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.

Do You Think the Eagles Will Draft Coffman?

    Not Very Physical????

    Not Flashy????

    If the Eagles (or any other team) land Coffman, they will have a GEM.

    As far as blocking, which tight ends are required to do in the NFL, he isn’t physical. Listen to Tom Heckert, he agrees.

    As compared to Cook, Nelson and Ingram, he’s not flashy. That’s not to say he isn’t good.

    It’s all a crapshoot my friend. Coffman might be the next Jason Witten or he could be another Joe Klopfenstein. Time will tell.

    Coffman … not physical…lmao, the only reason you haven’t see what he can do blocking is because Missouri played the spread offense. But he can hit, just ask any player that he hit in the last four years. Blocking will come and there is not a better catching tight end in the draft. If the eagles don’t draft him they will wish they had. But since I know him personally, I sure hope they don’t would hate to see him waste his talents with the eagles!

    Well, since you “know” Coffman personally, Leon, you can’t very well offer an objective opinion on him, can you? I’m glad NFL GMs aren’t calling you for a scouting report. They might be foolish enough to grab him in the Top 10 picks. For the record, I like the guy. We shall see where he ends up.

    I know him as well and have watched him since he was a boy develope as a TE. He and my son, Mark Ellis, now NCAA Wrestling Hvwy champion for 2009 were coached by Chase’s Father, Paul Coffman. Mental toughness – he wrote the book and imparted to many young men, along with another of which is projected to go in the top 10 on Saturday. No, Chase along with his two younger brothers, who play Football will make their mark in the history books of Football. They love the game and train like no others.
