Been wondering when this thread would appear.

This is basically correct IMO:

Said one NFC coach of Coleman, "He is a solid guy who can be a starter, but I think he is a better rotational guy. Who starts is up to the team. He's got a very good change of pace."


Since the day they drafted him there's been someone in here saying he would take the job from Freeman. Only he never did and the opportunity has been there. Especially this past season with Free out for the year. 800 yds and 4 tds as the #1. 32 receptions which is right around his average. Not overwhelming numbers.

Now admittedly the O-line play this past season was terrible. And he certainly could have been featured more in the receiving department as he is a good receiver. However, nothing has made me change this line of thinking I had:

scootm44 wrote:Coleman is a good receiver and has great straight line speed but he runs high, takes hits and isn't very elusive. I don't really know who to compare him to. Demarco Murray without the size, AP without the shiftiness.


All that said, he's a talented guy that can help a team. I'd rather not lose him but the economics just aren't going to work out for ATL. . If your team gets him....temper your expectations.

He is someone that I thought would become a RB1, but now I'm stuck with him on my team.

I think he could produce in the right situation, but I value him as a mid RB2 at best.

As has been conveyed I'm high on him but, that's right about where I see him.

Where we all differ, at least me, is I think that's where he's going to land this year. Other folks see way more risk in him getting there than me for reasons they've stated.

Obviously, I'm betting on a super landing spot.

In a best case landing spot, End of first to mid second for me. Picks 1.12 to 2.06

Oof. Not me.

I mean he was in a pretty nice spot last season as the #1 on a good offensive team in a system he's comfortable with and still put up pedestrian numbers. Certainly there are reasons why that situation wasn't ideal but I don't see him jumping into a new system and lighting it up.

should have been San Fran but McKinnon got in the way

although from shady memory, McKinnon contract wasn't so bad up front

Good point. Back with Shanahan would have been a nice landing spot.

Welp guys, that’s where he just went. To San Fran.

Dyno, to clarify. Not sure if that matters, and I'm not a huge fan. But that's where his value was for me before SF

Well SF probably is the most ideal situation he could land in. Should be interesting.

Assuming the 49ers keep McKinnon, the 9ers/Shanahan could be developing into the NFC version of the Pats/Belichek as far as RB corps go.
