2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Brandon Coleman

Brandon Coleman (OL – TCU)

6’6” – 320 lbs.

Background:

Brandon Coleman originally attended Trinity Valley Community College before arriving at TCU in 2020. Played right tackle for four games that season (zero starts). He then took over as the team’s starting right guard early in the following season, finishing with eight starts overall, during which time he did not allow a sack. Moved to left tackle the following year, with just three sacks allowed over 15 starts. Started this season as a left guard (four starts), then kicked back out to left tackle for the final seven games of the year, allowing zero sacks on the season.

Positives:

Has extensive experience at both left tackle and left guard (34 starts). Very big, thickly-built lineman. Appears to have good power in his hands to jolt defenders on contact. Shows some understanding of positioning and can rely on his size and lower-body strength to wall off opponents in the run game. Adequate straight-line speed in a short area to climb to the second level; not always able to successfully engage but creates disruption. Flashes the ability to bend at the knees and execute short, choppy steps in his kick slide. Active with his punch in pass protection with what looks like good placement and the ability to reset his hands. Flashes some power to jolt opponents. Lower-body strength is good, allowing him to anchor against power. Works hard to get out in space and engage defenders in the screen game.

Negatives:

His technique isn’t where it probably should be for a three-year starter and athletic limitations lead to a lot of sloppy reps. Leverage can be an issue. Pronounced tendency to lower his head and lunge at opponents, leading to whiffs. Too many snaps where he’s throwing his weight around rather than engaging with form. Awareness in pass protection can be an issue. Lateral quickness is below average for a tackle; struggles to protect the edge against speed, with minimal range. Once he gets his feet set, struggles to get moving again. Often needs to abandon his technique to have a shot at protecting the edge. Looks susceptible to spins back inside.

Summary:

A big-bodied lineman with some natural strength and experience at both tackle and guard, but who doesn’t play with the technique and balance needed to enjoy consistent success at the next level. Mostly started at left tackle in recent years but his limited athleticism will probably necessitate a move inside at the next level where his shortcomings could be masked more effectively. Looks like a late-round developmental/swing reserve.

Projection: Round 6/Round 7
