05/13/14 - New Orleans Saints announce 2014 rookie free agent class: Brandon Coleman – Wide Receiver, Rutgers (6-6, 225): Coleman started 27-of-39 games at Rutgers and caught 94 passes for 1,808 yards (19.2 avg.) and 20 touchdowns, tying the Scarlet Knights’ school record for scoring grabs. In 2013, he finished second on the team in receiving with 34 grabs for 538 yards (15.8 avg.) with four touchdowns, as 12 of his grabs were for 20 yards or longer. In 2012, he was a second-team All-Big East Conference choice as he made 43 receptions for 718 yards (16.7 avg.) and tied the school record with 10 touchdown grabs. - New Orleans Saints
04/29/14 - Five players who should be on Chicago's draft radar: WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers: Chicago has arguably the best wide receiver duo in the league with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, but depth behind them could be addressed. Coleman led the Rutgers in receiving as a sophomore in 2012 with 718 yards and 10 touchdowns, earning Second Team All-Big East honors. He returned for his junior season with hype as a possible high draft pick, but he was slowed due to offseason knee surgery and his production dropped across the board. Coleman is in the same mold as Marshall and Jeffery with his size and long-striding speed, but he is still raw and doesn't consistently play up to his size. While still developing in several areas, he has the power forward size and promise as a pass catcher to be stashed on the Bears roster and develop into Marshall's eventual replacement. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/21/14 - Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers: As loaded as this class of wide receiver prospects is, it will be tough for the Eagles to find a suitable replacement for DeSean Jackson. And it wouldn't be surprising if they went in a different direction altogether and targeted a bigger target for Kelly's offense like Coleman. He has shown flashes of a Josh Gordon clone with the size and long-striding speed, but he isn't quite the same caliber of athlete and doesn't consistently play up to his size. Coleman was slowed last season due to offseason knee surgery and he's still developing in several areas, but he has the power forward size and promise as a pass-catcher to develop into a NFL starter. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/14/13 - Brandon Coleman Declares for 2014 NFL Draft...Coleman is Second in RU History with 19 Career Receiving Touchdowns...Rutgers redshirt junior wide receiver Brandon Coleman (Accokeek, Md.) has elected to forego his final year of eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Coleman is the seventh player since 2008 at Rutgers to leave school early and enter the NFL Draft. Coleman is set to play his final game as a Scarlet Knight December 28 in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame. One ofColeman’s signature moments in Scarlet came in the 2011 New Era Pinstripe Bowl as he hauled in an 86-yard touchdown pass from Chas Dodd in the fourth quarter to secure a 27-13 victory over Iowa State.
The 6-foot-6 Coleman is second in school history with 19 career receiving touchdowns. In 38 career games and 26 starts at wide receiver, Coleman has 92 career receptions for 1,743 yards. He is averaging 18.9 yards per reception in his career. Coleman has three of the 10 longest receptions in school history (92, 86, 85). In 2012, he was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selectionafter totaling 43 receptions for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 10 touchdown receptions tied a school single-season record. Coleman is a two-time conference all-academic team selection and is one semester away from earning his degree. - Rutgers football
10/10/13 - Scouting the Rutgers passing game: Gary Nova has been at his best against the best this season, which bodes well for the team heading into the matchup with Louisville. On the other hand, the Cardinals enter the week having allowed fewer than 150 yards passing per game to rank fourth in the NCAA in that category. - The Sports Xchange
