The Browns struck gold in the 2010 Draft when they selected cornerback Joe Haden and safety T.J Ward.
Haden will be the leader of the Browns' secondary for years to come, and demonstrated last season that he has the ability to be a true lock-down corner, snagging 6 interceptions; the fifth most in the NFL.
Ward, on the other hand, is a classic strong safety. He punished all receivers who dared to cross his path last season, wracking up 123 tackles and making quite an impression along the way. His bone-crushing hits terrified opponents and got him $15,000 worth of fines from the NFL.
These two made an immediate impact in 2010, as the Browns ranked 18th in pass defense, allowing 220.7 yards through the air. That was a huge jump from when they ranked 29th in the league in 2009, allowing 244.7 yards without the tandem of Haden and Ward.
With the addition of safety Usama Young, as well as the veteran presence of Sheldon Brown, this secondary looks to only get better in 2011.
