No. 18 safety from Georgia Bacarri Rambo delivering a crushing hit
In the trade with Miami for veteran wide receiver Davone Bess the Browns sent along their fourth and fifth-round selections. Cleveland also acquired the Dolphins fourth and seventh-round picks.

Defensive coordinator Ray Horton wants an attacking defense? A nasty piece to the puzzle will be added if he pairs Bacarri Rambo with T.J. Ward in the secondary.
Since the release of last year's starting free safety, Usama Young, the Browns are desperate for depth at the safety spot.
Collecting 16 career interceptions, posting a speedy pre-combine 4.56 second 40-yard dash time is a ball hawk that loves to deliver crisp, crushing tackles.
At 6'1" and 215 pounds, the senior has excellent reaction time, knows how to be physical without drawing flags and can break down plays quickly.
A captain on defense, the Georgia Bulldog is a leader that is athletic enough to shift over and play either of the safety roles.
Rambo's troubles come off the field where he was suspended by the team once in his junior season and again in 2012 because of failed drug tests due to the apparent "inadvertent ingestion of marijuana."
If Cleveland's decision-makers feel confident that these issues will not carry over to the NFL, then he is an immediate upgrade over any other contending player on the current roster.
