Keon Coleman Draft Profile | Florida State, WR Scouting Report

    In Keon Coleman, the Florida State Seminoles may have landed a first-round talent in the 2024 NFL Draft. Coleman's scouting report has all the details.

    The 2024 NFL Draft receiver class is stacked at the top, and Florida State Seminoles star Keon Coleman may be one of the more underrated early-round talents in the group. Looking at Coleman’s scouting report, how far can he rise in the 2024 NFL Draft cycle?

    Keon Coleman Draft Profile and Measurements

    • Height: 6’4″
    • Weight: 215 pounds
    • Position: Wide Receiver
    • School: Florida State
    • Current Year: Junior

    Coleman was a multi-sport athlete in high school who played six games under Basketball Hall of Fame head coach Tom Izzo at Michigan State in 2021. He’s always had talent that transcends individual sports, but football is Coleman’s specialty. A four-star recruit in the 2021 cycle, Coleman broke out as a leading target in Michigan State’s suspect passing offense in 2022.

    Despite volatility at quarterback and up front on the offensive line, Coleman thrived as a true sophomore in 2022. He racked up 58 catches, 798 yards, and seven touchdowns alongside 2023 second-round pick Jayden Reed. He leveraged that second-year production into a transfer opportunity at Florida State.

    On paper, the Seminoles have a dream team in 2023, and Coleman is quietly one of the most exciting pieces. Catching passes from Jordan Travis, he could reach his ceiling and breach the Round 1 conversation in the 2024 NFL Draft.

    Keon Coleman Scouting Report


    • Lab-built athlete with excellent size, length, frame density, and compact mass.
    • He is an effortless accelerator with hyperactive foot speed and lateral twitch for his size.
    • Can use brisk one-cut agility to make solo defenders miss in space and surge upfield.
    • Uses efficient diamond releases to offset DBs and two-hand swipes to pry free.
    • Actively presses upfield off releases and can manipulate DB blind spots with efficiency.
    • Sudden snap back, retract his strides and swivel around after pressing into stems.
    • Carries acceleration through stems and tight transitions with bend and hip flexibility.
    • Molds together elite timing, coordination, body control, and strength at the catch point.
    • Is an awe-inspiring contortionist with a gravity-bending feel for positioning in midair.
    • Coleman makes high-difficulty adjustments look effortless and seeks out the ball past his frame.
    • Snares contested targets with his swathing reach and suffocating hand strength.
    • Maximizes instincts with sharp tracking ability, hands, and a proactive alpha mentality.
    • Uses arm bars and swipes to clear his frame ahead of contested catches.
    • Strong contact balance to absorb hits with his frame and recollect his feet soon after.
    • He is an elite run blocker with patience, leverage awareness, and unfurled tenacity at contact.


    • Explosiveness, while exceptional, isn’t always enough to completely stack boundary DBs.
    • Lacks the elite long speed to take the top off of the defense.
    • Sometimes can be a bit late to decouple from defenders and turn his head on deep routes.
    • Can be prone to occasional drops on low, high-difficulty catch attempts.
    • Doesn’t quite have elite hip flexibility and sinking capacity; hips can lock up.
    • Has to take extra steps to gather himself on 180-degree route transitions.
    • Sometimes will divert upright at stems, sapping at momentum and keying in DBs.
    • At times, plant-and-drive footwork on comeback routes can be more efficient.
    • Has immense promise with his route tree but can strive for more consistent technique.
    • Contact balance, while solid, is not elite and doesn’t always bail him out on short passes.

    Current Draft Projection and Summary

    Coleman grades out as my WR4 in the 2024 NFL Draft. He’s a first-round talent in the impact starter range as a prospect, behind only Marvin Harrison Jr., Emeka Egbuka, and Malik Nabers on my board.

    That may be a bullish projection after just one season of production but Coleman has shown several translatable traits during his standout 2022 campaign and did so across all three levels of wide receiver play. At 6’4″, 215 pounds, Coleman is a surprisingly complete three-level threat and can outmatch defensive backs in all phases.

    Coleman’s most marketable phase of play is his catching ability. He can naturally box out and out-reach defenders at the catch point and can expand beyond his pure size with extraordinary catch-point instincts, contortion ability, hand-eye coordination, and an extremely proactive alpha mentality.

    Being an elite contested threat, in and of itself, is a plus. But Coleman has exciting utility as a separator and RAC weapon, too. As a route runner, he can tempo his releases and use foot speed, twitch, and targeted physicality to separate, and he has the swivel freedom to cut tight angles on route breaks.

    After the catch, he has the combined explosiveness, one-cut agility, contact balance, and physicality to torment defensive backs.

    Coleman does have room to keep refining his footwork efficiency as a route runner, and his long speed is only good. But he’s ultimately an explosive, fleet-footed, and flexible athlete at his size, with a rare level of utility and playmaking ability across phases. He’s a boundary alpha on day one, with compounded separation ability and yard-creation value.
