    PROS: Has prior experience at a multitude of positions. Experienced reps at defensive tackle and defensive end from the stand up positions. There are small glimpses of where he was asked to drop into coverage, where he looked comfortable when asked to zone drop into the flat areas along the boundary or short side of the field. Lengthy arms that allow him to extend well beyond his body. Frequently capable of using his far arm to set a firm edge with violent strikes into the exterior framework of blockers. Consistently disruptive when he’s able to keep blockers free of his frame and actually use his limbs to his advantage. Coe is still figuring out how to exactly use his arms/hands frequently though.

    CONS: Natural instinct to only attack the midline and strictly bull rush blockers because it has regularly worked for him. Diversifying his repertoire of moves from the stand up position and along the interior will be needed in order to be counted on as a reliable pass rushing threat. Continuing to develop his arsenal of moves is a factor that could come over time as he settles into a distinct position. 

    When gaining ground up the field and forced to flatten at the apex of his rushes, he struggles to lower his center of gravity, dip his hips, and immediately flatten to the QB. There are extra steps necessary in order to perform each step of this sequence, which have led many to believe as to why he transitioned to the interior where this flaw is much less of a concern.
