Overview

Coale has been a starter for four consecutive years at receiver for the Hokies. He has thickness and balance for the position which serves him well when working out of the slot. He is a savvy player who has explosion in short areas to get open in zones, and gets production by making one player miss and getting upfield. He has the skill set to succeed at the next level and stands to be a fifth-round pick to a team looking for receiver depth and the type of mature player who can step in and play right away.

Analysis

Strengths

Coale understands how to be a possession receiver and work across the field to gain separation when working against man or zone. He is quick with his feet both off the line of scrimmage and in his routes to gain a step to get open, and understands how to throttle his routes down when working against zone coverage. He is the type of heady player who could play right away at the next level. While he will be productive underneath, he has the speed to stretch the field and runs routes that will get him open and gain yardage at the next level. He is physical and not afraid to go across the middle.

Weaknesses

Coale can struggle against bigger corners if he doesn't separate immediately off the line. He also is limited with the ball in his hands after the catch, and generally just tries what he can. He isn't a reliable blocker outside and struggles to sustain and stay in front of his man when working in the run game. He will be serviceable, but likely a non-explosive player at the next level.
