Player Overview

Coulter, originally from Brandywine, MD, played in all 11 games with the Rams his freshman year, making 4 starts and catching 18 passes for 212 yards and 1 TD. In 2018, he started all 11 games at receiver and was second on the team - to his cousin, Aaron Parker, also from Prince George’s County - collecting 42 catches for 604 yards and 3 TDs.

During his senior season, Coulter played in 12 games and made 11 starts at wide receiver, catching 72 passes for 1,039 yards and 8 TDs, good enough for a second team All CAA selection in 2019.

Strengths

  • Great ability to get vertical and make catches.
  • Good catch radius.
  • Has the speed to separate downfield.
  • Strong YAC ability.

Weaknesses

  • Played against lower level competition.
  • Needs to run tighter routes.
  • Has to be more physical with DBs.

Let’s See His Work

How He Would Fit

Coulter has the raw material to be a starting WR in the NFL, but he still needs work refining his route running and harnessing his quickness to best elude defenders. He will also need to exert more physicality in dealing with cornerbacks for contested balls in the pros in order to find success. As a late round pick, Coulter is a high ceiling/low floor option who could potentially pair well with the other young WRs on the Redskins’ roster.
