Draft Profiles: Chase Coffman

chasecoffmanChase Coffman: TE, Senior – Missouri

Height/Weight: 6’5″, 245 lbs

Career stats: 247 catches, 2,659 yards, 10.8 ypc, 30 TDs

40-Time: 4.85

Coffman’s career at Mizzou can best be characterized as consistently good. Despite a lingering turf toe injury his senior season, he was still the nation’s top tight end with 90 catches for 987 yards and 10 touchdowns. His route running and ball skills are second to none at the position. Can operate split wide or over the middle. Experienced and smart. Is not very fast and was the product of a spread attack. Surgery to implant a screw in his foot limited his pre-draft workouts.

Best attribute: Route running and a red zone threat.

Weakness: Poor blocker, not very physical.

Reminds me of: Heath Miller. Not flashy, but very effective.

Why he should be an Eagle: They need a tight end who can help in the red zone. Is very intelligent, so he could contribute right away. Is he too similar to Brent Celek? A faster, more athletic tight end might be desired. Apparently, has worked out privately for the Eagles.
