PROS: Appealing blend of size and speed. Showcases good deception as a route runner where he works to stack and create leverage. Impressive quickness into his route stems from his release. Illustrates good body control and concentration at the catch point. Can climb the ladder and go get it. Does well to extend his catch radius vertically. Hands and ball skills appear natural with the ability to track and pluck the football outside of his frame. Not electric but he’s decisive working post-catch to find additional yardage. Has a monster game against Virginia Tech.
CONS: Has a big transition to the NFL. So many of his contested grabs will be far more heavily challenged at the next level. Can be too patient and needs to “go get it”. Lacks a true late gear to the football. Was only an average separator at the FCS level. Agility, elusiveness and separation quickness don’t impress. Has to become more physical and improve his functional strength.
BEST TRAIT - Body Control
WORST TRAIT - Separation Quickness
RED FLAGS - None
Rhode Island wide receiver Isaiah Coulter made his share of big plays in college and looked like he belonged with the best of the best giving his performance against Virginia Tech. Coulter brings exciting hands, ball skills and body control to the table. With that said, Coulter has a big adjustment ahead of him to the next level and his lack of separation quickness and modest functional strength will present new challenges to be productive. Coulter has developmental appeal but he has an uphill climb ahead of him.
