McKinnon doesn’t have to be a stud to be more valuable than Coleman.
What we Do know about McKinnon: On a very very receiving back friendly Offense that can take a Similar back like Devontae Freeman and make them exceptional. He has showed like Coleman he’s an exceptional Back Up if in the right situation. He is the 49’er’s top back for the near future. He’s the superior Pass catcher. McKinnon has the potential to be an effective Back THIS year and beyond
Coleman: Better between the tackles. Capable Receiver. Had the chance to beat out Freeman to be Shannahan’s #1 back and didn’t. His ability to play in Denver and possibly other areas could be limited by his Condition (Sickle Cell). His condition May be the very reason why teams won’t commit to him long term. His condition could limit his career. As of now, he is still Freeman’s back up.
For Coleman to pay off you need him to sign in the right place at the right time or for Freeman to get seriously injured. Coleman is younger by aprox one year.
I rather have McKinnon. Even though he’s one year older. He has the best chance to impact your team barring a miracle. Also- notice how McKinnon took off once he finally had the Right Coach- Shurmur. Shannahan is every bit as friendly to McKinnon as Shurmur if not more> Ignore what mcKinnon did behind Pederson and Asiata. Viking’s coaching was inept at the time…
Also, McKinnon got paid, Coleman did not. Follow the $$$$
Just my 2 cents. Good luck to ya
