The Atlanta Journal-Constitution projects Tevin Coleman as 1A on the depth chart and Devonta Freeman as 1B.



Coleman, the third-round rookie out of Indiana, brings superior physical skills to the table. The diminutive Freeman will remain in the mix as a change-of-pace option and potential third-down back. Homerun hitter Antone Smith also figures to get some chances. But as long as Coleman keeps his nose in front of this committee, he'll have serious upside thanks in large part to the presence of run-game guru Kyle Shanahan.

"Coleman is a one cut runner who displays elite burst off of one cut primarily due to his hip flexibility.

He gets into his second gear very quickly then tends to outrun the second level defenders."


Taking a closer look at Indiana's Tevin Coleman:




Coleman's stat line @ Ohio State on Nov 22nd, 2014:

27 carries / 228yds / 8.4 avg / long of 90yds / 3 TDs

Freeman is definitely a quality starter at RB. He may even start game 1...but after that, I find it hard to imagine a prototypical 3-down back like Coleman not being our lead back. Elite Speed cannot be taught and he's much larger than Antone

That definitely wasn't his statline against OSU, I remember 3-4 big runs and one was for 90 yards.

lol I'm saying take out the outliers. It's a principal of statistical analysis... you go to a certain level of standard deviations and exclude anything outside that range. Do you get it now?
