Josiah Coatney is a player who can get the job done in rush defense situations. At 6’4″, 325 pounds, this monster can get through the offensive line quickly and efficiently. I also stated the Colts should go after D.J Reader, another run stuffer, but why spend the money when you can develop a player like that? For all three of his seasons at Ole Miss, he had over 20 run-stops with is top 3 in the NCAA over that time period.
Coatney is a player who needs some help and time to develop, but it’s worth the 5th round pick and the possible few year’s developmental processes.
- Very fast off the ball
- Consistent playmaking ability
