A chiseled tweener prospect, Coleman was a straight-linish, complementary college running back, though his best chance in the pros will be to bulk up into an athletic fullback. Has speed in the 4.5s at 230 pounds and runs with low pads, showing a nose for the endzone. Also was a special-teams standout for the Bruins. Mature, mentally tough, character player who persevered through deafness and is the type you root for.
