A returning senior, Coleman had a very underrated season in 2014, totaling 533 yards and three touchdowns. What stands out is his 5.0 yards-per-rush, which places among the best running backs in college football. All of this was given to him in a part-time role; if given the opportunity to take over as the starter, Coleman may very well have a breakout season on the ground.

He is not a good pass-catcher out of the backfield but makes up for it with his ability to explode out of the backfield for a large gain. Coleman will be splitting time with Marshawn Williams in 2015.

Williams had a large part of the carries in 2014, but is now rehabbing back from a torn ACL. While working back to full-strength, Coleman has the chance to take over the full-time starting gig for the 2015 season.
