The Dolphins continued to add developmental players in the 7th round with UMass OT Larnel Coleman. The 6’6″ 315-pounder was a three-year starter allowing just 3 sacks over his college career. While not a player with starting potential in his early years, Coleman has great potential to be tapped.
Coleman tested very well at his pro day with his 31-inch vertical and 113-inch broad jump hinting at a very positive athletic profile. His 36-inch arms complete all the physical tools you are looking for in an offensive lineman. While it may take Coleman time to develop, expect to see more of him in a Dolphins uniform soon.
LARNEL COLEMAN IS A DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECT
Draft Network had this to say about Larnel Coleman, “When you envision a developmental tackle, players like Coleman are the first that come to mind. At 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds (plus 36.25” arms), Coleman has all the length you could possibly desire on the edge. With a seventh-round pick, there’s little harm in hoping to draft a ball of clay and work him into a swing tackle for down the line.“
