Everywhere I've seen shows him in the mid 4.5's?


Not a chance, projected 40's are never close. If you've ever seen him play you know that his speed is legit. Peep the 2:00 mark on this vid:

“People know Brandon Coleman is 6-6, maybe 6-7, but what people don’t know about him is that he can run, too,” Rutgers cornerback Logan Ryan said. “He has elite speed. With his height, size, range and the way he goes up for the ball, he’s a tough matchup. And he’s not afraid to block. The Big East better get ready for him.”

Coleman is the total package. Not only is he a legitimate 6-6, he weighs 215 pounds and has been clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash.

No problem. Smile

Coleman as of now is a 1st round pick. Next year he will have to prove that he can be more physical attacking the ball in air and become more consistent catching the ball if he want's to be a Top 15 lock.

I just watched the Uconn video you posted and I thought he looked like a 3rd rounder (I might even downgrade further). I'm not an expert but just didn't look elite IMO. He also looks like he runs in the 4.5's.

It's just my opinion though. I've been wrong before.

wow, this Coleman StorkMan looks interesting!

Shocked

really wraps the ball up tight too after a catch when he knows he's going to be hit.

Keep him in mind he is just a sophomore. He certainly has work to do between now and next year but he possesses a lot of traits NFL scouts will drool over. The one thing that separates him from most big WRs is how smooth of a receiver he is. He gets in and out of his breaks very well for a guys his size. As for speed, I guarantee he is a 4.4 guy. Overall, he is high on everyone's radar but I agree he hasn't pushed the title of elite yet.

Just confirmed Eastern Washington WR Brandon Kaufman is declaring for the NFL Draft. Was waiting on the news.

I love Brandon Coleman for multiple reasons. One is his speed, especially due to his size. It's very impressive.

But I love his size even more. The guy is a red zone threat and the one you look for when you need that big play. He already knows how to use his big body and get up and get a pass. Think Plaxico Burress with more speed and no bullet wounds.

But seriously, I love this kid and can't wait to see him at the next level. Because of his size & speed, with the right coaching and offense, I don't see why he couldn't have Megatron-like production as far as being reliable and putting an offense on his back. If the ball is anything near catchable, it's a grab for him.

There is a pretty good CB from North Dakota State this year that might get drafted. He went to Hopkins High School I believe. Pretty sure its Marcus Williams.



Edit: Guess he decided to go back for his senior year.

Brian Leonhardt, TE, Bemidji State (6'5", 263 lb)

Recruited by the University of Minnesota track and field program, Leonhardt had a choice. Did he want to compete in the Big Ten in track and field, or did he want to compete at a lower level to participate in track and field AND football? He chose the latter.

Career stats
Freshman: 24 catches, 254 yards, 7 TDs
Sophomore: 28 catches, 351 yards, 3 TDs
Junior: 35 catches, 483 yards, 2 TDs
Senior: 25 catches, 343 yards, 3 TDs
Totals: 112 catches, 1,431 yards, 15 TDs

Was named Offensive MVP in Texas vs. Nation game today. 4 catches, 62 yards, 1 TD

Is Jordan Rodgers entering the NFL Draft?

Is he any good, or is he known simply for name recognition?

Yes he was a senior last year. Probably will be a 6-FA. Doesnt have the arm or smarts that Aaron has, but is a little more athletic. I would actually compare him to a poor mans Ponder right now. I think he would make a good backup as he would not require changing the system.
