Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Coale is a big, physical receiver built in the mold of the Cowboys' traditional wideouts. He will battle for a roster spot as a fourth or fifth receiver, but will need to provide special teams contributions to make the weekly active roster.

  • 6'0" Height
  • 30 5/8" Arm Length
  • 201LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/8" Hands

Overview

Coale, a four-year starter, is served well by his thickness and balance when working out of the slot. He is savvy and can use his explosiveness in short areas to get open in zones. He thrives on making one player miss and getting upfield. He has the skillset to succeed at the next level and stands to be a fifth-round pick. He is a mature player who can step in right away, and will be attractive to teams looking for receiver depth.

Analysis

Strengths

Coale understands how to be a possession receiver and work across the field to gain separation when working against man or zone coverage. He is quick with his feet, both off the line of scrimmage and in his routes, and can gain a step to get open. He also understands how to throttle his routes down when working against zone coverage. He is heady enough to make an immediate impact in the NFL. While he will be productive underneath, he has the speed to stretch the field and the physicality and fearlessness 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 to do 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 won't be very explosive at the next level.
