Bills WR Keon Coleman cracks list of 2024 NFL Draft's best picks

He received Josh Allen’s stamp of approval in the pre-draft process, and now, he’s received a vote of confidence from ESPN. 

Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Keon Coleman has been listed as one of the outlet’s ‘best’ 100 picks of the 2024 NFL Draft.

The list, compiled by Matt Miller, is not a simple write-up of the top 100 selections of the draft; it instead explores each prospect’s ability, draft capital, and the situation they’re entering, with Miller ranking his favorite 100 picks based on these, and several other, factors.

He included two of Buffalo’s 10 selections in his ranking, with Coleman, whom the Bills selected with the 33rd overall pick in the draft, coming in at No. 31 on Miller’s list.

Coleman was a solid value at No. 33 (after two trade-backs) with seven receivers off the board in the first round, and with his size and post-up ability, he's exactly what Buffalo and quarterback Josh Allen wanted.

Coleman's ability to win on 50-50 balls and create yards after the catch will help the Bills replace Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.”

Though Khalil Shakir and the recently-signed Curtis Samuel are talented players, Buffalo’s receiving corps lacks a true alpha, an offense-driver whom offensive coordinator Joe Brady can craft a passing attack around.
