2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Damonte Coxie, WR, University of Memphis

Damonte Coxie Memphis
Memphis wide receiver Damonte Coxie makes some ridiculous catches, and I am a huge fan of this kid. I was talking to a scout last night who told me he is a top 5 wide receiver in this draft class.

Do you want to watch film on a filthy and nasty wide receiver? If you love the game you have to watch film on Damonte Coxie, the star wide receiver from the University of Memphis. The Reserve, Louisiana native has been one of the most productive wide receivers in college football over the past three years.

Coxie had offers from Alabama and LSU, but that was before he suffered a knee injury in track. Coxie would eventually land on the Tigers, not LSU though, the Memphis Tigers. He would have to sit behind Anthony Miller of the Chicago Bears and learn from him. After Miller graduated though, Coxie rose onto the scene.

Coxie is just 69 receptions away and around 700 yards away from breaking Anthony Miller’s records. If Coxie can come down with 18 touchdowns this year, he would break his record for touchdowns as well.

In 2017, Coxie would haul in just 21 passes for 323 yards and score three touchdowns. Coxie has been putting up numbers for years though, and the most impressive number in his freshman year was the fact that he averaged 15.4 yards per reception.

In 2018, Coxie hauled in 72 balls and eclipsed the 1000 yard mark. He finished the season with 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns. He is a deep threat and a big body receiver that is a long strider. He is consistent though and you cannot take that away from him.

Last year, Coxie did not slow down. He actually got better. He caught 76 passes for 1,276 yards and added 9 more touchdowns to his total.

In his career he is averaging 16 yards per reception, which is pretty darn impressive. Coxie has also played in 41 games in his career.

I am expecting two of Anthony Miller’s records to be broken in 2020. Coxie will attract NFL teams, because of his size an big play abilities.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

As you know we follow tons of small school football players at NFL Draft Diamonds and Memphis is not what you would call small by any means, but when a scout tells you about a player you look into him. Damonte Coxie has some sick film. I love the way he uses his body to position himself. He is a big bodied wide out who strides down the field when he catches the ball. I think we have a top 100 player in Coxie, he is a dawg from the boot, and LSU dropped the ball on him. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
