Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score grades Auburn WR Sammie Coates as the No. 4 receiver.
"When Coates was a sophomore, 2.5 percent of Auburn's pass attempts were touchdown passes to Coates," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "Similarly, he dominated his team's passing attack as a junior, gaining 3.16 yards per team attempt. He also averaged a superb 21.4 yards per catch and is entering the draft as an underclassman. However, while Coates' rate stats were good, his total stats were not that impressive, with only 741 receiving yards and four touchdowns as a junior." The system offered a pair of interesting historical comparisons in Demaryius Thomas and Stephen Hill. "Coates' numbers may simply be a function of an offense where a few deep passes to Coates served as a change of pace, rather than a true reflection of Coates' ability as a receiver," Forster wrote. "In that regard, Coates is hauntingly similar to a huge bust that Playmaker Score loved: Stephen Hill. Coates' scouting report is similar." Mar 30 - 12:54 AM
