On the Hoof: Has good height, long arms and a very lean yet well-put-together overall body structure. He is built similar to Texas freshman receiver Greg Timmons.
Needs Improvement: Needs to use his hands more and catch the ball at its highest point. Coxson also could add more strength, which should help him break tackles at the next level. Keeping focused and involved through the whole game and improving his run blocking are two other areas he needs to improve.
Most Impressive: Coxson does a nice job of using his body to shield of defenders from the ball. Has the combination of size and speed that will allow him to play slot or wide receiver at the next level.
Conclusion: Wide receiver is possibly the easiest position to learn and get playing time early. If Coxson comes to camp in football shape and is willing to give 110 percent during practice and position meetings, he could see some playing time as a freshman. He is still very raw and most likely will not get into the two deep until his second year on campus.
