Cleveland Browns: The 2016 cornerbacks
Joe Haden was drafted by the Browns in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft and has developed into one of the league’s best. Haden’s 2015 season was marred by injury and inconsistent play. He is coming off of ankle surgery and is believed to be ready by the beginning of the season, maybe even the preseason.
With the return of defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who he developed the most under, could see a return to Pro Bowl form for the cornerback.
Odds Haden makes the team: 100 percent.
Justin Gilbert was drafted in 2014 with the No. 8 overall pick to work opposite Joe Haden and make the defensive backfield one of the most formidable in the NFL for years to come. Although he has exceptional physical abilities he never even scratched his potential. He has consistently showed up late for meetings and poor performance on the practice led to him seeing very little time on the field.
Hopefully, Horton will be able to save what is left of Gilbert’s career and help him to finally find success. Even with his poor play, his rookie contract will keep him on the roster for at least this year.
Odds Gilbert makes the team: 100 percent.
