Tennessee DB Justin Coleman Penned A Letter Thanking Former Coaches, Teammates, And Fans Ahead Of NFL Draft

Tennessee's Justin Coleman isn't one of the players expected to hear his name called during Thursday's NFL Draft first round, but he will likely find himself on a pro team before the weekend is out. He took to Twitter to share a letter with his former coaches, teammates, and fans from both high school and Tennessee ahead of the draft. We think he did a really great job with this.
