Bills select explosive WR Coleman at 33

The Buffalo Bills have selected former Florida State WR Keon Coleman with the 33rd overall selection of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Having traded out of the first round of the draft, the Bills wasted no time replenishing their depleted WR room that has seen Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis depart. Coleman was a touchdown machine as a Seminole, scoring 19 touchdowns on just 115 catches of college ball.

Bills added some pace and explosion

PFF had this to say about the Florida State WR prior to the draft, “Coleman is a top-tier receiver from an explosiveness standpoint. His burst, top speed and leaping ability are All-Pro caliber. However, the lack of agility in his game limits his route tree and ability to separate from defensive backs. Those who love those alpha-type receivers will be big fans, but his inability to consistently separate means he won’t be for everyone.”

Coleman was eloquent about what he wants to bring to the Bills and head coach Sean McDermott’s offence at his press conference, “I’m looking forward to being a sponge and taking in every nugget I can get from everybody learning what they do off the field to keep their bodies healthy to where they can play every Sunday and just, you know, overall their mentality going in every weekend,” he said. “You know, how they study, how they learn and just how I can be better.”

“To have the ability to stay quarterback friendly, stay on the same side of the field, get across the field, be in his vision and you know, be a big target, use my size to be able to shield off a defender and give him a target,” he said. “He’s running for his life and doesn’t want to get hit. He’s gonna throw that ball, but he would rather somebody catching that.”
