When the name B.J. Coleman showed up on the ticker on draft day, many people most likely thought either who is that, or why didn't we draft Kellen Moore? Many people may be scared off when they see where he went to school, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, but few know where he started off. Coming out of high school Coleman was a top 20 recruit committed to the University of Tennessee. But after redshirting in 2007 and seeing limited action in 2008, Coleman knew it was time for a change of scenery. After the 2008 season Coleman transfered to the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga where he would gain instant playing time. His most productive season came as a junior where he tallied 11 starts, going 215-for-382 (56.3 percent) for 2,996 yards, 26 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and four rushing scores, earning Second Team All-Southern honors. B.J. Coleman already has all the tools to be a productive quarterback at the next level. He has the ideal frame that coaches look for with a big arm and above average velocity on his throws. Coleman is no stranger to playing in high pressure environments. In his first game this season at UTC he played an away game at one of the most intimidating stadiums in college football, the University of Nebraska. Despite the loss Coleman and UTC put together a great effort and the 40-7 Nebraska win does not accurately show how well Coleman and UTC played.Coleman will come in and compete for playing time behind Aaron Rodgers with Graham Harrell.
