Scouting the Big 12: Texas Tech

The Red Raiders wide open offense resulted in the 12th pick of the draft last April when the Kansas City Chiefs made the move to select quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Next April it will be Mahomes’ favorite targets who sit on top of the Red Raiders draft board.

Junior Keke Coutee is a smallish yet swift receiver with home run hitting ability. He’ll stretch the defense vertically and consistently makes the big catch in the deep field. Coutee also comes with return skills, which will enhance his value.

Senior Dylan Cantrell is highly rated by scouts and a perfect complement to Coutee in the Red Raiders offense.

Cantrell is a big-bodied receiver who measures 6-foot-2, tips the scale around 225 pounds and plays big football. He’s a terrific possession receiver who could line up as a No. 4 at the next level.

Were it not for his transfer to LSU, Jonathan Giles would’ve been the top rated Texas Tech prospect on our list. He’s an explosive wideout with reliable hands and projects to the slot at the next level.
