Auburn redshirt junior WR Sammie Coates surprised onlookers by reporting to the Senior Bowl up 10 pounds from his collegiate weight, reported The Guardian's Matt Rybaltowski.
"Coates might not be a carbon copy of Terrell Owens, but the added muscle could help his cause in the coming months," Rybaltowski wrote. "On Saturday, he appeared to make a spectacular touchdown catch on a back-shoulder fade from Blake Sims, but was unable to get his second foot down in the left corner of the end zone. Coates’ stature and skill set are similar to that of Dwayne Bowe, a 2010 Pro Bowl wideout with the Chiefs. With Bowe on the wrong side of 30 and the Chiefs struggling at receiver, Coates could be a nice fit in Kansas City." The 6-foot-2, 213-pound wideout has "[Terrell Owens'] body, [Odell Beckham Jr.'s] burst and [Darrius Heyward-Bey's] hands," NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah wrote recently. Colleague Lance Zierlein added that Coates has "some of the worst hands" he's seen on tape. Jan 26 - 10:37 PM
