Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Adequate drop, rebounding nicely at top. Tall in the pocket, consistently looks off defenders and snaps to final read to make throw. Flashes the ability to get through three reads. Can climb the pocket. Above the line mechanically, with consistent plant foot and torquing through core with even shoulders. Flashes touch to throw receivers into space, including on Go routes. Understands placement and will attempt to protect receiver with throw. Adequate underneath velocity. When settled in clean pocket, above the line accuracy in short-to-intermediate areas to create YAC with placement. Adequate ability to throw on run. As a runner, dives forward. … Reads low-to-high and gets too complacent with first option, frequently taking checkdowns even in critical situations. Poor feel in the pocket, sliding into pressure. Average anticipation and will struggle to anticipate late defender movement. Slower release. Average arm strength, needing to adjust motion to throw deep, leading to inaccuracy. Accuracy gets spotty when unsettled or pushed off of spot, especially in Quick game. Lacks composure to improvise, letting eyes drop v pressure and failing to create. As a runner, won't break tackles or win footraces. Not a team captain.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
RS Senior who has started 41 of 48 career games, including all 13 in 2021 for an 11-2 record and 30-18 career. Three-starHS recruit who committed to Wisconsin and was a backup as a true freshman. In 2018, earned four starts as injury replacement. Took over as every game starter in 2019 and named All-Big Ten Honorable Mention. Missed 2020 season with injury and transferred to Notre Dame, starting every game of 2021, named All-Independent Second Team. Under HC Brian Kelly (12th season) and OC/QBs Coach Tommy Rees (2nd season), Coan leads a pro-style offense that incorporates many different concepts and finished #20 for both scoring and pass offense. Middling backup you can win with given protection and playmaking WRs. Clean passer who can mislead LBs and safeties from the pocket, snapping to an open man and using touch to lead him to space. An "if everything goes right" kind of player, suffering for accuracy and decisions under pressure while lacking the ability to create. Only a decent arm. Could surprise with the right staff and support.
