College Stats

2015: Won the Biletnikoff Award after catching 74 passes for 1,363 yards and 20 TDs in 12 games, also earning unanimous All-American and all-conference awards. His 20 TDs led the country. He also had 22 rushes for 111 yards. Coleman did not play in his team's bowl game, opting instead to undergo surgery so he'd be ready for the run up to the 2016 NFL Draft.

Career: Totaled 173 receptions for 3,009 yards and 33 TDs in 36 games. Also had 33 rushes for 164 yards and 1 TD and 25 kickoff returns for 651 yards and 1 TD. Came up big in big games, with 15 receptions for 224 yards and a TD vs. Oklahoma and seven receptions for 150 yards and a TD vs. Michigan in the Cotton Bowl in his sophomore season.

Combine Results

40-yard dash: 4.37 seconds (pro day result)

Bench press: 17 reps (5th among all WRs)

Vertical: 40.5 inches (3rd among all WRs)

Broad jump: 10 feet, 9 inches (4th among all WRs)


Summary:A stone-cold TD maker, Coleman was heavily targeted in Baylor's high-flying offense and he made defenses pay often. Explosive traits (speed, leaping ability) and good body control allow Coleman to challenge defenses deep down the field and his agility and knack for making tacklers miss make him lethal in the screen game and as a punt returner. * *

Scout Speak:An excerpt from his Scouting Profile says Coleman is an "instant blur off the snap. Feet turn over at a blinding pace and he devours cushion before cornerbacks know what hit them. Able to get over the top of every corner he faced and demands safety help over the top.

Stacking Up: Coleman is universally placed among the top tier of WRs in this year's class along with Josh Doctson, Michael Thomas and Laquon Treadwell. Of the NFL Media analysts, Charles Davis has Coleman going first in his mock draft while Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah each of Coleman going second in theirs.
