BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past three seasons awarded All-Conference honors after his senior and junior campaigns. Senior-year totals included a career-high 139/8.5/2.5. Posted 98 tackles as a junior after 117 during his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Overachieving inside linebacker with a good head for the ball in run defense. Instinctive, quickly diagnoses the action, and explodes up the field. Fills gaps in run defense. Works hard and flies around the ball.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the ability to quickly change direction, struggles moving in reverse, and has tackles broken. Undersized and gets caught in the trash. Easily blocked from the action.
ANALYSIS: Coleman is a two-down run-defending linebacker who.s best suited for a system that allows him to freely flow to the action.
