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." Sep 22 - 6:40 PM

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.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "needs to stay healthy moving forward to show scouts he has NFL durability."

"Coleman has good vision to read blocks and find holes and is at his best in the open field when he can get his momentum going. He doesn't display dynamic explosion in his cuts, but picks up steam as he goes with a second gear to finish runs downfield," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-1, 205 pound Coleman led Indiana in rushing last year with 958 yards playing in nine games, while averaging a whopping 7.3 yards per carry. Unfortunately for Coleman, he missed the last three games of the season due to an ankle injury. The Hoosiers big play threat still managed to end up with 1,275 all-purpose yards on the season.
