Keon Coleman, the wide receiver from Florida State, is making waves in the world of football. After a sensational transfer from Michigan State before the 2023 season, Coleman's performance has been nothing short of astounding. With an impressive record of leading the team in receiving yards (658) and touchdowns (11), Coleman's acrobatic prowess and sheer production have landed him squarely on the radar of numerous draft analysts for the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft.

Recently, CBS Sports' Josh Edwards released a mock draft that gave us some insight into where he believes the future of these promising prospects lies. The 6'4'', 215-pound junior, Keon Coleman, is expected to head to Baltimore, according to Edwards. He goes so far as to project Coleman being selected towards the end of the first round by the Baltimore Ravens, with the 30th pick.

"Odell Beckham Jr. is a free agent after the season and Rashod Bateman has not been reliable," Edwards' article stated. "Keon Coleman is a bigger-bodied target who can win down the field for Lamar Jackson. He should pair nicely with Zay Flowers and Mark Andrews."

The Baltimore Ravens could offer Coleman the perfect platform to showcase his skills. The opportunity to catch passes from quarterback Lamar Jackson could be an enticing prospect for Coleman. Known for his polished route running, Coleman's transition could be smooth and the learning curve, slight.

Coleman's talent is not confined to just one aspect of the game. He was a first-team All-ACC selection in the past season, not only as a wide receiver but also as an all-purpose player and specialist. Coleman's dynamic punt return skills saw him average 12.6 yards per return on 24 attempts for 302 yards, with a long of an impressive 72 yards.

The 2024 NFL Draft is all set to take place from April 25 to April 27. The first round will kick-off at 8 p.m. With promising talents like Coleman in the mix, it's sure to be an exciting event to watch.
