But as the story said, Coleman is a tier below the Giants’ top three receivers but, as a former first-round pick playing for his fourth team, has a higher profile than the many undrafted receivers bidding for a roster spot. He has cut around the field with no hint of last year’s ACL surgery.
New York Giants WR Corey Coleman suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Giants are now dealing with multiple injuries at the position after Sterling Shepard dislocated his thumb on Thursday as well. But Coleman's injury is very unfortunate as he was competing for the third or fourth wide receiver role on the Giants behind Shepard, Golden Tate and, at the very least, battling with Cody Latimer. This now opens the door for fifth-round pick Darius Slayton to push for one of the last spots on the depth chart. An unfortunate setback for the former first-round pick.
The author said Coleman is the most intriguing, given his pedigree (2016 first-round pick of the Browns) and skill set. He showed flashes last season and if he has matured, maybe the Giants have something. Speedster Slayton, a fifth-round pick from Auburn, looked quite good in the spring but it is tough for rookies to make much of an impact. Coleman has a chance to be the teams WR3.
