Coffman is not
the quickest or most elusive guy at TE. He has adequate speed
and agility that allows him to run good solid routes. Coffman
gets off the ball quickly enough to be able to play in a stand up role
in the slot. He shows good body control and coordination which
allows him to make difficult catches in traffic and adjust to off target
passes quickly. Coffman's footwork is inconsistent and could
use some work in that area to improve his route running.
If there is one
major asset of Coffman it is his toughness and desire to win.
He is a fierce competitor and shows his toughness on every play.
Coffman blocks hard and physical and does a great job using his strength
and big body to ward off defenders while making the catch. His
production has been solid but not great because of having to split time
for 3 years. He is a consistent player when it comes to effort
but a little bit sporadic with production. Coffman is a consummate
team player who has no problem teaching and mentoring younger players.
Coffman is an
intelligent player who has definitely learned a tremendous amount from
his NFL TE Dad. He understands the zone and finds holes very easily
and makes himself a big target for the QB. His concentration rarely
waivers and he learns from what the defense is trying to do so that
he can exploit their vulnerabilities.
Coffman has excellent
size for an NFL TE. He has been banged up a bit over the past
couple of seasons but has shown good durability, resiliency, and toughness
to try and play through the pain. Coffman is an explosive player
who explodes off the ball, into blocks, and into traffic for great catches.
He plays extremely strong and does not shy away from any type of contact.

Coffman is a big physical player
who does a very good job as a blocker. He has the versatility
to play TE from a stand up position, on the line, as an H-Back, or moving
in motion. Coffman has outstanding hands and uses them well extended
from his body.
downside is his lack of speed and quickness. He struggles with
straight line speed and his lack of quickness makes his route running
a bit inconsistent.
Coffman is a solid prospect at
TE. He has a strong work ethic and comes from a good football
background. Coffman is a very good blocker in space and on the
line. He has outstanding hands, catches the ball in traffic very
well, and does a good job of recognizing the zone coverage and finding
the holes underneath. Coffman's lack of speed and quickness
is a bit of a concern considering it makes him a fairly one dimensional
receiver as he is not going to beat anyone downfield. Also, he
has not been able to really work out for scouts as he is still battling
injuries and that is a bit of a concern as well. All in all I
believe Coffman can be a very productive TE and can be that possession
type guy who makes QB's feel a bit more at ease on 3rd
Downs and in the Red Zone.
