Hey Browns fans, you wondering what Ray Horton is going to do with the Cleveland Browns defense? Wonder no more, in an Arizona radio interview Horton said he will have the Cleveland Browns defense mimic the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. The Browns will be going to a 3-4 defense Horton said. He wasn’t say about it at all. So with the Browns going to the 3-4 defense I hope Horton has his eye on some good linebackers in the upcoming NFL draft. Not only does Cleveland need a linebacker who can play in open space, he needs another good corner back.
Horton should be focused on the Cleveland Secondary, he played in the secondary during his pro career. The only corner back on the Browns that Cleveland can depend on is Joe Haden. Then you have T.J. Ward back there too. Ward seems to go down with injury a lot and he missed a lot of time. When Haden and Ward are missing from the Cleveland secondary, the Browns have a real problem.
Horton has to fill the holes on the Browns defense. He needs to either draft some players or obtain them through free agency. The Browns have to pay attention to the defense in the next draft. If they are indeed going to mimic the Steelers defense they have to have some guys added to the rooster. The Steelers defense was ranked the toughest for most of the 2012 season.
