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 QB Nate Sudfeld completed 31-of-41 attempts for 347 yards and a touchdown in a 45-42 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday.

Despite a ho-hum opener against Indiana State, Rotoworld draft analyst Josh Norris ranked Sudfeld as the No. 8 QB prospect, an opinion Sudfeld validated on this day. In the end, Sudfeld and Tevin Coleman couldn't overcome the imposition of carrying Indiana's leaky defense, but Sudfeld showed why we think he's an intriguing developmental prospect to stash on the bench. Sudfeld "has next level size and arm strength," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline, who graded the IU product as a preseason Round 4 selection.

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.
Sep 14 - 8:01 PM

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.
Aug 30 - 6:06 PM

Indiana junior QB Nate Sudfeld completed 11 of 18 attempts for 111 yards and an interception in the school's 28-10 win over Indiana State.

We have pegged Sudfeld as a quarterback prospect who could emerge, but this was not a step in the right direction. Sudfeld did not complete a pass until the second quarter, but Tevin Coleman and the running game was absolutely enough for the Hoosiers. Indiana faces Bowling Green after an off week.

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.

Indiana junior QB Nate Sudfeld "has next level size and arm strength," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

Sudfeld seized the undisputed starting gig when Tre Roberson decided to transfer. "Sudfeld has next level size and arm strength but does not play in a pro-style offense and doesn’t project to a read option," Pauline wrote. "That said Sudfeld has the tools necessary to play at the next level as a traditional drop back/pocket passer." Sudfeld led the squad with 2,523 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions last year. Pauline grades him as a preseason Round 4 selection.
Aug 7 - 7:31 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline urges readers to "keep an eye" on Indiana redshirt sophomore DT Ralph Green III.

"The defensive tackle showed a lot of ability last season and offers a good degree of upside potential," the analyst wrote. "Presently graded as a free agent, Green will most definitely move up draft boards if he develops his game." As a freshman last year, Green III was named a CollegeFootballNews.com Freshman All-American honorable mention and was also an honorable mention on the BTN.com All-Big Ten Freshman team.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline writes that Indiana junior OT Jason Spriggs "impresses" on game film.

The 6-foot-6, 297-pound Spriggs captured the left tackle gig as a true freshman and has made 24 straight starts. "He’s a fundamentally sound pass blocker who makes great use of angles and body positioning to protect the edge," Pauline wrote. "Spriggs is not the flashiest left tackle prospect but very dependable." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler disagrees that Spriggs is "fundamentally sound." He wrote last month that the Hoosier prospect's "base strength and technique need refined as he tends to pop upright off the snap with a soft punch, but he has the temperament for the trenches and fights through the whistle."

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline says he was "very impressed" with Indiana junior OT Jason Spriggs on game film.

He didn't explicate why, so we'll have to wait on his analysis until Pauline breaks down Big 10 prospects. Interestingly, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler also wrote last week that Spriggs caught his eye on tape. The 6-foot-6, 297-pound Spriggs captured the left tackle gig as a true freshman and has made 24 straight starts. "He has adequate set up quickness off the snap with smooth body control and natural movements in space," Brugler wrote. "Spriggs' base strength and technique need refined as he tends to pop upright off the snap with a soft punch, but he has the temperament for the trenches and fights through the whistle."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Indiana redshirt junior LB David Cooper projects as a priority free agent.

Cooper has started all 24 games the past two years after transferring to Indiana from Coffeyville Community College. "Cooper is smart and uses his eyes well to track the ball, but he will be fooled by misdirection and fakes, struggling to recover," Brugler wrote. "He is more of a one-speed athlete with stiff hips and pedestrian redirection skills and although he doesn't show explosive movements, Cooper floats well in coverage and has the strength to finish tackles." He was one of Indiana's top defenders last year with 85 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler thinks Indiana senior CB Tim Bennett has the potential to be Indiana's first drafted defensive back since Tracy Porter in 2008.

The former JUCO transfer led the FBS with 21 passes defended. "He lacks ideal size and speed for the NFL level, but with another productive season in 2014, Bennett could be the first Indiana defensive back drafted since Tracy Porter in 2008," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-9, 186-pound Bennett runs a 4.52 forty.

Indiana senior WR Shane Wynn lacks size, but "his speed as a ballcarrier and return man make him dangerous," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

If Wynn can earn a spot at the next level as a return man, NFL coaches could eventually turn him into an interesting slot weapon. He stands a diminutive 5-foot-6 and 167 pounds, but blazes an impressive 4.38 forty. Wynn, who logged 46 catches for 633 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns last year, will assume top-receiver duties in 2014 with Cody Latimer and Kofi Hughes off to the NFL.
