Analyzing the Cleveland Browns depth chart at cornerback
Seventh-round rookie: Donnie Lewis, Jr.
The Cleveland Browns had a strong need at corner and felt as though they met that with the selection of Greedy Williams. However, he wasn’t the only player they selected in the 2018 NFL Draft at the position.
In the seventh round, they took Dinnie Lewis, Jr. out of Tulane. The 221st overall pick, Lewis had 160 tackles and seven picks. He was credited with 37 pass deflections as well, showing a knack for being around the ball.
Undrafted rookie No. 1: Jhavonte Dean
The Browns have two undrafted free agents trying to make the team this season. One who has an outside shot is Jhavonte Dean out of Miami. Dean is another corner with great length as he stands 6-foot-1, but he’s pretty thin and can stand to add some bulk.
Originally a member of Blinn College, Dean transferred to the Hurricanes in 2017. In those two years, he had 28 tackles and three interceptions. His ability to find the ball could help him as he tries to make an impression in camp.
Undrafted rookie No. 2: Jermaine Ponder
Jermaine Ponder has a long road ahead of him as he hopes to make the team. Buried on the chart, Ponder comes in older than most rookies at the age of 24. A product of St. Francis in Pennsylvania, Ponder was a solid player but didn’t face the stiffest of competition.
