Tevin Coleman is the running back likely to receive the most touches in the 49ers offense in 2019 according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Coleman is getting a head start in the 49ers backfield with Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, and Raheem Mostert all sitting out OTAs.
Most likely Coleman is the back to get short-yardage and goal-line carries, although he was never really used that way during his four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons despite his 6’1″, 210-lb. frame.
Coleman showed he is best used in a committee after flopping as the Falcons’ lead back in 2018 in the wake of Devonta Freeman’s injury. He nevertheless topped 1,000 total yards and scored nine touchdowns.
