2012 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Draft CB Trevin Wade at No. 245 Overall

Try to ignore the fact that Trevin Wade (No. 24) is giving up a touchdown here.

You don't think of getting too many high-profile prospects in the seventh round, but that might be a different story with the Cleveland Browns' first of two seventh-round draft picks. With the 245th pick overall, the Browns selected cornerback Trevin Wade out of Arizona.

Wade was projected to go somewhere around the third round, and with the team possibly considering a shift of Sheldon Brown to safety and Mike Adams not returning, Wade could have a chance to make an impact in training camp.

From NFL.com:

Strengths
Wade possesses many key traits that cover corners need to succeed at the next level, including height, hip mobility, fluidity in his backpedal and an understanding of how to play the line of scrimmage to disrupt route timing.

Weaknesses
Wade has consistency issues after an entire junior year of getting beat up and down the field and looking uninspired in his play. Teams will bank on getting the player who had a strong sophomore campaign and decent senior year, but he can't afford to take plays off or perform the way he did in his junior year, when he was an entirely different and undraftable player.

What do you think about the Browns picking Wade?
