With the 244th overall pick the Philadelphia Eagles select DB Kurt Coleman

The Eagles have made their final pick of the 2010 NFL draft and it's Kurt Coleman, DB from Ohio State. I guess he becomes the Eagles' own "Mister Irrelevant."

Quick take on the 5-10 192lb Coleman

Coleman is a bit of a tweener (size, speed) prospect for the next level. He doesn’t have great size for the safety position but lacks great pure speed to play out on the perimeter. Coleman is a fierce competitor that is aggressive defending the run as well as the pass. He has good intelligence in understanding schemes but can be inconsistent in his run support angles and can be out of position at times. Coleman is quicker than fast and may fit best in sub packages (nickel back) as he doesn’t have outstanding recovery speed and burst to cover top receivers. Coleman has solid ball skills but needs to play with more consistency in his technique (peddle, pad level, leveraging receivers and ball carriers). He should be a contributor on special teams as a rookie but may take some time to get on the field defensively.
