Player Overview

It's impossible to replace the speed of Phillip Dorsett in Miami's offense, but Coley has speed that comes close with 40-yard dash times in the 4.3 range. In four starts in 2014, he tallied 23 catches, but managed only 184 yards receiving (8.0 average) and zero touchdowns as his all-purpose yardage fell from 1,461 as a freshman to only 860 in '14.

With Miami's top three receivers no longer on the roster, sophomore quarterback Brad Kaaya and the Hurricanes need Coley to take his game to the next level in 2015.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He uses long, galloping strides to accelerate to top speed quickly, making him a threat on throws in the flat and near the line of scrimmage to give him a chance to make plays after the catch. Coley also shows off his vision and wheels on special teams as a kick and punt returner.

WEAKNESSES: While his highlight plays are impressive, Coley needs to develop the timing and chemistry in his routes to create separation and prove to be more than just a slot option.

IN OUR VIEW: Like former teammate Phillip Dorsett (Indianapolis Colts' first round pick in 2015), Coley is a speed demon who projects best as a vertical threat and returner at the next level. The junior possesses a lanky frame (especially in his lower body) that could lead to concerns about his durability and he isn't the most natural hands-catcher. However, Coley tracks the ball well over his shoulder, shows patience and vision to set up his blocks and accelerates smoothly.
