New York Giants wide receiver Corey Coleman, who entered the league as a member of the Cleveland Browns, has not been able to realize his full potential at the NFL level and has not yet recreated the success he had at Balor.

However, with Odell Beckham Jr. now playing for Coleman’s former team, he has the opportunity to step up and potentially earn a starting outside role in 2019.

There were flashes of Coleman’s talent last season, particularly down the stretch, but now the Giants need for him to put it all together.

“It is a big opportunity, especially him being in the offseason program with us. He’s getting the whole gamut if you will: from the very first install to the whole, you know, all the way through,” wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert told reporters earlier this week. “Last year when he came in we were his fourth offense he’s been in, in maybe the span of three months. Now it’s just our offense the whole time so he can grasp what we’re doing and have a solid contribution. He’s doing well this year. He’s doing much better than he did last year.”

Tolbert believes Coleman still possesses first-round talent and with a little consistency, the hope is that he finds a level of comfort and plays up to his ability.

“He has the skill set; the speed, the hands. He’s never played multiple positions before he got here. That’s the thing we are trying to get him to install. We’re trying to get him to play all the positions. Once he gets that down, his skill set should take over,” Tolbert added.

A year ago, Coleman, who can also serve as a return man, was low on the depth chart. Here in 2019, he not only has the opportunity to erase the distance between himself and other receivers, but establish himself as one of the Giants’ most important offensive weapons.
