No. 6 – Corey Coleman
Many people forget that Corey Coleman was the No. 15 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. After two non-descript seasons with Cleveland, Coleman was traded to the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 training camp. Coleman lasted until the end of training camp, when the Bill cut him. A short stint with the New England Patriots after which he was picked up by the New York Giants in October. with injuries impacting Big Blue’s receiving corps, Coleman became a serviceable option.
According to Pro Football Reference, Coleman played in eight games for the New York Giants with one start. He had only five catches, but was a factor on kick-off returns, averaging 26.0 yards per return. For a guy who has never played in more than 10 games in an NFL season, how much can we expect?
Well, expectations should be fairly low for Coleman coming into training camp, as he appears buried on the depth chart below a number of other options. But he has shown special teams acumen, and there are much worse depth options out there. Coleman represents a low-risk, high-reward option for the G-Men, so let’s keep an open mind as we head into training camp.
