there’s value already to Mr Coe. When I read the name out loud it sounded like nitco, which then sent me reeling back the years to the 50’s and the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still. Klatu Varada Nikto prevented Gort from destroying earth. Whew!! Remember that experience well.
I thought Nick Coe was a country rock star or something, but I was thinking about David Allan Coe.
I had to look him up. He's from Auburn, and we signed him last September. He's 6'5" @ 291# and 23 years old. Auburn's bio says he can play any position on the DL and even OLB.
Despite being considered a mid-to-late round prospect for the 2020 NFL Draft, Nick Coe went undrafted. Nick was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent on May 5, 2020. Nick was waived by the Patriots on August 13, 2020.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Coe
PS player maybe. He should have stayed at Auburn for another year.

Defensive lineman good size and strength, but finding a positional fit could be a little bit challenging. Coe has the body type and natural power of an odd-front defensive end, but he needs to play with better anchor and feel for the blocking scheme in front of him. He flashes rugged tendencies, but needs to embrace that part of his game at the point of attack as he lacks the quickness and twitch to be a consistent playmaker or pass rusher. If a team can pair better technique and body control with his traits, he might develop into an NFL backup along the interior.
Good frame thickness with proportional mass
Wham blocks crash into him with very little effect
Power can be too much for tight ends working across from him
Experience at a variety of alignments in both odd and even fronts
Has played standing and with a hand down
Upper body strength to press and separate from blocks when setting edge
Strong hands to open edges and work around them
Hard hitting behind heavy pads
Adequate arm chop to soften the edge
Plays with narrow base that limits his anchor
Gets moved around by guards at point of attack
Below average instincts and footwork
Ends up on the ground way too often
Hasn't learned to uses his size to play with consistent force
Get-off is non-threatening as outside or inside rusher
Plays with heavy feet when plays extend outside pocket
Pass rush lacks desired coordination and fluidity
Poor steering wheel to change direction in pocket pursuit
