The East cornerbacks form one of the most talented units in this game, and Coleman was a standout during the week of practice.
Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times asked East coach Mike Singletary which players impressed him the most. Singletary first mentioned Coleman, who had an impressive interception during coverage drills Wednesday. Coleman measured 5-11, 184 pounds with a solid, thick build. He had four interceptions for the Volunteers in 2014 while played mostly inside.
The week was an excellent test for Coleman. He was forced to match up with receivers in tight man coverage more often than he did for the Vols. Coleman excelled in those drills. He also showcased excellent ball skills during position work.
CB Justin Coleman showed good COD and impressed in man coverage. Also came up with an INT in one on one drills on Wednesday @Shrine_Game-- NFL Draft Blitz (@NFLDraftBlitz) January 14, 2015
