Coleman says he wants to "be great"

Browns first-round draft choice Corey Coleman says he wants to "be great" in his NFL career.

Browns first-round draft pick Corey Coleman spoke at the first day of minicamp and said he is not going to be satisfied with being just an average wide receiver in the NFL.

Coleman said he talked to fellow Baylor alum and NFL wide receiver Kendall Wright about making the transition to the NFL.

"He just said, it's going to be hard," Coleman said. "Nothing is easy. I just have to go in with an open mind.

"I want to be great so I'm just priding myself on learning this playbook and getting everything together."

Coleman has been criticized by some that he isn't a great route runner, having not needed to be a precise route runner at Baylor. However, Coleman said he ran an offense in high school that was more similar to the type of routes he is asked to run with the Browns. 

"My high school ran a lot of NFL routes so I'm used to the route tree," he said. So its not a big problem, just polishing up and make sure everything is crisp and nice."
