Coyle had a breakout year in his first season as the “3-back” in new offensive coordinator Mike Norvell’s offense, setting a new mark for Arizona State tight ends with 57 catches in a single season. He also led the team with 696 receiving yards and caught five touchdown passes. A moveable piece in the Sun Devils offense, Coyle lines up as an H-back, in the slot, and in a traditional inline position. He exhibits excellent quickness in and out of his breaks, making him a mismatch for opposing linebackers, and demonstrates a great feel for finding soft spots in coverage. His soft, reliable hands and ability to make defenders miss after the catch make him a valuable weapon in the passing game. Undersized, but reportedly heavier now than when he weighed in at spring camp, Coyle is a well-rounded H-back prospect who also contributes as a blocker for Arizona State’s talented backfield. -Jeremy Hyde, 07/12
