Predicting the Cleveland Browns secondary depth charts in 2020
Over the past couple of offseasons, the Cleveland Browns have made some huge changes to their roster. Several positional groups in that span )from 2018 through now) have gone over complete overhauls — and that can be said of the entire secondary.
When John Dorsey took over as the team’s general manager near the end of the 2017 season, he made fixing the secondary a priority. In his first draft with Cleveland, he used the fourth overall pick on Denzel Ward out of Ohio State, which gave them a legit No. 1 cornerback to match up against the best in the game.
He also traded for safety Damarious Randall and paid big money to former Oakland cornerback T.J. Carrie. Dorsey even added a familiar face as he brought in Terrance Mitchell, who worked with him while they were both with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Dorsey followed that up by drafting Greedy Williams out of LSU in the 2019 NFL Draft. Williams was taken in the second round, which was a shock in itself as many experts had a first-round grade on him. There was also another addition at safety as Dorsey signed Morgan Burnett, who he knew from his days with the Green Bay Packers.
With Dorsey out, the overhaul has continued. Andrew Berry is now in charge of the roster and he released Burnett and Carrie while electing not to re-sign Randall. He replaced them with cornerback Kevin Johnson and safeties Karl Joseph, Andrew Sendejo, and rookie Grant Delpit.
Now with all the musical chairs coming to a halt, we can look at the new Cleveland secondary and predict the order they will take in their 2020 depth chart, starting with the first-string cornerbacks.
