Corey Coleman trade shows how bad Browns recent draft history has been
The Cleveland Browns traded wide receiver Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday for essentially nothing a 2020 seventh-round pick.
The Browns gave up on Coleman just two years after taking him 16th overall in the 2016 draft. And as ESPN’s Field Yates pointed out, the Browns have had a string of first-round busts in recent years.
Cover your eyes, this is ugly:

At least, defensive end Myles Garrett, last year’s No. 1 overall pick, looks like a star.
But it’s not a surprise the Browns went 1-31 over the last two seasons.
