    Don’t dislike him, but seems like a reach with inflated numbers based on the system he was in. If we had a full compliment of picks I’d be happier about it. Meh...

    The last two selections could have been made after trading down. Patriots just traded down with the Browns. Texans could have done that.

    If he can actually be a slot receiver then I’ll love this pick. Don’t know enough to have an opinion, but I do know this team desperately needs a slot receiver and needs to get better at returns

    Why can’t we ever trade down for these reaches? I don’t get it. Don’t dislike the player, just the value.

    Confirmed. Wes Welker made this pick. ;)



    ESPN: Coutee is a smooth athlete with explosive speed who can take the top off the defense. His ball skills are above average, he shows good focus in traffic and grades out as a starting kick returner who could develop into a sub-package slot receiver.

    Rotoworld: Texans selected Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee with the No. 103 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Coutee (5’10/181) turned pro after only three years as a Red Raider, compiling a 159/2,424/15.2/17 career stat line as a vertical slot receiver. PFF College credited Coutee with 37.9% of his 2017 receiving yards on passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield and the second-highest passer rating when targeted among draft-eligible receivers. Coutee ran 4.43 at the Combine but struggled in other drills, managing 26th-percentile SPARQ results. Fast but rail thin, Coutee’s ticket may be as a Taylor Gabriel-style situational deep threat with kick return value.

    CBS Sports: (B) Downfield threat for Watson. Good after the catch. Lacks size and strength. Could struggle to beat press coverage. | Agility-based slot wideout who's quicker than fast but possesses quality long speed. Adequate elusiveness and balance in the open field for a receiver at his smaller size. Plus return skills. Niche offensive weapon.

    SI: Keke Coutee | WR | TEXAS TECH
    Scouting Report: Coutee is undersized, but he’s quick and fast—a handful to mirror underneath with the long speed to get on top of a defense. He’s slippery after the catch, with a low center of gravity and enough creativity to break free in space. His catch radius is small and he ran a limited route tree (often out of the slot, avoiding press coverage) in Tech’s Air Raid. But the upside if there for Coutee to become one of the better slot receivers in the NFL, and he offers value as a return specialist in the short-term.

    This kid is electric. Like this pick. Im friends of the family and they are ecstatic. They will likely convert to the good side from that other team.
