Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and Coker shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as he is taking the top off a defense
  • A major factor is his size, strength and explosive athleticism, but he also has a knack for tracking and high-pointing the ball.
  • Coker also proved to be a force in catch-and-run situations. A violent runner who transitions upfield quickly after the catch, he has the speed to pick up chunks of yardage once he’s broken the first tackle.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • Coker plays with a smoothness and balance, and he shows a knack for setting up defensive backs.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • His ability to track the ball is good enough, but Coker too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
  • He’ll have to develop a better feel for sitting down against zone coverage.
  • Coker seems comfortable in traffic to the point where he doesn’t make the effort to create separation.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
