No. 2 prospect the Jaguars can pick in the NFL Draft to address a need: Keon Coleman, WR
At first sight, it doesn't look like receiver will be a need for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2024 due to the presence of Zay Jones, Christian Kirk, and Calvin Ridley. However, it's not a given that Ridley will re-sign and Jamal Agnew, No. 4 on the depth chart, is set to become a free agent, so it would be a good idea to have a plan in place if either Ridley or Agnew (or both) leave next offseason.
The Jags would love to land Marvin Harrison Jr., but he's set to go in the top 5 and they'll pick in the late 20s. Trading down wouldn't be a realistic possibility but there will still be several intriguing options when they're on the clock, including Keon Coleman of Florida State.
Coleman started his collegiate career at Michigan State but entered the transfer portal earlier this year. He took a visit to both Ole Miss and Florida State before choosing the Seminoles. So far this season, he's racked up 38 receptions for 538 yards with nine touchdowns.
At 6-4, Coleman isn't a burner but he runs solid routes and has the size to be a weapon in the red zone. Moreover, he's a willing blocker in the running game, one underrated trait in wide receivers. Derrick Klassen of Bleacher Report likes what Coleman brings to the table.
"He's a quick, concise route-runner relative to his size, too. Considering Coleman will also only be 20 years old come draft day, it's so easy to buy into his ceiling."
The bottom line is that the Jaguars could have bigger needs than wide receiver next season. However, they shouldn't pass up the chance to pick Coleman if he's available when they're on the clock.
