The Buffalo Bills selected wide receiver Keon Coleman with the first pick of the second round of this year's NFL draft, and the 20-year-old has quickly become a fan favorite before even stepping foot on the field.

It seems as if the Bills became enamored with the standout wide receiver during the pre-draft process, culminating in their selection of him atop the second round.

A video of of Coleman's pre-draft interview with Buffalo was shared online, and he had the whole room laughing with a joke in which he mocked his own golf skills.

"Chill at the house, golf. Bowl a little bit," said Coleman when talking about some of his hobbies.

"I ain't no—I'm Tiger WishHeCould, I'm not Tiger Woods. I wish I could putt and do all that. Them boys out there shooting five-under, I ain't doing all that. ... But I'm going to go have fun. It's controlled chaos. You're frustrated but you can't get mad, pull a muscle in your back trying to hit the ball. So it forces me stay calm and just swing, just have some fun."

Footage of Coleman's comical personality has already won over fans after he informed reporters about a deal on puffer jackets at Macy's and explained the optimal time to shop for fall and winter attire.

The Bills were clearly impressed with Coleman after vetting him ahead of the draft, and he figures to play a key role as a rookie in an offense that just parted ways with Stefon Diggs this offseason.
