With the ‘bust’ label almost officially placed on Corey Coleman, the former first round pick from 2016 was dealt to the receiver-needy Buffalo Bills, which could give him a chance to shine with new (even more disgusting) scenery. With the head of the ‘Tub Club’ (Kelvin Benjamin) ahead of him on the depth chart, Coleman has a chance to become a target hog in an offense that is in dire need of perimeter talent.
Talent has never been the issue with the former Baylor Bear. It’s been his strange ability to break his hand twice during his first two seasons that’s really held him back. Coleman is a freak athlete, as he ran a 4.37 40 at his Pro Day, coupled with a 40.5 inch vertical at the combine. If any of the three stooges on Buffalo’s quarterback depth chart can put together a decent season, Coleman could overtake Benjamin as the target hog in this offense. As of right now, The Wolf has Benjamin ranked as his WR44 and Coleman bumped up all the way up to WR59 (149 overall), which is +55(!) on the overall ECR. Clearly the targets will be up for grabs in this putrid offense, now it’s time for one of these fragile, under-performing wide outs to take advantage of this juice situation.
