According to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns find Florida cornerback Joe Haden to be a “very attractive” draft prospect and are expected to make upgrading their secondary a priority this offseason.
The Browns reportedly believe they have just two starting-caliber defensive backs on the roster: left corner Eric Wright and strong safety Abram Elam.
Brandon McDonald and Mike Adams, who both saw starts at right cornerback last year, are considered replaceable. McDonald is a poor tackler, while Adams lacks elite physical attributes.
Incumbent free safety Brodney Pool’s NFL future is up in the air due to concussions.
Haden was the best cover corner in all of college football last year and has drawn comparisons to Darrelle Revis because he can tackle and make plays on the ball as well as shut down No. 1 receivers.
The Browns choose No. 7 overall this April.
