The Browns traded Corey Coleman, yet another terrible first-round pick

Browns need to consider trading for Khalil Mack

The Bills could've waited and hoped Coleman got cut, but there are no guarantees with that, Beane felt there's no better time than present, "I just thought now was the right opportunity to get him in here to start learning this offense as opposed to waiting any longer".

Buffalo acquired Corey Coleman from the Browns, the teams announced Sunday. 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 traded the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft for a flurry of picks and used their first selection at 15th overall on Coleman.

The No. 15 overall pick in 2016 has missed 13 games over the past two years.

Another look at the Coleman trade.

But beyond Coleman's problems on the field, he had issues outside the lines that hurt his standing with coach Hue Jackson and new general manager John Dorsey.

The most infamous moment in Coleman's short National Football League career thus far was a dropped pass late in the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a 4th and 2 that sealed the Browns' fate for a historic 0-16 season.

This is the second major trade this year between the Browns and Bills. Cleveland also owns a 2019 third-round pick from New England (DL Danny Shelton trade), a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick from Jacksonville (QB Cody Kessler trade) and a 2020 sixth-round pick from Arizona (DB Jamar Taylor trade). He caught 23 passes for 305 yards and two touchdowns, missing seven games with a hand injury.

Coleman's departure adds another wrinkle to Cleveland's muddled receiving situation. The Bills are going for potential with this move.
