Chase Coffman Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'6 - 245 lbs.|
2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Chase Coffman, TE, Missouri
Since the day he stepped foot on Missouri's campus, Chase Coffman was too dangerous of a pass catching threat to leave on the bench. Even on a team with Martin Rucker, the tight end caught 47 passes for 503 yards and four touchdowns his first year on the field. As a sophomore he tallied 58 catches for 638 yards and nine touchdowns. All of those numbers are Missouri records for tight ends. He came close to breaking his own records as a junior and is on pace to surpass them four games into his senior campaign. The 6-6, 245 pound Peculiar, Missouri product will finish up his collegiate career as one of the most productive receiving tight ends in NCAA history. His size and speed have created a ton of mismatches for the Tiger offense and he will continue to do that at the next level. He is a favorite to win the John Mackey Tight End Award this year and that is saying a lot since there are a handful of very good tight ends wrapping up their collegiate careers in 2008. But it is also that talented group of tight ends that could sink Coffman down some draft boards. If he has an underwhelming finish in Columbia, Missouri or fails to live up to expectations at the combine, there are plenty of other tight ends who are ready to move up. 10/16 Update: Coffman's numbers have not been disappointing so far in 2008. In just six games, the tight end has an amazing 44 catches for 554 yards. His touchdown numbers are a little lower than usual, but there is plenty of time left for Coffman to shatter his own receiving record for a tight end at Missouri. 1/14 Update: Coffman ended the 2008 campaign with 90 receptions for 987 yards and 10 touchdowns. Missouri had high expectations heading into the season, but by mid-October their national title hopes were long gone. That moved the nation's attention away from Missouri and to the Big 12 South. Thus, Coffman's senior season ended quietly, but he still is one of the best receiving tight ends to ever play college football and he should be a first day selection.
