Scouting Report
While some believe Coleman had a lot to gain from staying in school, he's eager to prove himself after foregoing his final year of eligibility. The promising receiver broke out with 43 receptions for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns during his sophomore season at Rutgers before taking a step back in 2013. Coleman caught just 34 passes for 538 yards and four scores last year, finishing third on the team with 41.4 yards per game. Despite the drop off, there's plenty to like about this former second-team All-Big East selection. Coleman brings remarkable size to the table and presents a huge target on the field. He creates matchup problems for smaller defenders and is extremely hard to bring down once he gets going. Coleman showed off his strength at the NFL combine, where he completed 21 bench press reps to finish tied for second at his position. While a 4.56 40-yard dash wouldn't normally be anything to get excited about, many came away impressed considering his size. Though his body is NFL-ready, Coleman's lack of athleticism could hurt him at the next level. He also needs to improve his route running if he wants to be productive in the pros. Coleman is likely to be selected in the middle rounds of the draft given the depth at wide receiver, but he could prove to be a bargain if he falls far enough.
