Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned a starting job in 2014 due to injury after walking onto the team the year before. Posted a career-high 56 tackles that season before being limited to four games during an injury-riddled 2015 campaign. Combined for 55 tackles, one interception and three pass breakups the past two seasons.
Pos: 
Nice-sized corner with athletic limitations. Stays with assignments, displays good route recognition in zone coverage and competes to defend the pass. Gives effort defending the run and sells out to make tackles.
Neg: 
Not quick flipping his hips or smooth transitioning off the line. Gets tall in his backpedal. Lacks an explosive closing burst.
Analysis: 
Coleman is a size prospect with limited speed and athleticism, but he plays with a special-teams mentality and could line up in a zone system.
