CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "is better than expected in pass protection."
"An area that RB Tevin Coleman is better than expected is pass pro. Needs to improve his technique but squares up, extends to jolt and engage," Brugler tweeted. With Coleman's size, talent and ability to pass protect, he could be capable of being a three-down player at the next level. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Coleman recently rushed for 132 yards on 15 carries in Saturday's loss to Michigan State. Oct 20 - 3:38 PM

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 yards on 15 carries in Saturday's loss to Michigan State.

He also had two catches for six yards; believe it or not, that was more than half the school's receiving yard total. Coleman never had a chance, really. Indiana is down to No. 3 freshman QB Zander Diamont. Michigan State's talented defense didn't have to worry about getting gouged in the air (IU finished 5-for-16 for 11 yards) and keyed in on Coleman. Even so, the speedster finished with another 100-yard performance. He hasn't been held below 100 yards yet this season, though he was deprived of the end zone for the first time on Saturday.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman's pass-catching ability will increase his draft stock, writes NFL.com's Charles Davis.

Quick! Name the FBS' leading rusher. The location of this text probably gave away the answer, as it is indeed Coleman, who has 1,060 rushing yards, 14 more than Melvin Gordon. Darren McFadden's on-field doppelganger (upright style, great speed) also has 15 catches for 134 yards.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 219 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries in the school's 45-29 loss to Iowa.

We will continue to compare Coleman to Darren McFadden. The Indiana running back has a very linear running style and picks up yards in open space thanks to tremendous long speed. The question evaluators will ask is if he breaks first contact/make the first man miss consistently enough to be a foundation back.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz praised Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman earlier this week.

"He's really tough and hard-nosed," Ferentz told reporters. "He's fast; he's quick. If you look at the top four guys in the Big Ten right now, they're all clipping along pretty well and they're all pretty good backs." Coleman has put up mind-numbing numbers through five games, rushing for 841 yards and eight touchdowns on 105 carries (8.0 YPC). NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote about Coleman last month: "There is always a place in the NFL for a big running back capable of being a three-down player. Thus, scouts are excited about the potential of Coleman. ... Given how much evaluators value a 'complete' running back with a tough disposition, Coleman is a prospect to watch going forward."

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 150 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 49-24 victory over North Texas.

Included in that production was a 74-yard scamper, though Coleman's touchdown was of the one-yard variety. Coleman has put up mind-numbing numbers through five games, rushing for 841 yards and eight touchdowns on 105 carries (8.0 YPC). He hasn't been held below 122 rushing yards, and has added 13 catches for 127 yards. We think the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman looks like Darren McFadden's doppelganger on the field. If Coleman jumps to the pros early, expect him to go late-Day 2 or early-Day 3.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman is an intriguing prospect who must answer questions about his pass protection and durability, write ESPN Insider's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

Muench and Weidl also considered Arizona State's D.J. Foster, Boise State Jay Ajayi and Pitt's James Conner to close out their list of the draft's highest risers, but they settled on Coleman at No. 10. "Listed at 6-1 and 210 pounds, Coleman runs upright yet he's strong enough to pick up yards after contact and he falls forward at the end of runs," they wrote. "He's not a breakaway threat, either, but he's quick enough to turn the corner and fast enough to break longer runs when he gets a seam. Although his ability to hold up in pass pro needs to be investigated further, he can produce after the catch. As well as he's played, Coleman needs to stay healthy. He missed the second quarter of the Missouri game with an injury and underwent knee surgery after missing three games at the end of last year." The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman looks like Darren McFadden's doppelganger on the field, though he's more of a late-Day 2 or early-Day 3 prospect.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in the school's 37-15 loss to Maryland.

Coleman has produced a huge season, and from an aesthetic perspective he is very reminiscent of Darren McFadden. We will need to focus on his tackle breaking ability after facing stiff competition. He should be a third- to fifth-round selection.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "is building momentum" in the scouting community, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Most of the running back talk in the scouting community centers on four underclassmen: Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon, T.J. Yeldon and Jay Ajayi," Pauline wrote. "Coleman, the next in line, has his supporters and is building momentum. Despite playing with an injured knee Saturday, he posted 132-yards rushing on 19 carries during the Hoosiers upset win over Missouri." The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman has 569 yards on 66 caries (8.6 YPC) through three games.
Sep 23 - 5:25 PM

NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks writes that NFL scouts are excited about Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman's potential.

"There is always a place in the NFL for a big running back capable of being a three-down player," Brooks wrote. "Thus, scouts are excited about the potential of Coleman." Coleman rushed for 132 yards and a score on 19 carries in a 31-27 upset win over Missouri on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman averaged 7.3 yards per carry last season, and he's at a stunning 8.6 YPC thus far in 2014. "Although Coleman's production certainly stood out during the performance, it was the toughness and grit displayed by the 6-foot-1, 212-pound junior that stood out to me," Brooks wrote. "Coleman sat out most of the first half nursing an injury, but came back to carry the Hoosiers' offense with the game on the line. Given how much evaluators value a 'complete' running back with a tough disposition, Coleman is a prospect to watch going forward."

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 yards and a score on 19 carries in a 31-27 upset win over Missouri on Saturday.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman averaged 7.3 yards per carry last season, and he's making a mockery of even that amazing number so far. He's up to 569 yards and six touchdowns on 66 carries (8.6 YPC) during Indiana's 2-1 start. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks says that Coleman's "electric running skills" makes the Hoosiers' offense "a nightmare to defend." Indiana's defense might not stop anyone this year, but the offense can score with almost anyone.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes that Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman's "electric running skills" makes the Hoosiers' offense "a nightmare to defend."

"While the pace and tempo wears opponents down, it's the electric running skills of Coleman that makes the Hoosiers' offense a nightmare to defend," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Coleman is one of the nation's most dangerous -- and underrated -- weapons out of the backfield. The Hoosier's prospect has rushed for 437 yards and five touchdowns on 47 attempts (a crazy 9.3 YPC) through two games.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 190 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries in a 45-42 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday.

If the Hoosiers miss a bowl game this year, it won't be the offense's fault. Coleman is one of the nation's most dangerous -- and underrated -- weapons out of the backfield. He's already rushed for 437 yards and five touchdowns on 47 attempts (a crazy 9.3 YPC) through two games. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Coleman led Indiana in rushing last year with 958 yards playing in nine games, averaging a whopping 7.3 yards per carry.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 247 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in the school's 28-10 win over Indiana State.

It is uncommon for a running back to go untouched for a 73 yard touchdown run up the middle, but Coleman posted such a play today as he displayed patience to follow blocks and acceleration to out run the defense. We keep talking about the 2015 running back class, and this is just another reason why.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "comes with a large degree of upside," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-1, 205 pound Coleman led Indiana in rushing last year with 958 yards playing in nine games, averaging a whopping 7.3 yards per carry and finishing tied for second nationally with five rushes of at least 50 yards. "I like what I saw from Tevin Coleman on film and feel he comes with a large degree of upside," Pauline wrote. "I’d like to see him move involved in the passing game but Coleman has a variety of next level skill." Out of his 12 rushing TDs, three covered at least 64 yards and six went at least 40 yards. Without Cody Latimer, the Hoosiers figure to rely on Coleman's playmaking ability a bit more in 2014. Pauline sees him as a Round 5 selection.
