S Kurt Coleman Scouting Report

S Kurt Coleman, Ohio State
Pos. Rank: 10 Grade: 3rd Round Height: 5-10 1/2 Weight: 192 40: 4.52 Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Underrated college safety with a complete game. Smart, tough and creates opportunities for his team. Works well with cornerbacks, displays terrific awareness and solid instincts. Reads the action, recognizes routes in zone coverage and displays a nice break to the ball. Aggressive, works hard to get involved in the action and wraps up tackling. Takes good angles to plays and very efficient. Displays solid sideline to sideline range in centerfield and covers a lot of area.

The Bad: Possesses just average size and speed. Marginally explosive.

The Verdict: Coleman is one of the more complete safeties in this draft yet will be downgraded because he lacks the great measurables. He offers the ability to play in several systems and has starting potential. In many ways Coleman reminds us of Ed Reed when the All Pro entered the draft in 2002.
