Strengths

Corey Coleman is a natural athlete that uses his natural abilities to the max.  Coleman has speed that has the chance to change a game in one play. He uses this to turn the short routes into big plays that move the chains. Effortless stride that eats up yards quickly and gets him past defenders. Also displays the ability to be a number one receiver despite smaller stature. Has strong hands that snatch the ball and refuse to let it go. Made in the mold of Steve Smith and Antonio Brown. Is able to take the top off a defense and win jump balls over corners. Lower body is explosive with a huge broad jump and vertical. This allows him to high point the ball and to explode out of cuts. Also displays the elusiveness to make plays out of screens and turn slants into long touchdowns. Build is also solid to help with the durability to survive plays over the middle.

Weaknesses

Short stature keeps him from being a solid red-zone target. Also a smaller receiver that can get hurt due to the smaller stature. Had a limited route tree at Baylor so he will face learning curve in the NFL as he tries to learn all of the routes in an NFL offense. Also could be the victim of a spread offense that relied heavily on no huddle and short routes. Will need to develop his longer routes to be able to beat corners and safeties when running post routes and others deep down field. Will also face a learning curve in learning the verbage of an NFL offense and the audibles that are run in these complex schemes.
