Brandon Coleman, TCU

Brandon Coleman is 6'6" and weighs 320 pounds. He's a three-year starter, playing 2,199 snaps in 39 games. NFLDraftbuzz.com has him projected as a sixth-rounder. Coleman played both left tackle and guard last season but almost exclusively at left tackle in 2022 and guard in 2021. He offers flexibility having played both positions throughout his collegiate career and is a player that some NFL scouts see as more of a guard at the next level. While doing my study of Coleman, I came across this interesting article, calling him the "the sleeper pick of the 2024 NFL Draft". He also made Bruce Feldman's Freak List. Here is what Feldman said about Coleman.

"Coleman, unrated by the recruiting sites coming out of high school, has an impressive 35-inch vertical jump and regularly runs 18 MPH. He squats 600 pounds, benches 400 and power-cleans 375."

Pro Football Focus has Coleman rated as their 31st best tackle, and the 230th overall prospect. The PFF grade for 2023 was not kind to Coleman, giving him a 58.0; however, he struggled through injuries. The plus side with Coleman is he has natural ability and all the traits to be good. He didn't start playing football until his junior year of high school, so he still has a lot to learn and anyone drafting this young man, just might find themselves a stud of a linemen in a couple of seasons. Coleman is one I'll be watching very closely at the NFL Combine and hoping he ends up with the Bilsl when the draft is concluded.
