2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Glen Coffee, RB, Alabama

Coffee probably isn't ready to make the jump from college to the NFL, but he decided to make it nonetheless. Then again, it's hard to imagine producing the same kind of season as the one in which he just exploded for the BCS-bound Alabama Crimson Tide. After redshirting in 2005 and playing in a backup role throughout most of his freshman and sophomore seasons in 2006 and 2007, Coffee became a First Team All-SEC performer as a junior in 2008. He rushed 233 times for 1383 yards and 10 touchdowns while adding another score and 118 more yards on 16 receptions. Behind an impressive offensive line, Coffee helped lead Alabama to an undefeated regular season before it fell apart a bit in the SEC Championship and Sugar Bowl. With OT Andre Smith departing and other foreseeable holes developing in the offensive line, Coffee might have been hard-pressed to duplicate all of those numbers as a senior. As such, he is going pro despite not really possessing that coveted blend of size and speed that makes scouts salivate. He has a decent build at 6'1' and 200 pounds, and his peak 40-yard-dash times in the low 4.4s are solid but not spectacular. Coffee does not project as a feature back in the NFL at the moment, and there are an excess of backup-like running backs in the NFL, so his draft stock could suffer. Still, it would not be surprising to see a team go for him as early as the fourth round. Plus the fact that he is a strong leader both on and off the field certainly won't hurt.
