Another Top Wide Receiver to Skip 40-yard Dash

Written by Bryan Perez on February 24, 2016


Baylor WR Corey Coleman will not participate in the 40-yard dash at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine, according to NFL Network’s Rand Getlin.  Coleman’s rehab from a December sports hernia surgery has him less than 100% ready to run in front of scouts.

BP’s Take:  This is just as disappointing as the news that Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell was going to pass on a chance to run in Indianapolis.  Unlike Treadwell, Coleman doesn’t have questions about his top-end speed so I don’t think it will hurt his value all that much.  However, for the NFL Draft analyst and fan, it would have been fun to watch the potential first-round pick compete.  Coleman has a very similar skill-set and style of play as Steve Smith (Ravens).
