Cleveland Browns: Just how bad have first-round picks been?

Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills for draft pick

Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills for draft pick

Cleveland traded Corey Coleman, the team's first round pick in 2016, to the Buffalo Bills for a 7th round pick in 2020. The teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning.

To this point in his career, the 15th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft has failed to live up to his draft hype. He has 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns in his two-year career. "I'm sure there is things that went well there". "So it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete".

The Bills have added a wide receiver.




"He hasn't played a 16-game season yet in two years", Beane said. But the Browns also have a promising rookie in Antonio Callaway, and there's still the chance they could sign free agent Dez Bryant.

Returning starter Zay Jones is coming off right knee and shoulder surgery and was cleared for practice for the first time Sunday. Beane said, "Ideally guys in the first round don't take so long and there's various reasons whether it's injuries or whether it's the system, whether it's just not a good fit for where you're at, there's a lot reasons. He's gotta come in here and earn it whether it's a starting job or just a job on the 53". "This is low risk, and we'll see what happens". The Cleveland Browns had three first round picks last year-Myles Garrett, Jabrill Peppers, and David Njoku-who are now the most experienced first round picks on the roster. The Browns acquired that pick when the Eagles traded up to draft quarterback Carson Wentz.
