Joe Haden has arrived
I have to admit I was happy when the Browns selected Joe Haden. I saw him being interviewed the week prior to the draft on ESPN and he came across as a great kid. Check out the video above where Haden is being interviewed during the Browns rookie mini-camp, and you’ll see that same positive attitude.
Joe Haden would still be a solid pick
After trading for cornerback Sheldon Brown from Philadelphia, most people are assuming that the Browns won’t target Florida cornerback Joe Haden with their #1 pick. That’s probably a good assumption, but I still think Haden would be a good pick if Eric Berry is off the board.
I just watched an interview with Haden on ESPN. He definitely comes across as a good kid. He’s very articulate and seems to be very personable. When you’re picking someone in the first round, the last thing you want is a character problem. After dealing with Braylon Edwards the Browns are probably very sensitive to that issue. If this interview is any indication, Joe Haden shouldn’t be a problem in that area.
