Florida State WR Keon Coleman, 6-foot-4 215 pounds

When you look at the recent wide receivers that the Rams targeted, you could see them looking for some size. They recently kicked the tires on WR Mike Evans before he resigned with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Evans stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs 231 pounds. That is huge for a veteran NFL wide receiver. But his size could hint at what the Rams may be looking for in this upcoming draft. The first guy who jumps out at me and is projected to be available on day two is rookie WR prospect Keon Coleman, who is coming out of Florida State University.

Coleman is 6-foot-4 and weighs a burly 215 pounds. He certainly has the stature of a big target for QB Matthew Stafford and this offense. In the 2023 season, Coleman had 50 receptions for 658 yards while adding 11 touchdowns. His receptions and yards might not jump out at you. His touchdowns do, which shows he could be a big target, especially in the red zone, which will keep the defense on their toes. Sean McVay and the Rams offense wouldn't be looking for Coleman to go out and do too much. If he could replicate those 2023 numbers in the pros, he would be a viable 3-4 option for a well-talented offense.

North Carolina WR Devontez Walker, 6-foot-3 200 pounds

We all know HC Sean McVay likes having some guys that can take the top off the defense, and WR Devontez Walker could be an option for that role. Walker is 6-foot-3 and weighs 200 pounds. Best of all, despite his size, he is a definition of a speed threat. Walker runs a fast 4.36-second 40-yard dash time, which is quick to begin with. But when you put him on the football field with his height, that is an impressive offensive weapon that creates nightmares for defensive coordinators and defensive backs. He put up 41 receptions for 699 yards and 7 touchdowns. Most importantly, he averaged 17.0 yards per catch.

During his final college season, he didn't have eye-popping stats, but he showed he could be a homerun threat, which every team needs. Also, the 2022 season showed more of what he is capable of, as he had 58 catches for 921 yards and 11 touchdowns. He can be an excellent weapon behind Kupp and Nacua, so keep an eye on him as a target if he is still on the board on day two.
