Stud: Sheldrick Redwine, Safety
When it comes to the safety corps in Cleveland, all eyes have been on Karl Joseph, Andrew Sendejo, and rookie Grant Delpit. Joe Woods, the Browns new defensive coordinator, is expected to use three safeties in his base defense and those are the three guys that are supposed to be the starters for him.
However there’s another name that wants to be included in the mix, and after the way he started a training camp he probably should be. Second-year safety Sheldrick Redwine has been standing out early in camp and he looks vastly improved from what he showed during his rookie camp.
As a fourth-round pick a season ago, Redwine came into the league with a lot of talent but needed to learn the NFL game. Due to injuries at the position, he was given plenty of chances in his first season had had 12 games played with five starts. He finished with 42 tackles and two pass defenses before becoming a forgotten man due to the additions.
Once the team got together for camp though, he reminded us all he was there. In their first practice of the year, Redwine stepped up and had a couple of picks while also being in position to knock several other passes down.
He hasn’t had any other days stand out the way day one did but Redwine continues to be a solid player nonetheless during Cleveland’s practices. What was once a position in need of help, the safety spot suddenly looks strong for the Browns.
