Tennessee Player Shows Gratitude Ahead of Draft

If NFL coaches are looking for maturity in the upcoming draft, they need look no further than Tennessee’s Justin Coleman.

The defensive back took time to thank fans, former coaches, and teammates with a heartfelt letter on Twitter. Attached to the Tweet itself was a four paragraph essay that recognized everyone who’s helped him along the way.

Thanks to all who helped me get to where I am today. Looking forward to what the future holds @Vol_Football #VFL pic.twitter.com/HKex0eCa3N

Coleman is full of gratitude, but he isn’t holding his breath. CBS Sports projects that he’ll be selected on the second or third day of the draft, somewhere between the 5th and 7th rounds.

The fourth-year Brunswick, GA native had four interceptions and 42 tackles in 2014, his senior season, while breaking up five passes.
