Its officially another failed first round pick for the Cleveland Browns, as they shipped 2016 first round draft pick (fifteenth overall) wide receiver Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills, and got back a 2020 seventh round pick in return. Corey Coleman had an impressive start to his NFL career, catching 33 balls for 413 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie, but he struggled to stay healthy and slid down the suddenly loaded depth chart before being traded. Everyone is killing the Browns for the Corey Coleman selection and for giving up on him after just two seasons, but the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is full of disappointing players outside of the star studded top five, so the Browns are not alone. However, the Corey Coleman pick is one of the draft picks that the Browns acquired when they traded down and allowed the Eagles to select Carson Wentz, and in hindsight the Browns probably should have just selected Wentz. Trading Corey Coleman might actually be good news for Browns fans, I heard that the Browns would not be dumping Coleman unless they were certain Josh Gordon would be returning to the field shortly, so this could be a sign that Gordon will be ready for the season opener which was in question after he left the team a few weeks ago to receive further treatment.
The Bills wide receiver desperate Bills get a former first round pick, who does have talent, and who has produced when he is healthy and on the field. The Bills drafted big armed quarterback Josh Allen in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but they have very few weapons in the passing game, and without pass catchers Allen has no shot at being successful. The Bills can take a look at Corey Coleman, a potential deep threat for Allen who is just 24-years-old, and if Coleman is truly a bust who cannot make the Bills roster they only lose a seventh round pick in 2020.
