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.

Based on CBS and NFL.com, Coleman will likely be drafted somewhere between the fifth and seventh rounds. He is coming off of a strong senior season, during which he amassed 42 total tackles, four interceptions, and nine passes defended.
