Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JUSTIN COLEMAN: Tennessee, 5105 185 4.53. Three-year starter from Brunswick, GA. He was shifted to the nickel role in 2014 because the Tennessee coaching staff wanted to take advantage of his physical play and tackling ability. He is fast, explosive, and strong. At the East-West Shrine game, multiple receivers said he was the top cornerback there. His talent is undeniable. Has all the tools and exceptionally quick feet. Mechanics are inconsistent and he has not yet figured out how to read the action and anticipate routes and throws. Consistently aggressive and angry style of play. Shows no hesitation when going at the action whether he is defending the run or pass. Good form tackler as well. Explosive athlete. Has the speed to recover if he is initially beat. Can hang with speed downfield. Good eye-hand coordination enables him to make plays on the ball without too much contact with the receiver. Has loose hips to turn and run. Gets too high in his back pedal at times. Doesn’t anticipate, inconsistent to read the action around him. Dropped too many interceptions. Prone to penalties when facing off with the better receivers. 2014 stats: 42 T, 4 INT, 5 PBU. BTR:left 4.57, right 4.50. OSR:8/31. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 3/8, VJ-37.5, SS-3.98).
