Longtime beat writer Tony Grossi called the former Baylor wideout the "real deal" at training camp, where Coleman is working with the first team as one of four drafted rookie wideouts.
"He can score the ball," said associate head coach on offense Pep Hamilton, per the team's official website. "He caught a hitch route down inside the red zone area, he made two guys miss and he scored the football. That's what we're going to need him to do. We need a big-play threat or two or three on the perimeter, and we feel like he's the guy who can do those things."
Cleveland coach Hue Jackson recently praised Coleman for his ability to "stack good days together," the story said. It went on to say: The predraft concern with Coleman was his lack of extensive route-running in Baylor's up-tempo spread offense. Coleman spent time this summer working with quarterback Robert Griffin III to get ahead of the curve. Coleman's fantasy value will take a hit with the return of Josh Gordon, assuming he can make it all the way back from suspension for Week 5. Currently Coleman is 48th on our list with an ADP of the late eighth round.
