Eagles Training Camp: Kurt Coleman Impresses Sean McDermott

Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott spoke with the media after practice and singled out rookie safety Kurt Coleman for praise. Coleman was the the Eagles 7th round pick out of Ohio State and missed the offseason OTAs due to NFL rules that don’t allow rookies from schools with a late graduation date to practice.

After his press conference, McDermott told Wing Tips that Coleman [pictured above right] “quarterbacked the defense” on his first practice – translation: made calls and coverage checks – better than any he rookie he could remember. Said McDermott: “Does he have room to grow? Absolutely. But the way he handled himself and quarterbacked the defense for not being here all but three days after the draft camp, that’s tremendous.”

With second round pick Nate Allen still unsigned, Kurt Coleman figures to get a lot of work at safety in his absence.
