2013 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Select San Diego State Cornerback Leon McFadden

With the number sixty-eight pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns have selected San Diego State cornerback Leon McFadden. The Browns needed some depth at the cornerback spot behind Joe Haden, and McFadden should help shore up the position. In addition to playing cornerback, McFadden also offers return ability, which should help smooth the departure of pro bowler Josh Cribbs.

The Browns had a major coaching turnover following the 2012 season and now have a new defensive coordinator in Ray Horton. Horton will be bringing with him his 3-4 style defense, so the Browns' will have a brand new identity on the field in 2013. McFadden will step in and attempt to contribute in this defensive change-over from day one.
