Roy Hall

Roy Hall, WR, OSU
(HT: 6'2 / WT: 229 / 40: 4.46)

    Compares To: Kris Wilson, Kansas City Chiefs … Hall might be a better fit at H-back, where a team can line him wide because of his speed, in motion because of the mismatches he would cause against smaller defensive backs or in the backfield, where he is a promising blocker … He does take plays off and concentration issues led to several costly drops over the years, but with his body frame and quickness, he is worth a long look in training camp and could be a nice late draft pick-up.

    Could project to and get looks as a tight end or H-Back at the next level...He was not invited to the Combine but tore it up at his Pro Day...Someone just may take a flyer on him based on potential alone...Intriguing and a classic workout warrior.

Michael Coe

With the 173rd overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts take:

Michael Coe, CB, Alabama St.
(HT: 6'0" / WT: 190 / 40: 4.53)

Analysis:

    Compares To: Cory Webster, New York Giants -- Like Webster, press coverage might not suit Coe well. He has good ball skills and takes decent angles at times, but despite his speed he is not a quick twitch-type. He has some value as an emergency punt returner, but did have fumbling issues there in the past. Some experts say Coe can handle press coverage, but he is not as active shooting his hands as one would like. With his functional route awareness and ability to keep plays in front of him, Coe might bring better value as a free safety. The talent is certainly there, but he failed to impress against top-level competition at Arkansas and only one of the receivers he faced in 2006 (Henry Tolbert -- Grambling, who missed most of the game with an injury) is considered even a camp prospect at the next level, making it hard to judge his senior performance against such inferior competition.

    Transferred from Arkansas so he could play under his father at Alabama State, Coe made big strides last season. A solid special-teams player, he offers possibilities as a nickel or dime back in either a zone system or as a press corner.

    An Arkansas transfer that played up to his physical tools as a senior under the guidance of his father and head coach. He was used at both corner and free safety depending on an opponent's offensive scheme. He has good size, can turn and run with most receivers and plays with a physical flair to his game. He showed up well in his postseason games. He has man coverage ability mixed with very good ball skills. He's a good wrap-up tackler and ran in the mid-4.4 range at his workouts. He's a coach's kid who works hard, which should help him play early in his career.

    Played most of his career at Arkansas but transferred to Alabama St. to play for his for his father, head coach Charles Coe...Showed well at the East-West Shrine and the Senior Bowl as well after being brought in as an injury replacement...A guy who quietly emerged as one of the top sleeper prospects in this draft...Has all of the physical tools and could end up going quite a bit higher than most think.
