Oregon State cornerback- Jordan Poyer
Dee Milliner out of Alabama should still be number one on Cleveland's radar when it comes to defensive backs.
The BCS champion CB is a junior and therefore not eligible to participate in this Saturday's matchup.
Besides Joe Haden and T.J. Ward, the Browns' secondary is in shambles.
Opposing quarterbacks have learned to stay away from Haden's side of the field in favor of assaulting slower or undersized corners.
When healthy, Ward can be one of the best strong safeties in the division. His aggressive style results in various injuries, but the real upgrade is needed at the FS position.
Let's look at the top cornerback and free safety that this team must scout heavily at the Senior Bowl.
Jordan Poyer (CB)
An arrest for an alleged bar fight back in May 2012, could cause teams to pause in making Jordan Poyer a first round selection.
However, that was before he led Oregon State with seven interceptions and gave a stellar performance in the Alamo Bowl, which included a sack.
What made this season impressive for the senior is that he was able to rise to the occasion when cornerback partner, Brandon Hardin, went down from a broken shoulder during camp in August.
A fast, aggressive, ball hawking cornerback is exactly what the Browns are looking for.
Being 6'0" and a technically sound tackler provides this Beaver alum the tools to match up against speedy outside receivers.
A bonus is that Poyer is also a superb kick/punt returner.
CBS Sports currently ranks him as the fifth best CB coming out of college.
Having a standout Senior Bowl would give Poyer some momentum to climb up a few spots on the draft board.
T.J. McDonald (FS)
One T.J. is good, would two be better in the Browns' secondary?
McDonald is best known as a physical run defender with exceptional downhill acceleration.
The Pac-12 free safety from Southern California University has the potential to be an immediate improvement over current defenders Usama Young and Eric Hagg.
In mock drafts Eric Reid may be getting all the attention, but T.J. could turn out to be the better pro.
Where Reid is high-risk, high-reward with his intensity, McDonald is a more consistent and complete player.
His naturally long 6'3", 205-pound frame also enables for effective breaking up of passes and interfering with receivers routes.
Don't be surprised to see the Trojan creep up to the first round.
