Bills Anticipate Steep Learning Curve for Rookie Wideout Keon Coleman
2 weeks ago

Despite being drafted with the franchise’s top selection in the 2024 NFL Draft, Keon Coleman is expected to begin the season beneath Khalil Shakir on Buffalo’s depth chart — even after the departures of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis this past spring.

Although Keon Coleman was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the second round to shore up a massive hole at wide receiver, it appears as though it will take some time for the former Florida State standout to fill the void left by Diggs and Davis. According to Bills GM Brandon Beane, “he’ll have to learn the offense” and will be brought along slowly. And although every rookie from the 2024 class will be afflicted with varying degrees of learning, Coleman figures to be tasked with a steeper learning curve than most. After all, the 21-year-old will be playing in an offense led by Josh Allen that has been searching for an elusive Super Bowl ring.

 

While Beane did allude to the fact that he anticipates that Coleman will eventually “learn multiple spots” and become a key cog in the offense, he said that it “might not be right away.” This development is far from ideal for his fantasy prospects heading into the 2024 season, even if Coleman has a sky-high ceiling down the road as a freak athlete and downfield threat in an offense led by the consensus QB1 in fantasy. Shakir, on the other hand, heads into the year as the only Buffalo wideout to have caught a pass from Allen in a regular season game. His stock should only grow after Beane’s comments regarding the development of Keon Coleman, who should remain nothing more than a high-upside, late-round selection in your fantasy league.

Keon Coleman Drafted 33rd Overall by the Buffalo Bills
2 months ago

The Bills have drafted FSU Wide Receiver, Keon Coleman, with the 33rd pick in the 2024 NFL draft.

Coleman has been one of the more polarizing players to evaluate during the pre-draft process, being an early declare with menacing ball skills and a glaring inability to separate. This archetype has led many analysts to speculate his landing spot and usage will be a large factor in determining his future success. The Bills drafting Coleman 33rd overall is a strong sign of faith from them, and a great landing spot for Coleman.

 

Coleman immediately slots in as a top receiving option for Josh Allen on a team that lost it’s two primary wide receivers this offseason. Fantasy Managers can expect Coleman to be a late first round pick in rookie Superflex drafts, and he’s worth a dart throw at the end of redraft formats as well. Khalil Shakir and Curtis Samuel will still be playing meaningful snaps in 2024, but this hurts their upside.

Keon Coleman Disappoints in 40-Yard Dash

Keon Coleman runs a 4.64 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine

Keon Coleman, the talented junior wide receiver from Florida State, participated in athletic testing at the NFL Combine this weekend. This biggest headline being his 4.64 40-yard dash time this past Saturday. While he wasn’t expected to be fast, this number was slightly disappointing. However, he rebounded quickly and was able to show his athletic ability hitting 20 mph in the gauntlet drill.

 

Coleman is a three year college player whose best year came in his sophomore campaign for the Seminoles. However, he struggled with injuries in 2023 and was unable to improve upon that success. Additionally, he’s a big-bodied wide receiver who fits the prototypical mold of an outside receiver at the NFL level. A more impressive 40-yard dash would have been nice, but Keenan Allen and Cooper Kupp are examples of successful NFL wide receivers who didn’t have great times. As a result, Coleman should still be a borderline first-round pick in the NFL Draft.
