NFL Draft 2010: Cleveland Browns Draft CB Joe Haden at No. 7

With the 7th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Florida CB Joe Haden.

Most Cleveland fans have to be disappointed that the Kansas City Chiefs went ahead and drafted S Eric Berry with the fifth overall pick in the draft. Berry, deemed by many as the second best defensive player of the draft, seemed to originally have no chance of falling to the Browns at No. 7. For whatever reason, over the past month or so, the mock drafts and the excitement started to build that Berry might just fall to Cleveland. Alas, it wasn't meant to be.

Instead, we'll have to go back to the mentality of accepting Haden as our pick. The funny thing is, before we started believing that Berry could fall to the Browns, the majority of Browns fans were expecting or hoping that Haden would be our pick.

My mood on that changed when we acquired CB Sheldon Brown from the Philadelphia Eagles a few weeks ago though. A week ago, the Browns front office stated that whoever they drafted would start. With the contract we gave Brown and the lock that Eric Wright seems to be as a starter, I don't see how Haden starts. Nonetheless, we can at least cross cornerback off the list of positions we are not deep in.

We still have a big void at safety though -- do we trade back up into round one to get one, and risk not getting QB Colt McCoy? We shall see.
