Analysis

Strengths

Saw playing time all four years at Duke with three years as starter. Adequate run blocker. Keeps legs churning and works to establish and reestablish hands when necessary. Will quick-set speed rushers, taking sting from their upfield burst. Gritty blocker who plays with toughness and takes it to the whistle.

Weaknesses

Not so much a kick-slide as a kick-plod. NFL speed likely too much for him. Plays too straight-legged and opens himself to bull rush. His anchor won't always drop against speed-to-power rushers. Hands get way too wide as a run blocker. Plays with slow, high punch that is too easily defeated and countered by quality pass rushers. Unable to make or sustain blocks in space.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Phone-booth run blocker who shows an understanding of angles and footwork to overcome his slow feet and get to the edge against speed. Cofield lacks the athleticism and anchor that NFL teams are looking for from a starting offensive lineman and Cofield's ceiling might be as an NFL backup on the right side.
