Adding Paul Kruger, Quentin Groves and Desmond Bryant via free agency helps to solidify Cleveland's front seven. Now it is cornerback that catapults to the top of coordinator Ray Horton's defensive needs list.
Two of the five teams that draft ahead of the Browns had legitimate concerns in their secondary before the market opened up on March 12.
The Eagles select fourth and may be turning their attention towards offense because of their free-agent signings.
Cornerback Bradley Fletcher, safety Patrick Chung, defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga and linebacker Jason Phillips already signifies a heavy investment on defense.
Detroit's starting left tackle, Jeff Backus, retired on March 14 and that means they require a top-tier LT to protect quarterback Matt Stafford.
On defense the Lions retained cornerback Chris Houston and safety Louis Delmas. Detroit also agreed to terms with now former Houston Texans safety Glover Quin.
Taking care of the secondary may suggest that the Lions turn the focus of their fifth overall draft pick to pass rush.
Those above situations leaves Alabama standout CB Dee Milliner all alone for Browns CEO Joe Banner to gobble up.
The club better hope that is the case, especially since they failed to bring aboard big names like Keenan Lewis, Antoine Cason or Aqib Talib to fill the role.
Fox Sports analyst Alex Marvez reported that the Browns met with soon to be 30-year-old corner Brent Grimes last week. That would typically be great news, however, Grimes missed 15 games in 2012 from a torn Achilles.
This is by no means a done deal as the Dolphins have expressed interest and the Falcons, his team for the previous six seasons, are pushing hard for a return to Atlanta.
Even if the Philadelphia, PA native chooses Cleveland, does the front office really want to depend on an aging player coming off of a severe injury?
Hopefully for Browns fans the answer is no. At best Grimes should be considered a stopgap that gives time for their sixth overall draft pick to develop.
Yes, commissioner Roger Goodell shall announce Dee Milliner's name to the world as the newest member of the Cleveland Browns.
The national champion possesses the size, speed and overall athleticism to solve Cleveland's outside corner problem from day one.
This stud cornerback silenced critics that questioned his speed at the scouting combine by posting a 4.37 second 40-yard dash time.
The 6'1", 199-pound junior is not afraid to initiate contact in defending against the run and makes opposing quarterbacks pay if challenging him through the air (just ask Notre Dame).
Earning a unanimous vote to first-team All-SEC in 2012, Milliner led the conference with 22 passes defended, posted four tackles for loss and recorded two interceptions.
Can the Browns afford not to select him?
