Joe Haden had a great rookie season in 2010 hauling in six interceptions (via ESPN) and consistently shutting down the opponent's No. 1 receiver.
In 2011, Haden took a little step back. Don't get me wrong, he still had a good season by any cornerback's standards. However, he had zero interceptions, as he dropped several balls that hit him in both hands. He also allowed more than a few big plays by slipping several times.
For a Browns team that struggled to get defensive turnovers last year, Haden needs to lead the charge and pick off several balls this year.
Haden has the potential to be a top-three corner in the NFL. He is one of the best tacklers on the team; he just needs to create more turnovers like a star corner should.
Look for Haden to establish himself and be an all-around corner this season.
