Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Cornerback Joe Haden: The secondary was abysmal last season. The Browns missed safety Eric Berry by two picks, but they got the best cornerback in the draft. The Browns are not discouraged by a slow 40-yard dash time at the combine. He should be an immediate starter at right corner. He is a better tackler than Brandon McDonald, who started 10 games last season.
A closer look at the Browns' picks: Round 1/7 -- Joe Haden, CB, 5-11, 193, Florida, The Browns ranked 29th in the NFL in pass defense last season. They traded for CB Sheldon Brown, but wanted more. When safety Eric Berry went fifth, the Browns took the best corner in the draft two picks later. - by The Sports Xchange
