Tevin Coleman Player Overview

Tevin Ford Coleman is 27-years old and was born in Oak Forest, Illinois. He was a running back, wide receiver and cornerback in high school, also returning kickoffs and punts. As a senior, he rushed 83 times for 949 yards and 13 TDs, adding 16 receptions for 345 yards and 5 TDs. That’s an insane 11.4 yards per carry. Coleman was also on the track and field team and was one of the best sprinters and jumpers in the state of Illinois.

Considered a three-star recruit, Coleman chose to attend Indiana over Georgia Tech, Minnesota, and Michigan State. He played three years of college ball at Indiana. In his freshman year, Coleman only rushed 51 times for 225 yards and a touchdown.

In his sophomore year, he started the first nine games rushing 131 times for 958 yards, an impressive 7.3 yards per carry and 12 touchdowns. He also caught 19 passes for 193 yards but unfortunately suffered a high-ankle sprain and missed the final three games of the season.

In his junior year, he broke out. He rushed 270 times for 2,036 yards, an impressive 7.5 yards per carry along with 15 touchdowns, catching 25 passes for an additional 141 yards. Coleman entered into elite status as becoming only the 18th player in NCAA Division I FBS history to rush for over 2,000 yards in one season.

At Coleman’s Pro Day, he measured 5’11?”, weighed 206 pounds and ran a 4.40-second 40-yard dash. He was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he was expected to back up Devonta Freeman. Unfortunately Freeman got injured, and Coleman was thrust into the role. He played in 12 games that season, rushing 87 times for 382 yards and a TD.

In his second season, he played in 13 games rushing 118 times for 520 yards and 8 touchdowns. He also caught 31 passes for 421 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Despite playing in five NFL seasons, Coleman has only played in all 16 games once.
