7. Corey Coleman, WR, New York Giants
Corey Coleman was the only receiver selected before Will Fuller in the 2016 NFL Draft, but have their careers been very different since then. After a promising rookie year, in which Coleman caught 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns, the 24-year old Baylor product saw himself sinking on the Cleveland Browns depth chart due to injuries and a knack for dropping passes.
Coleman then got traded to the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 preseason, was cut, and then signed with the New York Giants and played eight games in 2018.
Coleman caught five passes out of eight targets (62.5-percent) for 71 yards with the Giants. His special teams play was what kept him on the roster, as he racked up a healthy 598 yards on 23 kick returns. Don’t forget, Coleman also threw in a nice 51-yard return as well.
Coleman offers the Texans with depth at the outside receiver position, and speed to replicate Fuller in case of an injury. Coleman could also fill in as a return man which is a role the Texans don’t have locked in going into the offseason.
Although Coleman is a restricted free agent (meaning the Giants could match any offer), he should be easy to pry away from the team for a good value close to $2 million per year.
