Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

• Dale Newton continues introducing the class of 2011 as he profiles LB Tyson Coleman and CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. Here is a sneak peek at each profile.
Tyson Coleman: Tyson Coleman lays wood. Watch his highlight video and you get a key clue to how tough and physical he is by watching him carry the ball as a tailback. An inside runner with authority, when he gets to the second level as a running back, he's looking for someone else to hit. On defense, he sheds blocks and reads the offensive play well.
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu: A cornerback with an offensive background is often more aggressive when the ball is in the air; they find it easier and tend to react like it belongs to them rather than being passive or careful. He'll be a ballhawk, the very best kind of corner, a good and aggressive tackler with a little linebacker in him. His style compares to Jairus Byrd rather than Cliff Harris.
