Who Will Be the Cleveland Browns' Starting CB Opposite Joe Haden in 2013?

Ray Horton's attacking 3-4 defense figures to help out the young Cleveland Browns secondary in 2013.

Despite that added assistance, the Browns must still find a competent corner to start opposite of Joe Haden at right cornerback.

Third-round pick Leon McFadden could be the front-runner after the team's recent investment in him. Corners sometimes take longer to be NFL-ready than some other positions, so we won't crown him the starter just yet.

Who else is there on their roster, or not on their roster, who could challenge the rookie for snaps this season?

There is always the possibility of a trade or free agent being signed. Young and promising cornerbacks may get caught up in the numbers game, allowing the Browns to swoop in and make a deal.

Sophomore defensive back Johnson Bademosi played some corner in spot relief last season and Buster Skrine is battle-tested as well.

Free-agent acquisition Chris Owens could also be in the mix.

Let's take a look at who will most likely come away with the starting spot once opening day comes around. You might be surprised with who you'll find at the top.
