The Cleveland Browns wanted to take a “dynamic” player in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Consider the mission accomplished.
The team picked wide receiver Corey Coleman out of Baylor as the No. 15 overall pick—bringing a player with phenomenal speed into the fold for new head coach Hue Jackson.
Coleman ran a 4.37-second 40-yard-dash at his pro day earlier this year, making him one of the fastest wideouts in the entire draft—only Will Fuller from Notre Dame had a faster time than Coleman.

Coleman is expected to be a top playmaker for the Browns after putting up some ridiculous numbers in college. Last season Coleman was a unanimous All-America selection while making 74 receptions for 1,363 yards and 20 touchdowns.
The speedy wideout will now try and translate that into NFL success.

The Browns sure hope he can do it.
