uhm....hands?

I mean, I'm not one that believes you can teach a guy this late in his career how to catch a ball.

And what is your issue with his hands?

His problem is route running. His plucks balls out of the air over defenders. He's a perfect red zone target.

Perhaps the biggest concern about Coleman is his hand consistency. He'll often reach out and grab the ball, which is good. He's not always allowing it into his frame. But too often the ball bounces off his hands or he doesn't get them up fast enough.
Quote:
Cons

- Maddeningly inconsistent hands.

- Size means that stop/start quickness is lacking compared to smaller receivers.

- Routes aren't as sharp you would like.

- Isn't explosive off the line.

"I hope he understands that he needs to get in optimum shape, he needs to practice catching the ball every day, so he has this one chance to move up.
Quote:
Coleman's occasional drops didn't trouble Jeremiah because the receiver has demonstrated the ability "extend and pluck" passes.

"Some guys are pure body catchers. He's not a body catcher," Jeremiah said. "He can go after the ball and get it, but every now and then he'll let it get into his body and have some drops. His hands are a little bit inconsistent, but he can do it."
With Moye already on the team, why grab your guy if size is his best attribute? Will his skill have him starting over Moye, Wheaton, Cotchery or Brown.

If the Steelers draft someone I want it to be someone that will challenge Wheaton.

Of course he had bad games. He's a 4th round pick for a reason. But he did tie Tim Browns school record. I'm not saying he's the next Megatron, but there's potential there.

Hold on... people are talking about him at 15, not in R4.

Kelvin Benjamin at 15: no thanks.
Kelvin Benjamin in R4: steal of the draft!!!

Wait. You know we're talking about Brandon Coleman, right? People need to be locked up in a padded room if they want him for the 1st round.

But we do agree on Benjamin!

I fell in love with Evans during this years game against Alabama, they may have lost but he eat the vaunted Nick Saban Defense alive plus after the combine I'm completely sold. The attitude issue will undoubtedly be resolved in house.

2014 NFL Draft: Matt Miller's Scouting Notebook

By Matt Miller , NFL Draft Lead Writer Mar 6, 2014

WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

Texas A&M's Mike Evans is a unique prospect, and one who has taken me several sit-downs to fully understand and appreciate. But I think I've got him now. And what I've seen, and where I believe he can go, is very encouraging.

Evans is built like a tight end and runs like a wide receiver, which at first gave me pause as to where he would find himself playing in multiple NFL schemes.

Forget all that. Evans is an outside receiver with the tools to be a true No. 1 for an NFL team. The A&M scheme isn't diverse for wide receivers, especially when most of their work is done breaking back to the ball or adjusting their routes to account for Johnny Manziel's scrambling.

Evans, once in a pro scheme, will be even more dangerous.

Current ranking: No. 10 overall

WR Davante Adams, Fresno State

It's easy to love what you see on film from Davante Adams, but until after the combine I never gave him the credit he deserved.

How much of Adams' production and impact was due to having a top-tier quarterback in Derek Carr?

Adams is able to separate and create on his own, though. You see great body control and concentration from a redshirt sophomore on film, and like a young Michael Crabtree, he knows how to position his body to make the easy or tough grab all the same.

Current ranking: No. 38
