Tevin Coleman

Coleman is one of the draft eligible running backs that the Giants could take a look at in the 2015 NFL Draft at the end of April. Coleman was unable to participate in the NFL Combine because of a toe injury, but you do not need to watch drills to know how fast he is. Coleman is a blur, and would be able to break 4.4 when he runs the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day in April.

He is a player the Giants would consider using a pick on the second day of the draft. Coleman right now is rated as the third running back by plenty of draft experts, and is expected to go at the end of the second round, potentially falling into the third. If he begins to slip, the Giants could pounce much like they did with Andre Williams last year, who they snagged in the fourth round.

The Giants though, as we saw with Williams last year and Wilson before him, do not have much trust in rookie running backs. They would rather bring them along slowly than throw them right into the fire. Coleman would undoubtedly bring added speed to the Giants offense, something they are desperate to find as Odell Beckham Jr. is currently the only speed threat the team has that they know what they’ll be getting from.
