The Buffalo Bills entered the 2024 NFL draft in dire need of a receiver after trading away Stefon Diggs and losing Gabe Davis to free agency this offseason. They found one in the form of Florida State wideout Keon Coleman, picking him with the 33rd pick. The young pass-catcher is an athletic marvel who can out-jump just about everybody but will need some seasoning at the NFL level to consistently create separation.

Coleman is also a delightful personality who immediately endeared himself to the Buffalo community. He spent much of his first Bills press conference consulting with reporters about where to find the best deal on a winter jacket. He is also a big WWE fan, as evidenced by a video posted by the team's official X account on Tuesday morning.

Coleman was taking a tour of his new workplace and was shown a cryotherapy chamber. Upon realizing smoke spills out from the chamber after exiting, the second-round pick insisted they turn all the lights off so he can reenact the Undertaker entrance.

What a fun and genuine moment. Tremendous video editing, too. Clearly everybody thought he was joking at first and then, boom, cut to them actually doing it. Great work all around.

The Bills clearly have a great personality in Coleman. He should be a resounding fan favorite in short order. The franchise has to hope that he's ready to deliver immediately, though. Behind the former Seminole the depth chart is worryingly thin and the biggest name is Curtis Samuel. Josh Allen is maybe the best do-it-all quarterback in the game but even he needs a bit of help sometimes. Coleman will be relied upon to produce as soon as he steps on the field.

We'll find out in September if he's ready to do so. Until then we can look forward to more Undertaker-themed videos. Hopefully.
