Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about TEVIN COLEMAN: Indiana, 5113 206 4.50. Junior entry from Tinley Park, IL. Two-year starter. Finished as the number two overall rusher in 2014 with 2,036 yards. Only the 18th player in history to breach the 2,000 yard mark and he did so with very little help around him. His record setting 2014 season includes a 300+ yard game against Rutgers. Coleman has ideal size and speed for the position. At his best in a north/south type running scheme where he can use his downhill speed and power. Some of the finer, more detailed aspects to the position need to be worked on. His routes out of the backfield, pass blocking technique, and ball security are raw around the edges. However when it comes to talent and big play ability, Coleman has the potential to be a star at the next level. Strong between the tackles, fast in the open field. Shows the power and leg drive to push tacklers back, consistently falling forward. Several big runs displaying the ability to run away from defensive backs. Sudden to and through the hole. Cutback runner who shows good vision and the explosion to get through the open crease. Quality hands as a receiver with a smooth catching motion. Looks the ball in and tucks it before running upfield. Upright running style leaves his legs almost completely exposed. Suffered an ankle injury that forced him to miss three games in 2013. Does not have the late wiggle to miss contact from defenders, takes a lot of hits. Can be a better blocker in blitz pickup. 2014 stats: 2036 yds, 7.5 ypc, 15 TD, 25 rec, 141 yds. Medical exclusion at Combine, right foot turf toe. Second/third round. (A-32, H-8 5/8, BP-22, SS-DNP).
