Danny Coale is the glue-like special player from this draft. I love the way this guy plays the game, he's quick off the line and he's competitive. He gets the highest grade I can give in both categories. He catches the ball in traffic; he's tough and he has better than average speed.

Coale certainly looks like Welker on tape; Cowboys fans will have to hope he can produce like him too.
