2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
B.J. Coleman, QB, Chattanooga
After a year standing on the sidelines, soaking up information and taking some leftover practice reps, you could see Coleman develop into a starting NFL quarterback after a season or two. He has the necessary height and bulk. There are no problems with him making every throw. Fundamentally, he gets lazy in his lower half whether it's a poor follow-through or choppy steps which shake up his rhythm. This usually only happens when he is pressured. In order to correct this he has to better trust his line and himself to take the punishment. It's not a good idea to shuffle his weight when looking to deliver the football.
Coleman will probably hear his name called in the late rounds. Teams will need to craft his accuracy when he's not standing perfectly still and also accelerate his ability to feel within the pocket. He tends to hold the ball a beat too long. Coleman does have potential, but it looks to be as nothing more than a backup.
