Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: TE Chase Coffman could be the guy, if only he stays healthy. There are no doubts about his pass-catching skills, but hardly anyone has seen him as a blocker because he was in a spread offense at Missouri, which is why he dropped to the late third round. If he can come in and grasp those skills, he provides Carson Palmer with yet another solid receiving option. The Bengals had success last year with another third-round compensatory pick when they selected wide receiver Andre Caldwell. A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 3/98 -- Chase Coffman, TE, 6-6, 244, Missouri...Coffman was regarded as one of the best tight ends in the country. He had 90 receptions for 987 yards and 10 touchdowns last year. The biggest area that needs development is his blocking, skills that are lacking since he played in a spread offense during four years at Mizzou. Coffman though acknowledges those shortcomings and said he is ready to come in and show he can be a blocker. - by The Sports Xchange
