NBT gives you Brandon Coleman, wide receiver, Rutgers. This guy might be the most physically talented receiver since Moss. Not the prospect AJ Green was, or the athlete Patterson - but Coleman has more potential than either.

Would be 21 year old Brandon Coleman stands a towering 6'6 inches, yet is built proportionately for his height -there is nothing awkward about him. For being taller than Calvin Johnson, Coleman possesses quick feet & smooth hips unlike Johnson, or taller receivers like Plaxico Burress or Stephen Hill, he is more comparable to Cincinnati AJ Green. Like Calvin, Coleman doesn't have lanky 'slow' speed ala Sidney Rice - Coleman used quick feet & long powerful strides to run DAMN fast. Reported 40s of 4.40-4.45, but he has top speed in the 4.3s, and certainly seems to play faster than Stephen Hill. For being 6'6, Coleman is not a skinny/lanky guys ala Randy Moss or AJ Green, either. He is built more like a (very) young Terrell Owens - he is proportionate with solid muscular foundation. He possesses solid, though not amazing, upsion but makes up for it with his height and long arms.

Coleman is a natural ball catcher. He has had some concentration drops while peeking ahead too soon, or trying to make an acrobatic catch in traffic, but in general he has sound hands. He catches the ball in the air and away from his body, and has made several one handers in college. His ball skills also show tremendous talent. He naturally adjusts to the ball in their very well. He has excellent ball-tracking skills, and he is capable of kicking into an extra gear while simultaneously turning his hips to run a different angl to adjust to the pass.

Coleman runs a full route tree, and runs them all well as the tape demonstrates. Quick feet, smooth hips, great top speed, and as good of body control as one can get for his height are all obvious in the tape below.

At the moment, he is too raw & too unproven to be top a 5 pick as his measurables & talent might suggest he merits. In two seasons,Coleman has 56 career catches for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was 2nd/3rd fiddle to Mohammad Sanu last season before becoming one of their focal points this year. But, I think he is worth a flier in round 1 or 2, depending on his pre-draft hype. This guy could be the Aldon Smith/Bruce Irvin of receivers, his measurables are almost unprecedented. Pu him in our offense, and OROTY for sure.

Not even draft eligible until 2014.
Also not nearly as fast as you make him out to be. His averaged timed speed is ~4.55

Red shirt sophomore. He was class of 2010 in high school.

Time reports range from 4.41 to 4.48. None in the 4.5's that I have seen, & going off tape, that time looks right where he should be.

Unless this is the most ridiculously stacked receiver class ever, Im through. Coleman, Patterson, Williams, Hunter, Rodgers, Wheaton, Woods, Austin, Bailey, King, Dobson...they'd all be decent additions, in that order.

I think you missed Frederick McKeeman of the Oglethorpe University Stormy Petrals. He's 6'9" and runs a 4.1.

...don't tell me you actually thought Stephen Hill was a good prospect? Honestly I don't think you're half as insane with the WR obsession as most people here do, but Hill would pretty much destroy that.

I graded Hill as mid rounds at best. Preferred Tommy Streeter.

I bet NBT was a huge fan of James Hardy and Malcolm Kelly, too...

Hardy couldn't move, and Kelly knees were non existent. Mario Manningham was my top receiver of that class, followed by Devin Thomas. I looooathed that class. Nobody likes to say it but NBT's receiver rankings are damn good.

All pre rookie years:

AJ Green = poss GOAT
Torrey Smith - scary fast game speed
Rueban Randle = looks a certified stud muffin when he has played
DHB = not as bad as everybody initially thought
Mike Wallace & Desean Jackson = elite deep threats from day 1
Golden Tate = not that bad
Demaryius Thomas = pretty damn good
Stephen Hill = sucks
Dez Bryant = slow start but clearly a good player
Mike Williams on TB = 1000 yard receiver potential
Sidney Rice = beast when healthy
Hakeem Nicks = dog dirt

And then theres
Randy Moss = not totally finished in 2012
T.O. IN 2008 = clearly still good despite Ed Werder
Chad OC = sucks & done, shoulda signed Rand

and of course - whining that we should trade for Steve Smith instead of OC prior to 2011, with everyone - including you Tzi - was responding "Steve Smith is done...chad is clearly going to kill it it here"...

NBT has two very good eyes, and both know what to look for in wide receivers. This guy is NOT 'can't miss/domination totally inevitable despite QB/team/anything" ala AJ Green (who is really doing on the lower level of his potential thanks to Dalton), but with the Patriots, this guy with huge potential is a great spot to get the most of it.

I'm telling you..."Brady bombs it WAAAAAY OUT THERE for Coleman who MAKES THE CATCH and will WALK INTO THE END ZONE!! O MUH GAHSHHH. Brandon Coleman is just TOO GOOD. He had 3 guys around him who all get frozen watching him pull away, and he just casually strolls into the end zone for the 5th time today, like "Oh, i scored? no big deal".

I want two starters from the draft. A starting d lineman and wide receiver.
Best NBT wideout available would work. I think those are the two big impact areas. It could change if people leave however.
