Rutgers WR Brandon Coleman to enter 2014 NFL Draft

Rutgers wide receiver Brandon Coleman on Saturday announced his intention to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

A redshirt junior, Coleman put himself on scouts' radars after totaling 43 receptions for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, but he has not come close to matching those totals this year. With the Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame still to come, Coleman has 32 receptions for 473 yards and three touchdowns.

Coleman underwent knee surgery in the offseason, but told that he is "feeling fine" and that the injury is not responsible for his drop in production.

"It's just lack of execution on my part, mainly," Coleman said. "I'm just learning from it and keep moving forward."

Former Scarlet Knights standout and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood endorsed Coleman (6-foot-6, 220 pounds) as a viable pro prospect for his physical attributes.

"He's a beast," Underwood said. "He could play in the NFL right now with his size alone."
