Rutgers wide receiver Brandon Coleman has decided to forego his final season of eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Coleman earned All-Big East honors in 2012 with 43 receptions for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns; tying the school's single-season record. His production declined in 2013 (32 receptions, 473 yards, three touchdowns), but that can be at least partially attributed to the Scarlet Knights' play as a team during an up-and-down 6-6 regular season.

At 6-foot-6, Coleman has the size and athleticism to be an instant impact on any NFL offense. CBSSports.com currently has Coleman listed as the No. 13 wide receiver in the 2014 class and the junior is projected as a third round selection.

According to Rutgers, Coleman is one semester from earning his degree. He will play his final game as a Scarlet Knight in the Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame on Dec. 28. For predictions and matchups to watch, check out the Pinstripe Bowl Preview.
