larry Tripplett in 2007,[1] and played in all 16 games.

On October 14, 2008, McCargo was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. The trade was voided and he was returned to the Bills the following day after McCargo failed his physical.
