Coleman says rookie WRs 'hungry' to be great

The Browns top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft says he and his fellow rookie wide receiver draft picks are 'hungry' to prove they belong in the NFL.

BEREA,Ohio--Corey Coleman doesn't think having four rookie wide receivers is a disadvantage. Rather, Coleman thinks the rookies are more motivated to show and prove that they can play at the next level.

"It's great because we're all so really hungry to play and get our foot in the door and ready to play on the big stage," Coleman said at the recent minicamp. "By us coming to practice every day and competing, I think it makes every body better.

"That's what  you want to have is a bunch of young receivers who want to be great."

Coleman was the first of four wide receivers the Browns selected in the 2016 NFL Draft. Coleman was drafted in the first-round, while Ricardo Louis (4th), Rashard Higgins (5th) and Jordan Payton (5th) were also selected in the draft.
