Bills Keon Coleman’s Personality is Already Well-Liked in Buffalo

With the departure of Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans this offseason along with Gabriel Davis to the Jacksonville Jaguars, wide receiver was a must-need in the NFL Draft for the Buffalo Bills. General manager Brandon Beane and his team have worked extremely hard to ensure this position was filled and a major void was not apparent as the team heads into the summer workouts.

Buffalo used their second round draft selection (pick 33) on Florida State wide receiver Keon Coleman. The 20-year-old athletic freak will provide the Bills with a threat on offense, especially in the red zone with his 6’3″, 215 pound body frame.

What was even more impressive than his size was the introductory press conference that Coleman did on Saturday. There is no question that the Buffalo Bills’ fanbase and reporters are extremely challenging, with many athletes just not fitting into the mold and expectations that these two groups want.

For any 20-year-old, living up to the expectations, and being in the spotlight can be a daunting task, but for Coleman it seems as if he is already winning the fanbase and reporters over with his strong likeable personality.

Before answering any questions posed by reporters, Coleman went into immense detail about his love for shopping at Macy’s and how he and his mother buy clothes a season or two before in order to save money.

Take a listen to the interaction but needless to say that everyone was smiling, laughing, and just enjoying this pure interaction. At one point Coleman even asked if the microphone was on and just continued to display a positive and exciting vibe. He seems to be ready to go and is not afraid to speak his mind on topics that mean a lot to him and his family.

Coleman is coming off of a solid season capturing 50 receptions for 658 yards and 11 touchdowns. He averaged 13.2 yards per reception in 2023 and his Combine measurables are exactly what is needed with the loss of two key receivers in Buffalo.

There are some questions as to if he will be ready to make a day one impact on the football field due to only having started 23 career games in college. If one turns on the tape you will see that he is exactly what the team needs to fill the key void left at receiver and his red zone impact will be one to watch in 2024 with quarterback Josh Allen leading the way.

For as young as Coleman is, he will have a decade plus of action on Sundays if he can stay healthy and produce. His personality and being well-liked by the media and fans already will go a long way in a city that just continues to critique their football team and athletes every second that they get.
