 Overview

  Coleman emerged in his first season as a starter to lead the Tigers in tackles (71) in 2008. He learned the ropes behind All-Americans LaRon Landry and Craig Steltz and first drew notice as a special-teams stalwart on the kickoff coverage, kickoff return and punt return units. He ranked among special team leaders in tackles over the 2006 and '07 seasons.

Athletic, physical and a sound open-field tackler, Coleman moved to outside linebacker in 2009 to help LSU match up better against spread offenses. He made an immediate impact at the position, earning team MVP honors in posting 82 tackles, including nine tackles for loss and four sacks. He also forced a team-leading three fumbles.

Despite his production, Coleman lacks the size to remain at linebacker in the NFL. His versatility and willingness to switch positions, however, will go a long way with scouts, who ultimately view his best pro position as an in-the-box strong safety and on special teams.


 Analysis

  Read & React: Improving key-and-diagnosis skills as he gained experience close to the line of scrimmage. Locates the ball quickly and takes good angles, but can be beaten over the top due to over-aggressiveness.

Man Coverage: Rare straight-line speed and agility for the linebacker position and appears to have enough athleticism to handle the conversion back to safety in the NFL. Typical safety foot work. A bit high and choppy in his backpedal and lacks the hip flexibility to keep up with speedier tight ends and running backs when he allows them to eat up the cushion. Accelerates quickly once moving in the right direction, and has a second gear to recover. Too inconsistent with his initial jam at the line of scrimmage to re-route the tight end.

Zone Coverage: Improving instincts for zone coverage. Gains good depth on his drops and attacks the ball by reading the eyes of the quarterback. Changes direction efficiently and locates the ball quickly. Has smooth acceleration and good closing speed once he finds the action.

Closing/Recovery: Good closing speed, but gives up too much space to receivers and seems content making the tackle, rather than going for the ball. Had zero interceptions over his career and recorded his first pass broken up as a junior (finished with seven in 2008 and 11 for his career).

Run Support: Eager in run support and attacks the line of scrimmage. Willing to take on blocks, but prefers to elude them. Good agility to avoid blockers in tight quarters. Good flexibility to bend under the pad level of blockers and redirect quickly. Reliable open-field tackler.

Tackling: Gives high effort in pursuit. Breaks down in space to make the secure stop against smaller, quicker athletes. Efficient wrap-up tackler who is a heavy hitter with a knack for forcing fumbles. Forced four fumbles over his career, including three as a senior.

Intangibles: Lanky build with room for additional muscle growth. Experienced special teams player on various units. Proved his commitment to the team in moving to outside linebacker as a senior due to the fact that the coaching staff wanted more athleticism there when going against spread offense, as LSU opened the season against four consecutive spread offensive teams. Recognized by teammates as the team MVP after leading the Tigers with 77 tackles in his first season at linebacker.
