Keke Coutee Draft Profile

Keke Coutee

Strengths:

  • Speed
  • Deep threat
  • Creates separation
  • Finds soft spots in zone coverage
  • Solid hands
  • Return skills

Analysis: Key’vantanie “Keke” Coutee possesses tremendous deep speed and can run past the fastest of defensive backs. He warrants additional attention from safeties no matter where he lines up. Explosive speed can turn slants and crossing routes into long touchdowns. Separation comes easily for him. Could thrive with NFL option routes. Carries athletic ability into body adjustments and catches. He is great at finding the soft spots in zone coverage and can sink into them with ease. Shows some focus to secure the throw when working middle. Has ability to add impact as returner. Averaged 31.5 yards per kick return in limited 2017 role with one touchdown.

Weaknesses:

  • Small, thin frame
  • Play strength
  • Struggles against press and physical corners
  • Route tree
  • Not a tough runner
  • Contested catches

Analysis: Keke Coutee has a thin frame that may not be able to add too much mass to without losing his speed. Play strength is severely lacking. He was not asked to run the entire route tree at Texas Tech, rather focusing on short to intermediate routes like slants and hitches. Scouts question if he is a “scheme receiver” questioning whether he can successfully make the jump to the NFL. Coutee struggles to play through contact and keep his route on schedule. He cannot beat press coverage and can be re-routed by physical corners anytime during his route. Not very tough. Disappointing with willingness to give in to tacklers on his runs after the catch. Contested catches leave a lot to be desired.

Size: 5’11 180lbs

Draft Rank: Outside Top 10

NFL Comparison: Tavon Austin

Draft Projection: Round 4-5
