Devon Auriemma: Isaiah Coulter, WR Rhode Island
“In his junior year at Rhode Island, Isaiah Coulter put up 1,039 yards on 72 catches, with eight touchdowns. The 6’2 receiver ran a 4.45 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. He finished in the middle of the pact in most of the drills but finished in the top 10 for 40-time.
Coulter has good size and speed which he uses to make downfield catches. When watching his film, you will notice how he uses these to his advantage. He makes some great back shoulder grabs, adjusts well to the ball in the air and is great in the open field.
He has great sideline awareness, can catch the ball at its high point and make some contested grabs. One of his best games of the year came against Virginia Tech where he put up 152 yards on nine catches. Seeing him play well against an ACC team makes me confident that he can produce at the next level if he is able to clean up his game a little.
Like Duvernay, Coulter was able to create space mainly using his speed, but he sometimes struggles to get separation and needs to improve his route running. While he is 6’2, he has a small frame which could be a durability issue at the next level. I also would’ve liked to see him be more physical and aggressive against his opponents especially during contested catches.
Coulter has great upside and is a fun player to watch on film. He brings great size and speed to the position, but needs to be more physical and aggressive, as well as improve his route running. He will likely be a day three selection but could provide great value with his potential.”
