Kezarrick Montines McCorvey[1] is a former professional American football player who played wide receiver for three seasons for the Detroit Lions (1995–1997). Although a standout wideout in college for the FSU Seminoles, Mccorvery was used primarily on special teams in the NFL and amassed only 2 career receptions (both in 1997). Kez McCorvey caught 192 passes from 1991–94, which is the second highest total in school history. His junior season in 1993 was particularly memorable for FSU fans as it culminated in the school's first national title. His total of 74 receptions that year was the second highest in FSU history. A two-time ACC selection, he was named to a pair of All-America teams as a senior and was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Trophy as a senior in 1994. He had at least one reception in each of the last 32 games of his FSU career.

After graduating with a degree in sociology, he started his pro football career in 1995 when he was drafted by the Detroit Lions (Round Five, pick #156). He was inducted into Florida State's Hall of Fame in 2005.[2]

Since 2012, McCorvey is the receivers coach for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
