ArmyBengal Posted July 7, 2009 Report Share Posted July 7, 2009 So I was looking at videos of our draft picks and came across this one of Coffman./>http://sports.yahoo.com/video/player/nfl/NFL_Draft_Tight_Ends/12935999#nfl/NFL_Draft_Tight_Ends/12935999I actually wanted the Bengals to draft him and had the Bengals taking him right where they did in the 3rd. While he's not know to be a devasting blocker, he has the ability to catch and has the build to be a HUGE redzone target and the guy to go to in order to pick up the 3rd down and move the chains. In watching the video, he looks absolutely HUGE out there on the field. I was just wondering everyone elses opinion when considering we have Utecht, Kelly, Coats, and another rookie. I think Coats gets shown the door as there are better TE's and FB's on the team now and I just don't know how he fits. The rookie goes to the practice squad without any thought, expecially with them letting Matt Sherry go already. I can't remember how many TE's the Bengals carried last year, but I think it should be a good battle between Kelly, who is a good all around TE with great blocking skills, Utecht, who is coming off an injury and had great success in Indy's offense, and the rookie Coffman, who had more TD's than any TE in the nation last year and has put up STUPID numbers in his college career.Tight ends might not be the sexy topic to discuss, but it's one of those areas that should prove interesting to watch and this may be the year we see a new approach to the TE position from Brat. I think that will be the key. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
