Tevin Coleman was the Atlanta Falcons’ third round pick in 2015 and is headed into training camp with a good chance at winning the starting running back job over second year back, Devonta Freeman. Coleman is a very different back than that of Freeman and is capable of carrying a heavy load.

Coleman is the best football player to come out of Indiana in quite some time. His ability to turn on the jets makes him an extremely deadly running back to have on your team. One thing he will need to work on, however is his pass blocking and catching the ball out of the backfield, something Freeman does very well.

This is also one of the top position battles to look for in 2015. Like free safety, it is anyone’s game at this point. Freeman may be the guy to go to on third down, but Coleman will get the majority of the hand-offs  and will hopefully light it up on game day.
