NFL Mock Draft 2013: Could Browns team Joe Haden with another impact corner in the secondary?

Wesley Hitt

What will Cleveland do if they decide to stick with Brandon Weeden for another year?

New Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski is known for his offensive prowess, but will his first draft pick as the top dawg be for defense? As of right now, the draft lacks impact offensive talent, especially when compared to players on the defensive side. With Cleveland picking sixth, they could still elect to take a defensive player rather than help out their 25th-ranked offense.

If they do go for that side of the ball, Dane Brugler of CBS Sports thinks that Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner would be a solid fit opposite of Joe Haden.

Although they'll have a new head coach and GM, the Browns will probably give Brandon Weeden another year at quarterback, mostly because there aren't many options out there. The biggest need for Cleveland is in the secondary, lacking an impact corner opposite Joe Haden.

Haden had three interceptions and 10 pass deflections in 11 games. Opposite of him was 33-year-old Sheldon Brown, which gives some validity to the idea of Cleveland upgrading that position for the future. Milliner is the top secondary prospect in this year's draft.
