NFL Mock Draft 2016 First Round 1.0
25th overall- Corey Coleman– WR- Baylor- Pittsburgh Steelers
With the suspension of Martavis Bryant wide receiver quickly rose to the top of the Steelers needs list. Enter Corey Coleman who has the potential to eventually be the jewel of this wide receiver class once all is said and done. He’s not a world class speed guy, but plenty of speed to be dangerous at the next level. His real contribution is in his RAC ability. That’s where his claim to fame will come from. They have Sammie Coates to play the split end spot opposite Antonio Brown, and Darius Heyward-Bey to stretch the field. Coleman can play the slot as a joker type. He can line up anywhere including in the backfield. He will also contribute as a returner. Needs to work on his route running as he’s your typical spread wide receiver who ran 4 routes in college. There should be no problems there as he has all the ability to run any route known to man. He also has a very good pair of hands on him and plucks the ball away from his body. Should be a nice toy for Offensive coordinator Todd Haley to play around with.
