One wide receiver who might be selected in the middle of the first round and have an instant impact for a playoff contender is Florida State’s Keon Coleman.

Coleman succeeded in doing so through Florida State’s transfer site, which improved his draft standing.

LSU possesses Brian Nabers and Malik Nabers, two possible first-round wideouts Thomas Jr.

NFL clubs shouldn’t undervalue Thomas and his ability to be a big player in his first season, even if Nabers will likely be given more weight in talks about the top 10.

Due to the exceptional potential at wide receiver, a few players will go unnoticed.

Coleman could be the ideal illustration of a wide receiver selected third or fourth in April who goes on to become one of the most effective rookie pass catchers.

As Florida State went through the ACC unbeaten, he emerged as the team’s top wide receiver and caused a stir in the first-round conversation.

With 50 catches for 658 yards, the 20-year-old hit the end zone 11 times.

While those figures are impressive, it’s possible that NFL scouts are more interested in his measurables. Coleman weighs 215 pounds and is described as 6’4″.

Given that he is among the draft class’s most physically gifted athletes, a contender to pick him ahead of one of the quicker pass-catchers scheduled to play in the opening round.

When the Los Angeles Chargers selected Quentin Johnston over Jordan Addison and Zay Flowers in the previous season, they opted for toughness over speed.

A club hoping to get much more out of Coleman than the Chargers did with Johnston (36 receptions, 414 yards, 2 touchdowns) in his first season may make a similar decision between picks Nos. 15 and 25.

Two more wide receivers from LSU are expected to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft.

With Malik Nabers in front of him, Thomas is the lesser of the two players. Thomas was not selected in the top 50 by the Athletics draft staff, who regarded Nabers as their No. 11 overall prospect.

Thanks to his performance for Brian Kelly’s club this season, Thomas may easily make it into the first round conversation. He scored 15 times while catching 60 passes for 1,079 yards for the Jayden Daniels-led team.

His breakthrough season ought to make him a target for teams in the first round’s bottom ten choices.

Though Thomas won’t come close to matching Nabers in the first round, he may be a solid second or third target promptly for a team vying for the playoffs.
