2. Who will shine in the secondary?
Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams have the No. 1 and No. 2 jobs locked down. There was a shot that Kevin Johnson could try and challenge Williams, and he was playing really well in camp. Still, the Browns would have preferred Johnson to become nothing more than the No. 3 cornerback while Williams maintained his role as a starter opposite Ward.
Of course, with Johnson’s recent injury there’s no way Williams will lose a number two job. As for the number three position, that’s up in the air right now. Terrence Mitchell and M.J. Stewart, who was recently claimed off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are the main guys trying to fight for that job. Undrafted free agent A.J. Green at Oklahoma State is also in the mix.
However green hasn’t made too many waves in camp so far whereas Stewart has been standing out in several of the practices in camp so far. A former second-round pick, Stewart has been playing very well in the slot, which is where he would likely line up should he earn that third spot.
Cleveland is deep at corner and the recent injury to Johnson will actually open the door for some of the fringe players who have the talent to produce but could have been lost in the numbers game.
