Cleveland Browns take T.J. Ward 38th overall

The Cleveland Browns made a surprise pick with the 38th overall selection in the 2010 NFL draft, taking Oregon safety T.J. Ward.

Ward’s junior year, 2008, was his only full season as a starter. He was a backup as a freshman and sophomore, and his senior season was cut short by injury. In fact, Ward has a long history of knee and ankle injuries, which is why it’s a bit of a surprise that he went as high as he did.

Many observers thought the Browns would take a quarterback, either Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen or Texas’s Colt McCoy. But Holmgren meant it when he said he didn’t think much of Clausen.

So instead of a quarterback, the Browns got a safety who will be a starter if he’s healthy. The only problem is that’s a pretty big “if.”

    Looks to me like he is changing the dynamic of this team. I always viewed the defense as being soft. Adding Sheldon Brown, TJ Ward, and Joe Haden adds guys that not only make plays, but are all fierce hitters. May have been a bit of a reach, but Ward is a very solid pick.

    I can only guess that English isn’t funi’s first language. That, or he just doesn’t care how he expresses his ignorance.
